Admirals Game Results

  • 9 weeks 3 days ago

    Crunch comeback dissolves into defeat.

    SYR-3
    UTI-4

    Mike McKenna allowed 4 goals on 23 shots for the loss. Thus far with Syracuse he is 1-3-1 with a 4.23 GAA and a .868 save percentage. His acquisition has not led to the expected results thus far, needless to say.

    First Period
    13:22 UTI Rendulic (12), (Pelletier, Robak)

    Second Period
    14:42 UTI Pelletier (9), (Carcone, Rendulic)
    17:44 SYR Ikonen (3), (Comrie, McGinn)(PP)

    Third Period
    4:05 UTI Archibald (20), (McEneny, Kunyk)(PP)
    6:31 SYR Halmo (16), (Ikonen, Koekkoek)
    7:01 SYR McGinn (7), (Condra)
    8:15 UTI Zalewski (4), (Subban, Bancks)

    Tye McGinn was the game's second star. Since returning from injury on 3/3, McGinn has 6-2-8 in 8 games. And there ain't nothing wrong with those stats.

    Tonight's game was a frustrating one. Syracuse outshot Utica 38-23 and battled their way back from a pair of 2 goal deficits to get things level in the Third Period only to eventually lose the contest in regulation. The consistency from the net out needs to get dramatically better by the playoffs.

    Crunch make Phantoms vanish in OT.

    SYR-5
    LV-4 (OT)

    Mike McKenna allowed 4 goals on 48 shots for the victory. Suffice it to say McKenna hasn't cloaked himself in glory thus far in Syracuse, but he bathed in the deep waters of sweet, sweet goal support tonight.

    First Period
    7:40 SYR Koekkoek (2), (Lynch, Vermin)

    Second Period
    4:09 SYR Kurtz (2), (Thomas, Blujus)
    6:54 LV Fazleev (6), (Aube-Kubel)
    12:15 LV Martel (17), (McDonald, Zengerle)(PP)
    13:15 LV Miele (8), (Conner, Brennan)(PP)

    Third Period
    8:16 SYR Lynch (3), (McNamee, Racine)
    17:56 LV Martel (18), (Alt, Miele)
    18:56 SYR Taormina (14), (Lynch)(PP)

    Overtime
    3:51 SYR McGinn (6), (Taormina, Peca)

    Kevin Lynch and Mike McKenna were the game's first and third stars. McKenna was an interesting selection after getting bailed out by a Crunch extra attacker goal that took him off the hook for a late game softie.

    Oh hey, look there, it's our old pals Slater Koekkoek and Dylan Blujus on the scoresheet. Where you been? Don't be a stranger.

    At the moment, Syracuse holds a 3 point lead atop the North Division with 1 game in hand on Albany.

    Syracuse rallies for a point.

    First Period
    12:49 SYR Froese (26), (Ikonen, Vermin)
    16:31 STJ Terry (23), (Hudon, Scherbak)

    Second Period

    It wasn’t the result he hoped for, but Syracuse Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx liked his team’s effort.

    The Crunch — depleted by injuries and call-ups — tied the score early in the third period but fell to the St. John’s IceCaps, 3-2, in overtime at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “You know what? Hat’s off to our players,” Groulx said. “It was a great effort. You’re losing Matt Peca last night. We’re losing (Cory) Conacher tonight — couldn’t play. We had a few more guys banged up and we came up with that great effort. It’s a well deserved point.”

    Wilcox's revenge.

    SPR-3
    SYR-2

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 27 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    18:49 SPR Thompson (12), (Hunt, Balisy)

    Second Period
    4:13 SYR McGinn (4), (Froese, Thomas)

    Third Period
    0:45 SYR Froese (25), (Taormina, Conacher)(PP)
    10:04 SPR Greco (8), (McCann, Hawryluk)
    18:15 SPR Greco (9), (Thompson)

    Newcomer Byron Froese was the game's second star after finally getting into the lineup following his acquisition in the Brian Boyle trade. Ex-Crunch netminder Adam Wilcox was the game's third star after posting 29 saves.

    A few third-period mistakes proved costly for the Syracuse Crunch.

    The Crunch took the lead 45 seconds into the third period but the Thunderbirds tied the score midway through the frame and netted the game-winner with 1:45 remaining, as Syracuse lost to Springfield, 3-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “It’s very disappointing,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “We’re up 2-1, missed assignment on the second goal down low. With two minutes left, you have a defenseman diving down. It’s unacceptable.

    “I don’t think we did enough tonight to win. That’s it.”

    The Syracuse Crunch’s power play adjustments paid off.

    The Crunch scored three times with the man-advantage against the IceCaps, as Syracuse topped St. John’s, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday.

    For Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx, the key was putting Matt Taormina and Cory Conacher together to form a clear cut top power play unit.

    “Tonight was a five-player effort, but we decided to put Taormina and Conacher together on the power play,” Groulx said. “They hadn’t played together in quite a bit, because we were trying many different things. I thought the two of them were very good on the power play — like (Matthew) Peca, like (Tye) McGinn, like (Erik) Condra.”

    Another inauspicious McKenna outing.

    SYR-4
    BNG-6

    Mike McKenna allowed 4 goals on 33 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    5:59 BNG Bailey (17), (Carlisle, Flanagan)
    10:59 BNG Mike Blunden (13), (Varone, Bailey)(PP)
    11:47 SYR Walcott (4), (Peca)

    Second Period
    6:43 BNG Akeson (11), (Varone, Perron)
    14:54 SYR Peca (8), (Conacher, Thomas)
    19:07 BNG Bailey (18), (Akeson, Paul)(PP)

    Third Period
    16:23 BNG Akeson (12), (Varone, Harpur)(EN)
    18:04 SYR Kurtz (1), (Halmo, Ikonen)
    18:18 SYR Halmo (15), (Condra, Taormina)
    19:35 BNG Akeson (13), (Varone, Sieloff)(EN)

    Matthew Peca was the game's third star.

    Deduct the garbage time foolishness at the end of the contest and it's a 4-2 game, which looks less bad but is still not entirely inspiring.

    Syracuse had an emphatic answer to Binghamton’s game-tying goal early in the third period.

    The Crunch surged to score three goals in a span of 2:06 and continued to push the Senators to the final horn, as Syracuse beat Binghamton, 4-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “We got scored on — a missed assignment — but we bounced back right away,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “I thought we played a strong game tonight. We didn’t give them much. Kristers (Gudlevskis) was very solid when needed. Our (penalty kill) was strong. I thought tonight we were a structured team and we worked hard, and it showed.”

    Crunch redeem themselves with late whipping of Bingo.

    BNG-1
    SYR-4

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 1 goal on 29 shots for the victory. Strong performance for Kristers on a night the Crunch needed it after getting collectively shelled the previous game.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    6:24 SYR Gourde (21), (McGinn, Conacher)

    Third Period
    1:52 BNG Bailey (16), (Sieloff, Rumble)
    2:27 SYR Walcott (3), (Condra, Koekkoek)
    2:53 SYR Gourde (22), (Conacher)
    4:33 SYR Brodeur (3), (Condra, Walcott)

    Yanni Gourde, Gudlevskis, and Daniel Walcott were the game's three stars.

    Syracuse bested Binghamton 40-29 on the shot clock and by an even worse proportion on the scoreboard.

    The Crunch pull 2 points ahead of Albany in the North Division with 2 games in hand.
