Admirals Game Results

    Syracuse searched for a spark.

    After being held to one shot on goal in the first period, Crunch captain Mike Angelidis dropped the gloves for a spirited bout in the second and head coach Rob Zettler switched around the lines for the third. Syracuse scored once in the final frame, but ultimately fell to the Toronto Marlies, 3-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “The start killed us,” Zettler said. “They were the better team for two periods, and we didn’t decide to play hockey until the third period when it was too late.”

    Crunch crushed by high-powered Marlies.

    SYR-1
    TOR-3

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 30 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    TOR Leivo, (6) (Brennan, Arcobello), 6:24 (PP)

    Second Period
    TOR Carrick, (3) (Brennan, Frattin), 4:40
    TOR Gauthier, (2) (Campbell, Clune), 7:01

    Third Period
    SYR McGinn, (3) (DeAngelo), 4:11 (PP)

    Tye McGinn was the game's third star.

    Toronto gave several of their stars the day off, including Bolt Prospects Alumni Richard Panik, and the Marlies still hardly looked threatened by Syracuse over the course of the game. Just two teams in a completely different area code in terms of depth.

    Crunch battle back from 2 goal deficit to salvage a point.

    SYR-3
    RCH-4 (OT)

    Adam Wilcox allowed 4 goals on 29 shots for the loss. Not a great stat line, but the defense in front of him was a bit tardy tonight.

    First Period
    RCH Ruhwedel, (1) (Donovan, O'Reilly), 5:26 (PP)
    RCH Rodrigues, (1) (Akeson, Dupuy), 9:32
    SYR Taormina, (4) (Paradis, Dotchin), 16:04

    Second Period
    RCH Carrier, (3) (Bailey, O'Reilly), 17:24

    Third Period
    SYR Angelidis, (1) (Blunden), 9:18
    SYR Tambellini, (6) (McGinn, Taormina), 19:11

    Overtime
    RCH Dupuy, (2) , 1:49

    Jeff Tambellini was the game's third star.

    The Crunch's veterans pulled the sled tonight with Mike Angelidis keying the comeback by finally getting the monkey off his back with his first goal of the campaign. It's much needed with Marchessault up top in Tampa Bay.

    Crunch fall just short of their own undermanned triumph.

    Tye McGinn was the game's third star.

    The Crunch entered this game with nothing close to a full compliment of forwards due to the rash of injury recalls to Tampa Bay. Hence, you had defensemen taking shifts at forward. Cats living with dogs. Pure pandemonium. And yet, the Crunch managed to outshoot the IceCaps by a pretty impressive 47-28 margin.

    When the Syracuse offense finally got chances, it struggled to convert.

    Crunch forward Philippe Paradis scored midway through the third period but Pirates veteran goalie Mike McKenna stopped the other 20 shots on goal, as Syracuse fell to Portland, 4-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday.

    The Crunch, who had won their last three games, have four of their top nine scorers called up to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    “It’s definitely a part of it, but it’s not an excuse,” said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. “It’s the old saying that other people have an opportunity. I didn’t think we made it hard enough for that team to play against us tonight.”

    Depleted Crunch fall to Portland.

    POR-4
    SYR-1

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 24 shots for the loss. After seeing Good Kristers in the last start he had, Bad Kristers reared his head tonight. Inconsistency is Gudlevskis' demon.

    First Period
    POR Brickley, (1) (Harper), 1:37
    POR Schremp, (7) (Shaw), 12:09

    Second Period
    POR Matheson, (2) (Balisy), 13:36

    Third Period
    SYR Paradis, (3) (Richard, Gourde), 7:59
    POR Olson, (1) (Gaunce, Balisy), 19:25 (EN/PP)

    Philippe Paradis was the game's third star.

    With 2 of the team's top forwards in Tampa Bay and Gudlevskis not on top of his game, things slid south almost immediately.

    The special teams play proved to be the difference in the third period.

    The Crunch took the lead with a power play marker early in the frame, killed off the Comets’ two-minute 5-on-3, and Kristers Gudlevskis finished with 47 saves, as Syracuse topped Utica, 2-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “To me, the guys tonight had a lot of guts to their game, a lot of battle to their game, and got a little dirtier,” said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. “To me, that stuff gets rewarded when you do those things.”

    Adam Wilcox received some reassurance from a teammate before the start of the third period.

    The goalie had multiple highlight reel saves to keep the game close despite Syracuse being outshot 25-11 over the first 40 minutes. The Crunch tied the score with two power play goals in the third, Jeff Tambellini netted the game-winner in overtime and Wilcox held the Senators scoreless the rest of the way, as Syracuse rallied past Binghamton, 4-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “(David) Broll looked at me in the locker room and ‘The boys got ya,’” Wilcox said. “I said ‘I’ll hold you guys to it.’ I shut the door for the rest of the period, and the guys sold out … The guys came out and it showed the character of the locker room.”

    Syracuse took an early lead and buckled down on defense.

    Jonathan Marchessault scored twice in the first 15 minutes and Adam Wilcox recorded 25 saves for his first professional win, as the Crunch topped the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, 2-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “He was calm,” Crunch head coach Rob Zettler said of Wilcox. “I thought he was square to all the pucks and he saw everything, which is a good sign. It’s good for him. The games he has played so far, I actually thought he has played well but we haven’t played well in front of him. It’s nice to give him somewhat of a light workload and a W. He’s earned it.”

    Rob Zettler summed it up in just a few words: very frustrating.

    The Crunch battled back from a pair of deficits but the Devils’ third period goal proved to be the difference, as Syracuse fell to Albany, 4-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “I think it was frustrating for our players,” the Crunch head coach said. “I thought the guys played hard. It wasn’t a beautiful game by any stretch, but the guys played hard, they battled, and came back from 2-0 and 3-2. Then we had a turnover in front of our net with seven or eight minutes left and it’s in the back of the net. It is what it is.”

    The Crunch’s Jonathan Marchessault and Yanni Gourde each finished with a goal and an assist. Nikita Nesterov rounded out the scoring, Tanner Richard added a pair of helpers, and Anthony DeAngelo and Joel Vermin each had one assist.
