Admirals Game Results

  • 1 year 24 weeks ago

    Two good teams squared off in a familiar place. Syracuse won this round.

    SYR-2
    NOR-1

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed just 1 goal on 24 shots for the win. He's unbeaten. He has a sub-2 GAA, and a save percentage of .924. I wouldn't be in a rush to return him to the Coast once Helenius is back up to speed, which begs the question of what the Lightning will choose to do with either Riku or Cedrick, if anything.

    First Period
    SYR Brown, (4) (Cote, Sergeev), 1:53
    NOR Whitney, (4) (Steckel), 14:29

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    SYR Kucherov, (12) (Namestnikov), 17:58

    Nikita Kucherov and Gudlevskis were the game's first and second stars. In my mind, the Lightning have an obvious dilemma coming up next season. By the time we roll into training camp next year, it's going to be fairly obvious that Jonathan Drouin, Kucherov, and Vladislav Namestnikov will be ready for Tampa Bay. Opening up 3 spots in Tampa Bay will be very challenging.

    Norfolk's had a strong start to the season, so this was a high-quality win for Syracuse. The two teams are now tied with 17 points heading into the rematch at Scope tomorrow. Syracuse is now 1 point back of the top spot in the East Division and 2 points back for the Eastern Conference lead after a slow start to their campaign. That's not bad considering the lack of a consistent second line and the lack of consistent play on the backline. Wait 'til Zettler gets those pieces in shape.

    The Lightning organization goes as deep as the ECHL.

    SYR-4
    WBS-3 (SO)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 26 shots (including a rare OT penalty shot) before stopping all 4 he faced in the penalty shot session for the shootout win. Since coming up from the Everblades for an injured Riku Helenius, Gudlevskis has put up a very respectable 3-0-0 record with 1 shutout, a 2.21 GAA, and a .914 sv%.

    First Period
    SYR Gauthier, (1) , 4:44
    WBS Zolnierczyk, (6) (Sill, Despres), 12:39

    Shootout
    SYR- Richard, Kucherov
    WBS- NONE

    Nikita Kucherov and Danick Gauthier were the game's first and third stars. Gauthier always amazes me with his ability to chip in despite always seemingly being on the fringe between the ECHL and AHL. This was Danick's second game up from the Coast and, as usual, he found a way to contribute. Depth is a wonderful thing.

    Syracuse heads back to familiar territory Friday and Saturday to play Norfolk.

    Led by Nikita Kucherov's second-straight four-point night, the Syracuse Crunch rallied past the Rochester Americans in the shootout, 5-4, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    Kucherov, the American Hockey League's rookie of the month, registered a pair of goals and assists, as well as a shootout goal in the Crunch's fifth-straight win. The Russian leads the league with 10 goals.

    "It's great, it felt good," Kucherov said of the award. "I just need to keep working."

    "He just makes a lot of plays that other guys don't," said Crunch coach Rob Zettler. "He sees the ice so well."

    The 'ovs spur an amazing Crunch comeback.

    RCH-4
    SYR-5 (SO)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 4 goals on 33 shots in regulation and OT before stopping 4 of 5 in the penalty shot session for the win.

    First Period
    RCH Adam, (8) (McNabb, Sulzer), 3:25 (PP)

    Shootout
    RCH- Jacobs
    SYR- Kucherov, Paquette

    Nikita Kucherov and Vladislav Namestnikov were the game's first and second stars. As of this moment, Kucherov is 1 back of the AHL lead in points and up by 2 for the league lead in goals. Namestnikov had quietly snuck into a tie for 3rd in the AHL in scoring and, along with Kucherov, is tied with many others for 7th in the league in helpers. Nikita Nesterov also chipped in 1 goal and 1 assist and now has 1 goal and 6 points in his first 9 pro games in North America.

    It took a while for the team to adjust to having J.P. Cote and Brett Connolly not in the lineup, but they continue to have an unstoppable power play and a top line that always gives them a puncher's chance in any situation. They'll head to Binghamton to play the Senators tomorrow night having now climbed to 5th in the Eastern Conference with their 5 game winning streak. Think what'll happen if they ever find consistency in the back and/or something resembling second line scoring.

    Kristers Gudlevskis stopped all 22 shots in his American Hockey League debut and the Crunch surged ahead with five goals in the second period, lifting Syracuse to a 5-0 win over the Bridgeport Sound Tigers at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    Eleven players recorded a point in the Crunch's third-straight win. Jean-Philippe Cote registered a goal and an assist, while Nikita Kucherov and Luke Witkowski each added two assists.

    Matt Taormina, Evan Rankin, Cedric Paquette and Vladislav Namestnikov each registered a goal. JT Brown, Dana Tyrell, Dmitry Korobov and Nikita Nesterov chipped in a helper apiece.

    Syracuse moves on to face Albany on Wednesday.

    Two points the hard way.

    SYR-2
    UTI-1 (SO)

    Cedrick Desjardins stopped 19 of 20 in regulation and OT and 5 of 6 in the shootout for the win. He'll backstop most, if not all, of Syracuse's games over the next couple of weeks as Helenius recovers from the dreaded upper body ailment.

    Shootout
    SYR- Richard, Paquette
    UTI- Ferriero

    Cedric Paquette (Dump Truck!) and Desjardins were the game's first and second stars. Paquette scored the winning shootout goal to deliver the payload! They seriously need to play a truck horn when he scores. Nikita Kucherov continues to stake his claim as the most dangerous power play weapon in the AHL, aided and abetted by partner-in-crime Vladislav Namestnikov.

    Syracuse outshot Utica 34-20, and really spent the whole game hurling chances against the wall that was Joacim Eriksson. Forunately, even despite that frustration, they at least made sure to get the two points in the shootout session.

    Side note, wow, Utica. The AHL stuck you with the abbreviation UTI? At best that recalls Universal Technical Institute, which is the guys that break into your Judge Mathis in the afternoons (when you're too ill to go to work) to try to entice you to learn how to fix big rigs (not to be confused with the Cordon Bleu cooking college). At worst, that gets medical, as in Urinary Tract Infection. Now, I'm not one to tell you what to do as a franchise, but I might request the AHL to switch your abbreviation to UTC instead (University of Tennessee at Chattanooga having a less negative connotation). Annnnnd a rivalry is born. You're welcome.

    Syracuse draws Bridgeport tomorrow night.

    Mid course correction successful.

    SYR-4
    BNG-1

    Riku Helenius allowed 1 goal on 27 shots for the victory. I dare say he just defined himself as the #1 tonight.

    First Period
    SYR Sergeev, (2) (Richard, Mormina), 9:48 (PP)

    Second Period
    BNG Prince, (1) (Wideman, Petersson), 17:23 (PP)

    Third Period

    SYR Kucherov, (5) (Brown), 9:15
    SYR Paquette, (2) (Taormina), 15:38

    Nikita Kucherov and Vladislav Namestnikov were the game's first and second stars. I'd like to buy a vowel, Pat. Kucherov, as of this posting, leads all AHL rookies in scoring and is just 3 points off the pace for the overall league lead.

    Syracuse washes out the taste of that bitter defeat last night at the hands of the Senators. This was a big win psychologically for the team. They're off until Friday when they'll play Utica. Utica is the new affiliate of the Vancouver Canucks.

    FW Saku Salminent, Jokerit: Did not play
    2012-2013 Season totals: 13 GP, 1-1-2, E, 12 PIM

    2013 7th-rounder Saku Salminen, who got his first taste of the top Finnish league last season, has yet to make his 2013-2014 debut. Jokerit (15 GP, 30 PTS) next plays host to Kalpa (14 GP, 13 PTS), which is currently bringing up the bottom of the league table, on Tuesday.
