    Syracuse unleashes the secret weapon.

    HER-2
    SYR-3 (OT)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 33 shots for the victory. The Latvian rookie is now 4 games over .500 for the season and has inched his save percentage up to .901 for the campaign.

    First Period
    HER Brown, (15) (Newbury, Byers), 9:50 (PP)
    SYR Landry, (1) (Paradis, Gourde), 14:04

    Second Period
    SYR Smith, (5) (Rankin, Langelier-Parent), 2:48

    Third Period
    HER Watkins, (10) (Kolomatis, Byers), 9:13

    Overtime
    SYR DiSalvatore, (10) (Connolly), 1:50

    Jon DiSalvatore and Gudlevskis were the game's first and second stars. But, who cares about that? After nearly 3 seasons in the organization, finally Charles Landry was let loose upon the league. Tonight the young defenseman finally scored his first ever AHL goal. Congratulations.

    Also, as advertised, new signee Yanni Gourde had a helper in his Syracuse debut, keeping the forward at his point a game pace for the season.

    With the score tied late in the third period, Vlad Namestnikov shook his defender and posted up in the slot.

    When the pass arrived on his tape, the Syracuse Crunch forward wasted no time shooting it past Binghamton Senators netminder Andrew Hammond. The goal with 2:42 remaining capped a three-goal third period, as the Crunch topped the Senators, 4-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Sunday afternoon.

    "We had a good cycle and (Brett Connolly) passed it to (Jonathan Marchessault) behind the net," Namestnikov said. "He spun off his defenseman and found me in front of the net."

    The pieces start to fit together?

    BNG-3
    SYR-4

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 36 shots for the victory. He gave his team a chance, holding them to within 2 of the Sens going into the final frame before the offense ramped up and delivered him some precious goal support.

    First Period
    BNG Prince, (17) , 3:15 (PP)
    BNG Puempel, (22) (Da Costa), 14:35 (PP)

    Second Period
    SYR Paquette, (16) (Namestnikov, Gudlevskis), 8:18 (PP)
    BNG Da Costa, (14) (Puempel, Stone), 12:40

    Third Period
    SYR Paradis, (3) (Sergeev, Angelidis), 7:42 (PP)
    SYR Connolly, (14) (Labrie, Angelidis), 12:59
    SYR Namestnikov, (17) (Marchessault, Connolly), 17:18

    Vladislav Namestnikov, Brett Connolly, and Mike Angelidis were the game's three stars. Today also marked the first point for new acquisition Jonathan Marchessault and the team also announced the signing of 22 year old left wing Yanni Gourde, who was a point a game player for Worchester in 25 games this season before being cut loose by the Sharks. Gourde and Marchessault, like Conacher and Johnson before them, fit the mold of undersized, skilled, and inexpensive prospects the Lightning have had huge success cultivating. Both should figure prominently into the rebuilding of the Crunch next season.

    Syracuse Crunch coach Rob Zettler was happy with the effort, but not the result.

    The Crunch allowed a pair of power play goals and empty-netters, as they fell to the Rochester Americans, 5-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "I thought our guys played well tonight," Zettler said. "I thought they competed hard, I thought they played well and I thought they deserved a better fate."

    Syracuse's Vlad Namestnikov opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal a little more than five minutes into the second, but the Crunch didn't stay ahead long.

    Syracuse falls short in a tight one.

    RCH-5
    SYR-3

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 3 goals on 18 shots for the loss. This was one of the rare games where you had an opponent getting 2 EN goals sandwiched around a 6th attacker goal. Putting that tidbit aside, 3 goals on 18 shots is an ugly stat line for a goaltender.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    SYR Namestnikov, (16) (Connolly), 5:13 (SH)
    RCH Larsson, (13) (Varone, MacKenzie), 9:59
    RCH Adam, (25) , 10:57 (PP)

    Third Period
    SYR Paquette, (15) (DiSalvatore, Henry), 1:55
    RCH Larsson, (14) (Tardif, Varone), 5:12 (PP)
    RCH Varone, (13) , 18:34 (EN)
    SYR Rankin, (12) (Paquette, Connolly), 19:36 (PP)
    RCH Zigomanis, (11) , 19:42 (EN)

    Cedric Paquette had the 7th multi-point night of his rookie campaign as the Dump Truck is closing in on a haul of about 20 goals. That'd be a nice number to get to in his maiden voyage in professional hockey.

    Syracuse Crunch coach Rob Zettler will look at the tape, but he already knows what it will show.

    The Crunch allowed three first period goals and struggled to get sustained pressure, as they fell to the Americans, 4-1, at the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester Friday.

    "All of our chances came from getting it deep and then going from there," Zettler said. "We have some good size and we have some guys that can grind it out down low, but we weren't committed to doing that."

    Thin Crunch defense ad rusty goaltending exposed.

    SYR-1
    RCH-4

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 4 goals on 26 shots for the loss. After the game, Head Coach Rob Zettler said Gudlevsis might've wanted a couple of those goals back. That's perhaps unsurprising considering tonight was Kristers' first game action in a couple of weeks since standing on his head against Canada in the Olympics. Rust and readjustment were perhaps to be expected.

    First Period
    RCH Larsson, (12) (Catenacci, Armia), 11:29
    RCH Tardif, (18) (Varone, Ruhwedel), 14:41 (PP)
    RCH Schaller, (4) (Pysyk, Lieuwen), 17:51

    Second Period
    RCH Armia, (6) (Gillies, Ruhwedel), 14:05

    Third Period
    SYR Angelidis, (10) (Namestnikov, Nesterov), 8:56

    With injuries and the recent trade of Matt Taormina leaving the Crunch thin on the backline, they had to press some of their more fringe prospects into service. The result was Rochester swiftly racing out to a 4-0 lead. Follow the minuses and you'll see exactly who Rochester was picking on. Couple a green D with shaky goaltending, and that's the end result.

    Syracuse's point streak is snapped at 6 games.

    SYR-0
    ADK-3

    Anders Lindback allowed 3 goals on 19 shots for the loss. If all goes to plan, he'll be recalled either later tonight or early tomorrow and Kristers Gudlevskis will be returned to Syracuse.

    Second Period

    Third Period
    ADK Matczak, (1) (Akeson, VandeVelde), 13:46

    Syracuse sees the opportunity to get back to .500 slide by the boards. Syracuse's next game is Friday, the night after Steven Stamkos is supposed to return in Tampa Bay. Presuming Valtteri Filppula is also back for the Lightning by then, one would presume Gudlevskis may be joined by 1-2 players from the Lightning to bolster the Crunch for next weekend.

    The Syracuse Crunch won their fourth-straight, but they didn't make it easy.

    The Crunch let a three-goal lead slip away in the third period, but converted on a power play in overtime to slip past the Adirondack Phantoms, 5-4, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    Syracuse coach Rob Zettler was glad to get the two points, but believed his team shouldn't have given up four goals.

    "I thought our third period was, frankly, borderline embarrassing," Zettler said. "I thought it was bad. I thought they controlled the whole third period. I thought we controlled the whole second period, and we turned around and we were completely flat in the third period."

    Surging Syracuse outlasts Adirondack.

    ADK-4
    SYR-5 (OT)

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 4 goals on 36 shots, but got the OT victory.

    First Period
    SYR Tyrell, (8) (Richard), 7:25
    ADK Cousins, (6) (Flanagan, Holmstrom), 17:28 (PP)

    Second Period
    SYR Paradis, (2) (Labrie, Angelidis), 11:29
    SYR Tyrell, (9) (Richard, Panik), 14:58
    SYR DiSalvatore, (9) (Connolly, Paquette), 15:16

    Third Period
    ADK Flanagan, (5) (Alderson, Alt), 8:43 (PP)
    ADK Alt, (3) (Lauridsen, Bordson), 17:10
    ADK McGinn, (17) (Gervais, Manning), 18:01

    Overtime
    SYR Panik, (3) (DiSalvatore, Taormina), 1:37 (PP)

    Richard Panik and Dana Tyrell were the game's first and second stars. Tonight was Panik's third straight multi-point game and he has 2 goals and 8 points over those three games. Simply put: we're starting to see the dominant version of Richard Panik re-emerge. Tanner Richard also posted back-to-back multi-point nights for the first time in his pro career.

    The victory moves the Crunch back to just 1 game under the .500 mark. Unfortunately, they're 13 points out of 8th place in the Eastern Conference, as of this posting. But, if they continue to extend this 5 game streak of games where they've gotten points, who knows, they might just make this thing a little interesting before all is said and done. Tomorrow they face Adirondack again with the planned starter being Anders Lindback before he completes his conditioning stint and returns to the Lightning.
