    It's hard to lose when you're averaging 5 goals a game. Benoit Groulx must feel like he won the lottery after being tapped to coach this team.

    The new AHL website is bad, and they should feel bad.

    RCH-1
    SYR-4

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 1 goal on 21 shots for the victory. Life is good when you have low shot totals to face and sweet, sweet goal support.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    3:55 SYR Erne (1), (Blujus, Peca)(PP)
    13:01 SYR McGinn (1), (Erne, Witkowski)
    17:05 SYR Vermin (1), (Conacher, Dumont)
    17:27 SYR Bournival, (Dumont, Dotchin)

    Third Period
    6:55 RCH Bailey (1), (Fedun)

    Adam Erne, Gabriel Dumont, and Cory Conacher were the game's three stars.

    Syracuse's depth at forward this season is obscene, on paper, and it will only get better when Ryan Callahan gets healthy and (possibly/probably) pushes young Brayden Point down to the Crunch to learn to play center as a pro. With that in mind, Syracuse's ceiling this year may be defined by if/when the Lightning resolve their goaltending situation up top, and if/when Gudlevskis moves up because of it. Syracuse is likely to have everything else, so they just need the goaltending to potentially make an epic run this year.

    The Syracuse Crunch dominated in the second period and cruised to a win on opening night.

    The Crunch scored four times and held the Americans to four shots on goal in the middle frame, as Syracuse defeated Rochester, 4-1, in the season opener at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I’m happy for them,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “I thought they played the way they wanted to play. We had energy and we had some legs tonight. We made some plays tonight. It was a good start.”

    The Syracuse Crunch pushed the pace early and racked up the goals.

    The Crunch scored three times in the first seven minutes and held on against the Comets, as Syracuse defeated Utica, 3-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial in the preseason opener Saturday.

    “We were skating hard and playing with pace,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “The second effort was there and we had great habits. That was the difference in the first period overall.”

    Syracuse’s Adam Erne, Cameron Darcy and Gabriel Dumont each scored once, Michael Bournival recorded a pair of assists, and Dylan Blujus and Brian Hart each had one helper.

    “That’s the way our team wants to play this year,” Erne said. “We want to be ready from the start. It’s not slow hockey. … It’s moving the puck fast, playing forward and playing with speed. I think if everybody’s on the same page, it’s going to be tough to stop.”

    The Syracuse Crunch battled back three times.

    The Crunch answered each of the Comets’ three go-ahead goals in regulation but ultimately fell in overtime, as Syracuse lost to Utica, 4-3, in the Crunch’s home finale at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I think we battled back a lot today, which was good,” Crunch forward Matthew Peca said. “Even though we put ourselves in positions to have to battle back — maybe some goals we didn’t want to give up like the shorthanded one — but I thought we battled. We didn’t give up, we tied it late. Tough break in overtime.”

    Crunch score bittersweet victory against one of the league's top teams.

    TOR-2
    SYR-3 (SO)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 34 shots and stopped all 5 shooters he faced in the penalty shot session for the victory.

    First Period
    TOR Conacher, (2) (C. Smith, Valiev), 0:33
    SYR Tambellini, (27) , 6:33
    SYR Stephens, (1) (Broll), 11:53

    Shootout
    TOR- None
    SYR- Vermin

    Joel Vermin and Gudlevskis were the game's first and second stars. Recent ATO signee Mitchell Stephens scored his first pro goal in the win, as well, and led all Crunch skaters with 5 shots on goal.

    It was a big win against a very talented Toronto team that by far and away has had the best regular season in the AHL. Unfortunately, the Crunch didn't get any help in the other games around the league and were eliminated from making the postseason. It's a shame for a Syracuse team that's really seemed to find itself in the last quarter of the regular season and had a nice stretch run. As it is, they should finish well over .500 for the campaign with some momentum going into the offseason and some nice new blood coming onto the roster.

    The Syracuse Crunch pulled out a win, but their playoff hopes were dashed.

    Joel Vermin netted the game-winner in the fifth round of the shootout, as the Crunch topped the Toronto Marlies, 3-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday. Both Utica and Bridgeport also earned points to mathematically eliminate Syracuse from earning a spot in the Calder Cup playoffs.

    “We knew it was going to be a tough stretch and we needed a (lot) of help to make it happen,” Crunch head coach Rob Zettler said. “We put ourselves in this position. … It was good to get the win, but it’s certainly disappointing that we’re in this position and not in the playoffs.”

    Syracuse leaves a critical point on the rink.

    ALB-4
    SYR-3 (SO)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 32 shots and 1 of 3 to convert in the penalty shot session for the Shootout loss.

    First Period
    SYR Gourde, (14) (Erne, Richard), 9:29 (PP)
    ALB O’Neill, (12) (Lorito, Novak), 12:10

    Second Period
    SYR Erne, (14) (Gourde, Witkowski), 5:26
    ALB Lorito, (18) (Lappin, O’Neill), 13:23

    Third Period
    ALB Kujawinski, (5) (Rooney), 2:05
    SYR Richard, (11) (Vermin, DeAngelo), 5:35

    Overtime
    NO SCORING

    Shootout
    ALB- Thompson
    SYR- NONE

    Adam Erne and Yanni Gourde were the game's first and second stars.

    Syracuse falls 7 points back of Utica and Bridgeport in the playoff chase with both teams holding a game in hand on the Crunch. At this point, to make the postseason, it's pretty much going to take Syracuse winning out and one of those other two clubs losing out. Both scenarios seem incredibly unlikely.
