    Crunch fail to protect an early 3 goal lead.

    Drew Olson was the game's second star.

    It's awesome that, depleted as they are, Syracuse managed to build an early 3 goal lead. That's what it's equally as heartbreaking they couldn't hold on to get the 2 points. Cedric Paquette (Dump Truck!) continued his strong play and now has 2 goals and 5 points in the last 3 games. Brett Connolly also has a modest 3 game point streak now with 1 goal and 3 points over that span. It's fairly shocking that tonight's goal was just the first of Connolly's AHL season, but you hope that opens the flood gates for him moving forward. He did wash down his regulation goal with a conversion on his shootout attempt, so that's a positive sign, too.

    These two teams square off again tomorrow. As it stands, Syracuse is 1 point behind Norfolk for the 8th and final playoff position in the Eastern Conference.

    Dump Truck delivers (again).

    SYR-1
    ADK-0

    Cedrick Desjardins stopped all 28 shots he faced for the shutout victory. Goaltending will be extra important if Syracuse is going to ride out this stretch at less than full strength, and Desjardins gave them that goaltending tonight.

    Third Period
    SYR Paquette, (6) (Gauthier, Connolly), 12:00 (PP)

    Desjardins and Cedric Paquette were the game's first and second stars. Paquette (Dump Truck!) had the game winning goal for the second straight game. Coming out of quite the scoring slumber, Brett Connolly also had an assist for the second straight game. That's a welcome sign from last year's 2nd Team AHL All-Star.

    Dump Truck delivers.

    STJ-2
    SYR-4

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 2 goals on 28 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    SYR Kaunisto, (1) (Langelier-Parent, Neilson), 18:10

    Second Period
    SYR Walker, (2) (Paquette, Korobov), 12:10 (PP)
    STJ Jaffray, (7) (Gordon, Redmond), 13:52 (PP)

    Third Period
    SYR Paquette, (5) (Devos, Gauthier), 15:36
    SYR Gauthier, (3) (Connolly), 19:05 (EN)

    Cedric Paquette (Dump Truck!) and Ray Kaunisto were the game's first and third stars.

    I don't know what it is about the IceCaps, but the Lightning organization could stick cardboard cutouts in jerseys and still beat them. SyraNo has just had their number - big time - and tonight was a win Syracuse really needed to right the ship even though, when you look up and down the roster, it's very hard to find familiar names.

    Syracuse faces Adirondack tomorrow as they attempt to put a little unlikely streak together here.

    The Syracuse Crunch can finally breathe a sigh of relief.

    Cedric Paquette scored with less than five minutes remaining in regulation to lift Syracuse past the St. John's IceCaps, 4-2, snapping the Crunch's five-game losing streak at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "I told them 'We are what we are, you game it out and play the right way and let the chips fall, and the result will take care of itself,'" said Crunch coach Rob Zettler.

    I hate all teams named "Bulldogs".

    HAM-3
    SYR-0

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 3 goals on 33 shots for the loss.

    Second Period
    HAM Thomas, (1) (St. Pierre, Beaulieu), 1:29 (PP)

    Third Period
    HAM Beaulieu, (2) (St. Pierre, Thomas), 6:47 (PP)

    Nikita Nesterov was the game's third star.

    Evidently hell hath no fury like Dusting Tokarski scorned. Tic stopped 43 shots in the blanking of his former teammates.

    Syracuse gets Binghamton on Wednesday. They've now dropped to 7th in the Eastern Conference.

    While Syracuse failed to convert on six power play chances, the Hamilton Bulldogs cashed in three times to hand the Crunch its fourth-straight loss, 3-0, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    Former Tampa Bay Lightning prospect Dustin Tokarski stopped all 43 Crunch shots for his first shutout of the season with Hamilton.

    "He played really well," said Syracuse defenseman Matt Taormina of Tokarski. "He did see a lot of shots, but we didn't really get in front to screen him."

    Rough result in Montreal.

    SYR-1
    HAM-4

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 3 goals on 26 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    HAM Blunden, (4) (Dumont, Tinordi), 15:55

    Second Period
    HAM Ellis, (1) (St. Pierre, Nystrom), 11:00
    HAM Dumont, (1) (Blunden), 13:06

    Third Period
    SYR Cote, (2) (Richard, Paradis), 15:13
    HAM Blunden, (5) (Ellis), 19:00 (EN)

    Tonight was a special game with the Bulldogs playing in front of the big league crowd in Montreal. Between that an Dustin Tokarski's obvious motivation playing against his old organization, Hamilton had some extra juice for this one.

    These two clubs square off again tomorrow night, and Syracuse should have Brett Connolly in the lineup.

    Update:
    Following the game Crunch GM Julien BriseBois confirmed Vladislav Namestnikov broke his hand in tonight's game.

    Cedrick Desjardins stopped 32 shots during regulation and overtime, as well as three out of four shootout attempts, but the Syracuse Crunch fell to the Albany Devils, 2-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "Cedrick was the reason we got one point tonight," said Syracuse coach Rob Zettler. "We gave up a number of Grade A chances, including breakaways and point blank shots that we normally don't give up...He came up huge for us."

    "We battled hard, gave everything we've got," Desjardins said. "But we fell a little short."

    CDJ bested in a goaltender's duel.

    Desjardins was the game's second star.

    Both goaltenders played really well and it took a laser from Kucherov to get anything at all on Kincaid. These games happen over the course of the year. The key is to not start cutting it too fine on your chances or overpass just because you've had a little scoring block.

    The Crunch are off until Friday when they'll face Hamilton.

    The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins jumped out to an early lead and held on to snap the Syracuse Crunch's three-game win streak, 5-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    The Penguins scored three times in the first period against Crunch goalie Riku Helenius, who played in his first game since being injured Oct. 19.

    "I thought we were rolling a little bit in the first period, and I felt good about it," said Crunch coach Rob Zettler. "Then they had a goal, and boom-boom, they followed it up with a couple more."
