    For Syracuse Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx, it was a little bit of everything going wrong.

    The Crunch struggled to finish on their offensive chances — including a pair of breakaways in the first period — and allowed two shorthanded goals from the Senators, as Syracuse fell to Binghamton, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “I thought it was one of those nights. Nothing worked for us tonight,” Groulx said. “Our centermen got killed in the faceoff circle. Our power play didn’t do the job. Our defensemen tonight struggled to move the puck. We didn’t have much speed.”

    Even with multiple players making their Crunch season debut, Syracuse found a way to pull out the win.

    The Crunch, whose lineup included four players on professional tryout agreements and a defenseman on one of the top forward lines, had four different players score in a 4-1 victory over the AHL-leading Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pengiuns at the Onondaga County War Memorial Monday.

    “Whoever is in the lineup, we just have to play very hard,” Syracuse alternate captain Yanni Gourde said. “We know these guys are coming to play. They’re on a PTO and trying out for our team, so we know they’re coming to play and they did a good job today.”

    Crunch make a statement against the league's best.

    WBS-1
    SYR-4

    Adam Wilcox allowed 1 goal on 32 shots for the victory. High quality victory for Wilcox after leaving the game against Toronto early with a minor injury.

    First Period
    10:57 SYR Gourde (12), (Walcott)
    14:54 SYR Walcott (2), (Taormina, Pacan)(PP)

    Second Period
    6:42 SYR Koekkoek (1), (Pacan)
    14:27 WBS Rowney (8), (Simon, Prow)

    Third Period
    17:05 SYR Peca (6), (Richard, Brodeur)(EN)

    Daniel Walcott, Wilcox, and Mathieu Brodeur were the game's three stars. A defenseman by trade, necessity has again moved Walcott to forward for the present and he has shown some ability in the role. Perhaps a discussion needs to take place with young Mr. Walcott that begins with the question, "Have you ever heard of Ben Clymer?"

    Syracuse regains the top spot in the North Division with the victory, 1 point clear of Albany with 2 games in hand on the Devils.

    The Syracuse Crunch went toe-to-toe with the top team in the AHL, but came up just short.

    The Crunch caught a couple bad breaks and allowed three Penguins goals in the third period, as Syracuse fell to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, 3-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I’m very happy about the way we played — we were a second-effort hockey club today, we competed hard, we did many good things — but I thought we lost our cool and I thought we ended up losing the game because of that,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said.

    Crunch drop heartbreaker against the class of the league.

    WBS-3
    SYR-1

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 22 shots for the hard luck loss.

    First Period
    15:34 SYR Dotchin (3), (Richard, Conacher)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    5:33 WBS Rowney (7), (Simon, Gaunce)
    8:37 WBS Simon (5), (Guentzel, Pouliot)
    19:26 WBS Guentzel (21), (Ruhwedel, Kostopoulos)(PP)(EN)

    Jake Dotchin was the game's second star.

    Syracuse slips 1 point behind Albany in the North Division with 3 games in hand on the Devils. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton had a gaudy .770 winning percentage coming into the contest, so it bodes well that the Crunch could play them as even as they did.

    The Syracuse Crunch seized the momentum late in the second period.

    The Crunch tied the score with 20 seconds left in the middle period, added the go-ahead goal 1:10 into the third and held on for a 5-4 win against the Toronto Marlies at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “I’m very happy with the way we bounced back,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “That game reminded me of the first game here. The momentum was shifting left and right. They have a good team, and we had to grind it out.”

    The Syracuse Crunch had their chances in the third period, but couldn’t find the go-ahead goal.

    The Crunch poured on the pressure and outshot the IceCaps 17-6 in the third, but St. John’s capitalized on a turnover to top Syracuse, 2-1, in overtime at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “Very disappointing outcome, obviously,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “We had so many chances, especially in the third period where we were flying, skating, and playing with urgency. We made one mistake and the puck is in the net.

    “This weekend was about that. Strong effort, strong game — we didn’t give much tonight — but the other team was very opportunistic and in both games we faced two solid goalies. It is what it is.”

    Organization's week of frustration rolls on unabated.

    STJ-2
    SYR-1 (OT)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 19 shots for the OT loss.

    First Period
    18:33 STJ Camara (1), (Brouillette)

    Second Period
    13:46 SYR Halmo (11), (Conacher, Vermin)(PP)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Overtime
    1:24 STJ Audette (7), (Matteau, Brouillette)

    Mike Halmo and Dominik Masin were the game's second and third stars.

    Syracuse does move 1 point clear of Albany in the North Division by virtue of the Devils' loss to Lehigh Valley. Still, the team has been a very pedestrian 3-3-1-3 over their last 10 games and can (and honestly likely will) do better.
