Admirals Game Results

  • 1 year 48 weeks ago

    Bears no match for Nacho.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 1 goal on 21 shots for the victory. Light work. He only faced a whopping 2 shots the entire First Period. 2! Life is good for the former WHL star.

    First Period
    SYR Johnson, (9) (Devos, Panik), 0:59
    SYR Labrie, (1) (Conacher, Cote), 16:46

    Second Period
    SYR Connolly, (4) (Brown, Taormina), 14:28 (PP)
    SYR Barberio, (3) (Oberg, Killorn), 16:00
    HER Carman, (2) (Orlov, Stafford), 18:56
    SYR Labrie, (2) (Barberio, Conacher), 19:23

    Third Period
    SYR Gauthier, (1) (Wyman), 16:54

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie (pictured), Mark Barberio, and Cory Conacher were the game's three stars. For Nacho, the night produced his first two goals of the season, as both Braden Holtby and Dany Sabourin were forced to bow before the might and the power that is PCL.

    Panik attack, y'all. That's a 5 game scoring streak for the pride of Martin, Slovakia.

    Congratulations to Danick Gauthier on the first goal of his professional career.

    Syracuse pounded Hershey for having the simple audacity to step foot in their rink, outshooting the Bears 40-21 in the contest. The challenge steps up a tier or two tomorrow, as they face the more NHL-talent loaded Adirondack Phantoms. Twelve games into the campaign, Syracuse holds a 2 point lead over the Penguins in the division with 2 games in hand, and their 44 goal are tied for tops in the conference even though they've played one less game than Springfield.

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie recalled looking at the scoreboard with 14 minutes remaining.

    With the Syracuse Crunch trailing 3-2, the forward saw 23 listed as his team's shots on goal. Twelve minutes later -- and the Crunch now trailing by three to the Rochester Americans -- the number had only changed by one.

    "We can't win the game (like that) if we're losing by two or three," Labrie said. "If you don't shoot, you don't score."

    Syracuse's 5-2 loss at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday snapped a three-game winning streak overall, and was the third straight loss on home ice.

    Helenius and the Crunch crumble in the third period.


    Riku Helenius allowed 5 goals on 24 shots for the loss. He allowed 3 of those goals on 9 shots in the third period. Helenius looked to be back on the right track after a shutout in his last start, but he's been knocked back down to a 3.78 GAA and an ugly .852 sv% with this result.

    First Period

    Second Period
    RCH Tarnasky, (3) (Legault, Schofield), 5:28
    SYR Panik, (4) (Devos, Killorn), 9:17 (PP)
    RCH Rankin, (4) (Biega, Foligno), 12:16

    Third Period
    SYR Conacher, (7) (Palat, Nightingale), 3:45
    RCH Foligno, (6) (Rankin, Flynn), 6:12
    RCH Brennan, (6) (Mancari, Sundher), 9:38
    RCH Flynn, (4) (Foligno, McNabb), 18:08

    Richard Panik (pictured) was the game's second star. After a slow start to his season he now has 4 goals and 8 points in 11 games, and a 4 game points streak.

    It's a tough thing to see Bolt Prospects Alumni Nick Tarnasky contribute for Rochester. Et tu, Tarnasty?

    Syracuse faces Hershey next on Friday.

    The defense doesn't rest for the Crunch.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 1 goal on 14 shots for the win. Yes, 14 shots. That's getting a full game check for half the work. Thank your defense, Tic.

    First Period
    SYR Devos, (1) (Korobov, Gudas), 16:07

    Second Period
    HAM Quailer, (1) (Nattinen, Dumont), 2:07
    SYR Angelidis, (4) (Wyman, Brown), 19:08

    Third Period
    SYR Johnson, (7) (Panik, Palat), 7:58
    SYR Johnson, (8) (Panik, Gudas), 10:55

    Tyler Johnson and Ondrej Palat were the game's first and second stars. Palat (pictured) is now tied for 3rd in the AHL in assists.

    Panik attack, y'all. 2 helpers.

    But, seriously. 14 shots? The Crunch already have an abnormal amount of offensive firepower. You're telling me they also have the ability to hold another professional team to 14 shots on goal defensively? Just give them the repeat now, if that's the case. It's just not fair to the rest of the league.

    Finland representing.


    Riku Helenius (pictured) stopped all 23 shots he faced to post his second career AHL shutout.

    First Period

    Second Period
    SYR Korobov, (1) (Taormina), 6:01
    SYR Wyman, (2) (Killorn, Gudas), 15:40

    Third Period
    SYR Panik, (3) (Palat), 18:14 (EN)

    Helenius and Dmitry Korobov were the game's first and second stars, respectively. Korobov's goal was his first career AHL goal. It was originally awarded to forward J.T. Brown who was back in the lineup tonight after missing a couple of weeks of action. He was +2 with 3 shots on goal. Wait til the rust falls off.

    Panik attack, y'all. Empty net style.

    The real story is Helenius getting off the canvas, though, with his first AHL shutout since he was a rookie about four years ago. His season GAA and save percentage are still the dog's breakfast, but readers of this site last season know what Helenius did early in the season in the SM-liiga last year when he turned one shutout into bunches of shutouts. It's a good omen for the Crunch.

    Syracuse wraps up the two game set against Hamilton on Friday in Montreal.

    Impressive thumping of a team with a lot of NHL talent on it.


    Dustin Tokarski (pictured) picked up his 4th win of the season by stopping 23 of the 24 shots he faced. His numbers so far look like a carbon copy of last season's, right down to the .913 save percentage.

    First Period
    SYR Conacher, (6) , 10:03
    ADK Zolnierczyk, (3) (Eddy, Couturier), 17:37

    Second Period
    SYR Panik, (2) , 5:41
    SYR Johnson, (6) (Taormina, Cote), 7:16

    Third Period
    SYR Taormina, (1) , 19:22 (EN/SH)

    Tokarski and Cory Conacher were the game's first and second stars.

    Panik attack, y'all! Off the milk carton and onto the scoresheet.

    This was a really odd game when you think that Syracuse actually got held down to 18 shots. As I said, there's a lot of NHL talent on Adirondack. On paper, they're one of the real threats in the conference, so to whip them 4-1 in their barn is good for the soul.

    Syracuse is off until Wednesday when they'll start a 2 game set against Hamilton.

    The game turned quickly.

    Having shut down eight previous Adirondack Phantom power plays, the Syracuse Crunch clung to a 3-2 lead with less than two minutes remaining.

    Brayden Schenn capitalized on a 6-on-3 with 1:02 left in regulation with Cal Heeter pulled from the Phantoms' net to tie the game and Brandon Manning found the back of the net on a 5-on-3 14 seconds into overtime as Adirondack stunned Syracuse with a 4-3 win at the Onondaga County War Memorial Sunday afternoon.

    Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

    SYR-3 (OT)

    Riku Helenius allowed 4 goals on 29 shots for the overtime loss. He's struggled in his past couple of starts and currently checks in with a horrific .824 save percentage. Ouch.

    First Period
    SYR Connolly, (3) (Conacher), 8:21 (PP)

    Second Period
    ADK McGinn, (2) (Syvret, Schenn), 1:07
    ADK McGinn, (3) (Schenn, Mangene), 8:45
    SYR Killorn, (1) (Palat), 13:31
    SYR Killorn, (2) (Taormina), 14:01 (PP)

    Third Period
    ADK Schenn, (4) (Couturier, Gustafsson), 18:58 (PP)

    ADK Manning, (2) (Schenn, Couturier), 0:14 (PP)

    Alex Killorn (pictured) was named the game's second star. I got a question on the message boards about Alex Killorn's quiet start. Two goals and six points in his first seven games is nothing to sneeze at. On the list of things that concern me about the start of this season, J.T. Brown getting nicked up and Richard Panik having his photograph on the side of a milk carton rate quite a bit higher.

    Syracuse came within 1:02 if taking a win against an Adirondack team that, on paper, looks to be one of the better teams in the conference. I liked the start, with Brett Connolly cashing a check he wrote in his interview after yesterday's game, and I liked Killorn bringing the team back after surrendering the lead in the first half of the second period. But, they got back on their heels a bit in the third period and didn't quite get that one more big save they needed. Welcome to the lockout version of the AHL, boys. You're going to have to up your game when protecting a lead when 1/4 of Adirondack's roster was playing in Flyers jerseys last year.

    The rematch goes down Friday night in Adirondack.

    It took all of 38 seconds for the Syracuse Crunch to find the back of the net Saturday, but it was all downhill from there.

    Seeing Brett Connolly and Alex Killorn crashing the net, Cory Conacher threw the puck on goal. After banking off one of the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins defenders' skates, it slid past goalie Jeff Zatkoff.

    "That was one good bounce we had all game," Conacher said.

    The Lightning's AHL affiliate suffers its first regulation regular season loss since the day of the Super Bowl.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 3 goals on 32 shots for his first regulation loss of the year. Your serve, Riku.

    First Period
    SYR Conacher, (5) (Killorn, Connolly), 0:38
    WBS Tangradi, (3) (Grant), 14:10

    Second Period
    WBS Holzapfel, (2) (Gibbons, Reese), 5:35
    WBS Bennett, (1) (Smith, Ferriero), 7:57 (PP)

    Third Period

    Cory Conacher was the game's second star.

    Coincidentally, the Norfolk Admirals also lost their first game of the season tonight, finally snapping that franchise's regular season win streak. Quite the run for both these players in Syracuse and that franchise down in The Commonwealth.

    Syracuse gets Adirondack tomorrow afternoon, presumably with the big Finn Helenius between the pipes.
