    Crunch steal a wild, improbable win.

    Shootout
    SYR- Blunden, Peca
    BNG- Akeson

    Mike Blunden and Tanner Richard were the game's first and third stars.

    A 3 goals deficit in pro hockey SHOULD be a death sentence. Syracuse improbably erased a 3 goal deficit after 40 minutes only to see ex-Lightning property Mike Kostka put Bingo ahead with under a minute to go. Not to be deterred, Tye McGinn tied the game with under 10 seconds to go before Matthew Peca eventually put it away in the Shootout. When you cough up a 3 goal lead like that, it's emotionally devastating. When you come back and win a game by erasing one, it can be emotionally galvanizing. We'll see if the Crunch get a bounce off of this win.

    Peca and hope return.

    BNG-2
    SYR-3

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 31 shots for the victory, in a one game cameo performance before heading back to Tampa Bay.

    Matthew Peca, Vasilevskiy, and Tye McGinn were the game's three stars. Peca, playing in his first game in a little over a month due to injury, had 1 goal and 1 assist in the First Period alone. I don't want to overplay Peca like he's the second coming, but he's the type of player that Syracuse doesn't have much of: a skilled playmaking centerman. They've got lots of grit, but not guys that are creators who put pressure on the opposing defense. That's why Peca's so important to Syracuse and why I have a sneaking suspicion their nosedive over the last month and Peca's injury were highly related.

    During his first shift back from injury, Matthew Peca found the back of the net.

    Peca was one of multiple players who contributed in their return to the Syracuse lineup, as the Crunch netted three first-period goals and hung on for a 3-2 win over the Binghamton Senators at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “I think any time you get a guy that’s a regular in the lineup back, it’s a spark and brings some energy,” said Crunch defenseman Slater Koekkoek. “I thought we had that tonight.”

    The Crunch made a bold move with a little less than five minutes remaining.

    Down by three goals and needing standing points to stay in the playoff picture, Syracuse head coach Rob Zettler pulled goalie Kristers Gudlevskis for an extra attacker. The tactic went awry a little more than a minute later, as the Americans’ Dan Catenacci scored into the empty net to seal Rochester’s 6-2 win over Syracuse at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    With the loss, the Crunch have dropped 11 out of their last 13 contests.

    “We were desperate,” Zettler said. “We had to find a way to try and make something happen, and try and score a goal. We were down by three.”

    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.”

    Hard luck loss for Vasiy.

    SYR-0
    BNG-2

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 27 shots for the loss. Given the number of goals Syracuse has been allowing lately, that might be considered a Herculean effort.
