    Nikita Nesterov and Dalton Smith were the game's first and second stars.

    With J.T. Brown and Brett Connolly getting hurt in tonight's Lightning game at Winnipeg, we'll see if a forward like Marchessault or Blunden gets the call for tomorrow's game at Minnesota. The Crunch, for their part, face Portland tomorrow.

    The first surge gave the Syracuse Crunch a short-lived lead, but the second sealed the win.

    Syracuse scored 25 seconds apart in the second period and 70 seconds apart in the third, as the Crunch beat the Binghamton Senators, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "When we got on the ice after the goal, we just said 'Hey, we need a good one,'" said Crunch forward Joel Vermin, who finished with a goal and an assist. "It's crucial. Right after a goal, you need a good shift."

    Crunch's stars help pull out big victory over Bingo.


    Kristers Gudlevskis had an excellent night allowing just 2 goals on 45 shots for the victory. Both defenses were porous, but Gudlevskis outdueled his counterpart at the opposite end of the rink.

    First Period
    BNG Schneider, (1) (Prince, Wideman), 3:58

    Second Period
    SYR Marchessault, (2) (Paquette, Drouin), 5:19
    SYR Vermin, (1) (Blunden), 5:44
    BNG Puempel, (1) (Johnson, Schneider), 8:51 (PP)

    Third Period
    SYR Blunden, (2) (Vermin, Kunyk), 13:20
    SYR Corrente, (1) (Paquette, Drouin), 14:30

    Mike Blunden, Jonathan Drouin, and Gudlevskis were the game's three stars. Drouin had 2 helpers and a game high 7 shots on goal. The current plan appears to be for Drouin to remain with the Crunch through next weekend before he rejoins the Lightning.

    Syracuse travels to Worcester to play the Sharks next Friday.

    Legends were born tonight in Syracuse, New York.


    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 29 shots for his first professional victory in North America.

    First Period
    SYR Marchessault, (1) (Cote, Blujus), 8:44
    SPR Tyrell, (1) (Madaisky, Sedlak), 15:45

    Second Period
    SPR Monardo, (1) (Sifers, Madaisky), 3:53
    SYR Paquette, (3) (Marchessault, Kunyk), 18:51

    Third Period
    SYR Drouin, (1) , 7:18

    Some dude named Drouin, Jonathan Marchessault, and Cedric Paquette completed a Quebecois sweep of the three stars selections tonight.

    I envy the folks who were in the arena tonight. Not only did they get to witness the first North American pro win by Vasilevskiy, but the first pro point by one of the truly great young players in the game. A future immortal. A young man who needs no introduction. 50 years ago when they recount this night to their grandchildren, and they will, they'll speak his name with the hushed reverence it deserves...

    Dylan Blujus

    But, seriously. We love Blujus here at Bolt Prospects, and we love Vasilevskiy, but all that was overshadowed by the professional debut of Jonathan Drouin, who lived up to his billing. He was +3. He was dangerous all night in helping to tilt the ice in Syracuse's favor. And, of course, he scored the game winner on a partial break that began with a quick little defensive play in his own end and was completed with a top shelf, cookie jar breaking shot.

    Syracuse gets Binghamton tomorrow night as the Jonny (Jouer au) Hockey road show continues on its short run in the AHL.

    Jonathan Drouin chipped the puck past the defenseman, rushed down the ice and wristed the puck into the top right corner.

    Drouin, the Tampa Bay Lightning's third overall pick in 2013, netted the game-winning goal in the third period of his professional debut to lift the Syracuse Crunch to a 3-2 victory over the Springfield Falcons at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "I tried some passes today and they didn't go through," Drouin said. "I decided to shoot that one, and I'm pretty happy it went in."

    Drouin, on a rehab assignment after sustaining a slight fracture in his right hand during training camp, was on the ice for all three Crunch goals.

    "Those guys are easy to play with," Drouin said of his linemates. "(Jonathan) Marchessault is fast and (Cedric Paquette) thinks the game well."

    Less than a minute and a half after a Springfield goal, Syracuse found an answer.

    The Mike Blunden tip-in on a Luke Witkowski point shot cut the Falcons' lead to one but penalties limited the Crunch's opportunities to tie the game, as Syracuse fell to Springfield, 3-1, in the season opener at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "We were hurt offensively because we had to kill eight penalties," said Crunch coach Rob Zettler. "We were undisciplined, and that in the end was the difference. When we tried to play 5-on-5 and play our game, we were starting to get chances. Then people take bad penalties and took away our momentum. We wasted a lot of energy killing those penalties."

    Syracuse comes ever so close in its season opener.


    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 22 shots for the loss. He has his own rebound control to blame for one of those goals, but honestly, on most nights he did well enough in net to win.

    First Period
    SPR Hoeffel, (1) (Urban), 17:50

    Second Period
    SPR Urban, (1) (Tyrell, Collins), 2:19 (PP)
    SYR Blunden, (1) (Witkowski, Nesterov), 3:48

    Third Period
    SPR Craig, (1) (Sedlak), 19:59 (EN/SH)

    Mike Blunden was the game's second star.

    Syracuse nearly tied the game late at 2-2 when a Jonathan Marchessault goal was disallowed. Bolt Prospects Alumni Ryan Craig then twisted the knife with an empty netter to seal it for Springfield. Fellow Bolt Prospects Alumni Dana Tyrell also had a helper in the contest to stick it to his old organization.

    Syracuse faces Hartford tomorrow.
