    There were a few firsts in the last Syracuse Crunch home game of the season.

    Adam Erne registered his first professional goal and Joel Vermin recorded his first goal in North America, but the Crunch ultimately fell in a shootout to the Adirondack Phantoms, 5-4, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday.

    "That was the positive from tonight, those guys scoring a goal and getting their first professional goals," said Crunch coach Rob Zettler. "Joel, I thought it was a great shot -- on and off the stick real quick. And for Adam, it was the same thing. That was the positive tonight."

    Syracuse is 1 game under .500 with 3 left to play in the regular season. Their last game is next Saturday at Hamilton, at which point you'd assume a few more Crunch players will join the Lightning for depth purposes during their playoff run.

    In a game marred by many physical altercations, the Syracuse Crunch offense had a breakout performance.

    The Crunch took a three-goal lead in the first period, and continued to cruise through multiple incidents, as they topped the Toronto Marlies, 6-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "We played a good game," said Syracuse forward Brett Connolly, who finished with four points. "I think they embarrassed themselves."

    Back to .500.

    TOR-3
    SYR-6

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 3 goals on 36 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    SYR Angelidis, (12) (Ikonen, Connolly), 1:00 (PP)
    SYR Paradis, (6) (DiSalvatore, Angelidis), 12:33
    SYR Gourde, (6) (DiSalvatore, Connolly), 18:38 (PP)

    Second Period
    TOR Carrick, (11) (Ross), 3:29
    SYR Marchessault, (20) (Cote, Erne), 10:25
    SYR Marchessault, (21) (Connolly, Cote), 12:38 (SH)
    TOR Brennan, (23) (Ross, Carrick), 19:18

    Third Period
    TOR McKegg, (18) (Marshall, Kozun), 4:09
    SYR Connolly, (20) (Namestnikov, Ikonen), 17:17

    Jonathan Marchessault, Brett Connolly, and Mike Angelidis were the game's three stars. New Crunch forward Henri Ikonen managed his first two AHL points on helpers to bookend the scoring for Syracuse. The 4 point night for Connolly points to him potentially providing some depth options to Tampa Bay in the playoffs as well. As I said after last night's win, this team is figuring out some of its chemistry for next season, and guys like Gourde and Marchessault finding their grooves bodes well for a bounce back next year. The team is back to .500 with 4 games left in the regular season, and if they can finish with a winning record that will be a major accomplishment considering this franchise supplied 9 prospects who became full time NHLers in Tampa Bay this season.

    During regulation, it was all about the dueling power plays.

    Both Syracuse and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton scored a pair of power play goals in the first two periods, but the Penguins pushed past the Crunch in a shootout, 3-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    Although it's late for a playoff push, Syracuse has points in seven of its last eight games.

    "I've been pretty happy with our game overall," said Crunch coach Rob Zettler. "We're finding a little more offense lately. We're getting some more pucks to the net, and we've got some more finishers on our team now too, which is a good thing."

    Down by three midway through the third period, Syracuse Crunch head coach Rob Zettler believed his team deserved better.

    Syracuse was outshooting Utica and had more quality scoring opportunities, but the Comets still had the advantage on the scoreboard.

    "I just thought we had control of the game, but they were winning," Zettler said.

    The Crunch's fortunes turned around quickly.

    Syracuse tied the score with three goals in the final 1:39 of regulation -- each time with the goalie pulled -- and Brett Connolly scored 2:36 into overtime, as the Crunch stunned the Comets, 6-5, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    Never say die.

    UTI-5
    SYR-6 (OT)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 5 goals on 25 shots for the OT win. The goal support came late, but whenever it comes it's always a beautiful thing.

    First Period
    SYR Paradis, (5) (Namestnikov, Mormina), 7:16
    UTI O'Reilly, (4) , 12:26 (PP)
    SYR Gourde, (5) (Korobov, DiSalvatore), 16:44 (PP)

    UTI Friesen, (5) (Lain), 11:39
    UTI Friesen, (6) (Biega, Welsh), 18:27 (PP)

    Third Period
    UTI Kennedy, (1) (O'Reilly), 9:44
    UTI Welsh, (5) (Friesen, Sauve), 10:49
    SYR Namestnikov, (18) (Paradis, Paquette), 18:21
    SYR Marchessault, (18) (Connolly, Gourde), 18:52 (SH)
    SYR Marchessault, (19) (Paquette, Angelidis), 19:07 (SH)

    Third Period
    SYR Connolly, (19) (Korobov, Namestnikov), 2:36

    Jonathan Marchessault, Philippe Paradis, and Vladislav Namestnikov were the game's three stars.

    You could watch 76 AHL games a year for the rest of your life and not see what happened tonight again. In pro hockey, having a 3 goal deficit at anytime in the Third Period should be a death sentence. Having it with less than 3 minutes left in the Third Period should absolutely be a death sentence. Having it with less than 3 minutes and having a man in the box for most of that time really, really should be a death sentence. The Syracuse Crunch scored 3 straight extra attacker goals late in the Third Period tonight to force Overtime. Two of those goals were technically shorthanded. Coach Gordon Bombay just called from Hollywood and even he thinks the plot tonight was implausible and ludicrous. That is not supposed to happen. Ever. There must not be a rock big or heavy enough for Utica to crawl under right now, because Syracuse bent the laws of time and space to find a way to win that game tonight. Wow.

    With the win, Syracuse moves to 1 game under .500 with 6 left to play. After winning tonight the way they did, who in their right mind would bet against them to get on the right side of .500 before the year's complete?
