    Bolstered by an strong performance on the power play, the Crunch pulled away in the second period.

    Syracuse scored four times in the middle frame and netted three goals with the man-advantage, as the Crunch routed the St. John’s IceCaps, 6-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Sunday.

    “We had some early kills which were really good, and our power play came through,” Crunch head coach Rob Zettler said. “I think we were 3-for-3 on the first three of them, so that was a good thing that changed the game for us. I thought our guys played well and there was a number of guys who stepped it up tonight in a big game for us in a three-in-three.”

    IceCaps crushed under an avalanche of multi-point nights by Syracuse.

    STJ-2
    SYR-6

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 24 shots for the victory. Bath in the waters of sweet, sweet goal support, Kristers. Savor it.

    First Period
    STJ Hudon, (21) (Holloway, MacMillan), 1:23
    SYR Gourde, (11) (Blujus, Richard), 7:10
    SYR Tambellini, (24) (DeAngelo, Gourde), 14:25 (PP)

    SYR Drouin, (7) (McGinn, Vermin), 19:45 (PP)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Yanni Gourde, Tanner Richard, and Jonathan Drouin were the game's three stars. Jeff Tambellini and Anthony DeAngelo also had multi-point nights, with DeAngelo breaking the 40 point plateau for the season with his 3 assists.

    Syracuse continues to hover just on the outer edge of the playoff picture with just 11 games left in their regular season. Their 6-2-1-1 record in the last 10 games and back-to-back wins have given them a chance, but they'll need to keep up the pace to make it to the dance.

    One night after being scratched, Ryan Martindale broke out in a big way.

    Despite being held scoreless in 12 AHL games this year, the Crunch center netted a pair of goals and added an assist to lead Syracuse to a 3-2 win over the St. John’s IceCaps at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “He made a huge difference for us,” Crunch head coach Rob Zettler said. “Obviously, he scored two goals. But more than that, he ended up playing against their top line all night and he did a heck of a job.”

    Syracuse’s Jeff Tambellini added a goal and an assist, while Yanni Gourde, Henri Ikonen, and Anthony DeAngelo each chipped in an assist.

    Martindale comes alive.

    STJ-2
    SYR-3

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 23 shots for the victory. It was Kristers' first win since February 19th... exactly one month.

    First Period
    STJ Dumont, (18) (Lernout, Didier), 6:31
    SYR Martindale, (1) (Taormina, Ikonen), 8:32

    Second Period

    SYR Tambellini, (23) (Gourde, Martindale), 13:06

    Third Period
    STJ McNally, (5) (Scherbak, Johnston), 7:58

    Jeff Tambellini, Ryan Martindale, and Anthony DeAngelo were the game's three stars. Martindale's 3 point night equaled his production from his previous 11 games in a Crunch jersey.

    Henri Ikonen broke a streak of 15 games without a point.

    Crunch comeback falls short in OT.

    SYR-3
    BNG-4 (OT)

    Adam Wilcox allowed 4 goals on 24 shots for the OT loss.

    First Period

    Second Period
    BNG Bailey, (8) (Carlisle, Akeson), 1:47
    BNG Rupert, (10) (McCormick, Claesson), 13:01

    Third Period

    SYR Drouin, (5) (Taormina, Peca), 10:19 (PP)
    BNG Leveille, (1) (Flanagan, Keranen), 12:08

    Overtime
    BNG Flanagan, (6) (McCormick), 0:36

    Matt Taormina was the game's third star.

    Syracuse stormed out of a 2-0 hole in the Second Period to score 3 straight goals, only to see the game tied up less than 2 minutes later and eventually lose in OT. Frustrating. On the good side, Jonathan Drouin is at a point a game clip since returning to Syracuse, although his -7 in those 4 games looks mighty ugly, on paper.

    Furious comeback bid falls short.

    SYR-2
    SPR-4

    Adam Wilcox allowed 3 goals on 31 shots for the loss. All three goals were on deflections, including one off a Crunch stick.

    SPR Szwarz, (6) (Dauphin, Selleck), 19:59 (EN)

    Jeff Tambellini was the game's second star.

    Jonathan Drouin was held scoreless for the Crunch, although he was extremely active in the contest, registering 5 shots on goal and creating multiple chances.

    Center Tanner Richard was held out of the lineup, possibly for a potential recall to Tampa Bay in light of injuries suffered in the Lightning game earlier in the afternoon.

    One night after returning to the Crunch lineup, Jonathan Drouin found the back of the net. Twice.

    The 20-year-old forward notched a pair of early goals, but Syracuse let the lead slip away in a 7-4 loss to the Rochester Americans at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I thought we had a few turnovers in the second period that led to some goals, but I didn’t think it was anything outrageous,” Crunch head coach Rob Zettler said. “Then I thought we took some penalties in the third that hurt us. That was the difference.”

    RCH Baptiste, (9) (Guptill), 19:22 (EN)

    Jonathan Drouin was the game's second star after opening up the game with a pair of goals. At a minimum, he's repairing his trade value with this early production for Syracuse.

    In a game that featured the return of Jonathan Drouin, the offense was generated from a more unlikely source.

    Luke Witkowski, a stay-at-home defenseman who had one goal in 53 previous games, registered a pair of goals to lead the Syracuse Crunch to a 5-2 victory over the Bridgeport Sound Tigers at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday. With the win, Syracuse has points in five consecutive games.

    “I’d say luck,” Witkowski said of his goals. “Most of my goals are bouncing in off guys or just gritty goals. That last one happened to be me driving the net. I’ll take them when I can get them.”

    The return of Drouinsanity overshadowed by the wizardry of Witkowski.

    BRI-2
    SYR-5

    Adam Wilcox allowed 2 goals on 27 shots for the victory. Zettler continues to ride the hot hand after Wilcox has gone 4-0-1 in his last 5 starts. He's got a sporty .934 save percentage thus far in his four starts in March.

    First Period
    SYR Witkowski, (2) , 13:15
    SYR Tambellini, (19) (Vermin, Dotchin), 13:49
    BRI Kearns, (22) (Halmo, Lafranchise), 19:42

    Second Period
    SYR Witkowski, (3) (Drouin, Peca), 11:14

    Third Period
    SYR Gourde, (9) (Richard, Taormina), 14:23
    BRI Fritz, (2) (Quine, Finn), 18:17
    SYR Gourde, (10) (Richard), 19:42 (EN)

    Luke Witkowski, Jeff Tambellini, and Tanner Richard were the game's three stars.

    Oh, and Jonathan Drouin had a helper in his return to active duty.

    Syracuse is starting to put a little stretch run together, having earned points in those 5 straight games. They draw Rochester Saturday.
