    The Syracuse Crunch used special teams to snap out of their slide.

    The Crunch’s power play struck three times and the penalty kill held the Comets to one 5-on-3 marker, as Syracuse topped Utica, 5-4, at the Onondaga County War Memorial on Friday. The Crunch had lost nine straight coming into the contest.

    “I expected our penalty kill to get us out of this slump,” Crunch head coach Rob Zettler said. “Before tonight, we hadn’t given up a 5-on-5 goal in three games. That’s a big deal. We needed our PK to come up big. That’s what we talked about and they did. They came up big for us tonight.”

    Syracuse forward Jeff Tambellini registered two goals, Mike Blunden and Tye McGinn each had one goal and one assist, and Tanner Richard had two helpers. Matt Taormina rounded out the scoring, while Dylan Blujus, Ryan Martindale, Adam Erne, and Luke Witkowski each had one assist.

    Despite holding a 2-1 lead for more than 49 minutes, the Syracuse Crunch couldn’t hold on.

    The IceCaps netted the equalizer on a power play with 2:34 remaining in regulation — and after both teams couldn’t capitalize on the man-advantage in overtime — St. John’s pulled out the 3-2 win over Syracuse in the fifth round of the shootout at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday.

    The Crunch has dropped nine straight.

    “I thought we played OK and I thought we were in control of the game,” said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. “It was a 2-1 hockey game and we have a gaffe. It is what it is. … It just seems to be the way it’s going right now. We need to find a way to keep working hard and get out of this thing we’re in.”

    Syracuse opened the scoring before the five-minute mark, but the lead lasted less than two minutes.

    The Falcons took advantage of multiple odd-man rushes against the Crunch to rattle off five-straight goals, as Syracuse fell to Springfield, 6-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    The Crunch has lost five straight, and given up five or more goals in each of those contests.

    “We’ve got to be better, that’s what it comes down to,” said Crunch captain Mike Angelidis. “We play good for 20 minutes, and then we give up an odd-man rush here and there. You can’t be doing that all night.”

    Despite controlling the play for long stretches, Syracuse kept digging out of holes created by defensive lapses.

    The Crunch battled back from a pair of two-goal deficits but the Americans’ fifth goal proved to be the difference, as Syracuse fell to Rochester, 5-4, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday. The Crunch has dropped four straight, and earned one point in that stretch.

    “I thought in the last three out of four games we should have had points,” said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. “We got one point from Rochester last Wednesday, but Friday night we should have had points and tonight we should have had points. We scored nine goals against this team in the last two games and we came out with one point. It’s not good enough.

    “The second half of the season you have to keep the puck out of your net. It comes down to good defense, and that’s all six guys on the ice.”

    Syracuse outshot Rochester 18-6 in the First Period, but could not get the payoff against Linus Ullmark. They ended up chasing the game for most of the rest of the night, successfully erasing a pair of 2-goal deficits before seeing the game slip away in the Third Period.
