    Mike Angelidis didn't pause to think over his answer.

    The Crunch captain netted the eventual game-winning power play goal, chipped in a pair of assists, and dropped the gloves in a brawl in the final minute. But Angelidis was most proud of the two points in the standings after a 5-3 win over the Binghamton Senators at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "I'm proud the team got two points," Angelidis said. "We've lost a couple games there ... We got two in a row here. So it's key for us to keep going here. I think we've got to get our swagger back. The chemistry is starting to click here, especially offensively, hopefully we can just keep riding it."

    After totaling just three goals in the last five games, the Syracuse Crunch offense appeared to turn the corner.

    Yanni Gourde gave the Crunch the lead midway through the first period, Jonathan Marchessault added a goal early in the second, and after the Devils cut their deficit to one, Vladislav Namestnikov sealed the win with a breakaway goal in the third, as Syracuse topped Albany, 3-1, to snap a five game losing streak at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "I thought we started a little bit slow -- for six or seven minutes our execution wasn't there -- but we started rolling," said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. "I thought we competed hard. I thought the only time we were in trouble was the second period when we took three penalties in a row. It felt like they gained some momentum from it, they obviously scored on one of them, but we got back to our five on five game and controlled the play a little bit."

    Offense starting to come together.

    ALB-1
    SYR-3

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 1 goal on 21 shots for the victory. That's three pretty quality starts in a row as Gudlevskis adjusts to being the clear-cut number one between the pipes in Syracuse again.

    First Period
    SYR Gourde, (17) (Corrente, Ashton), 13:03

    Second Period
    SYR Marchessault, (13) (Namestnikov, Vermin), 1:42
    ALB K. Zajac, (1) (Thompson, Burlon), 9:16 (PP)

    Third Period
    SYR Namestnikov, (10) (Broll), 8:35

    Vladislav Namestnikov, Jonathan Marchessault, and Matt Corrente were the game's three stars.

    Syracuse had a couple of, frankly, horrible games as they tried to make the adjustment after adding Ashton to the lineup in lieu of losing Mike Blunden. They also had to deal with Marchessault being out of the lineup due to injury and a rash of callups, but you could see that game-by-game things were starting to come together. This was hardly an offensive explosion to get 3 goals, but now you're starting to see some lines gel and little-by-little the results are coming.

    Syracuse will jump over Hershey onto 2nd in the Eastern Conference with tonight's result and they'll be 1-2 points behind Manchester for the top spot when the night concludes. So, the hiccup that the Crunch had hasn't compromised their standings position to any great degree. The Crunch are still in a great spot if they continue to build up as they have been doing in the last 2-3 games.

    No love in Norfolk.

    SYR-1
    NOR-2 (OT)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the OT loss. He also stopped a penalty shot in the game, as well. It's another quality start for Gudlevskis, who has eked his save percentage up to .901. That actually matches his save percentage last season in the AHL before being recalled to the Lightning after Bishop's injury.

    First Period
    SYR Sergeev, (1) (Ashton, Cote), 5:19

    Second Period
    NOR Karlsson, (5) (Noesen, Manson), 7:47 (PP)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Overtime
    NOR Karlsson, (6) (Etem), 3:33

    Artem Sergeev notched his first AHL goal of the season, while Carter Ashton got his first point with the Crunch since his re-acquisition from the Toronto organization. Baby steps for the suddenly offense-starved Syracuse Crunch.

    Syracuse has goalscoring amnesia.

    SYR-0
    NOR-2

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 28 shots for the loss. It was actually a quality start, but he would've had to stand on his head tonight to help overcome the fact the team could only muster 18 shots on goal.

    First Period
    NOR Kerdiles, (9) (Wagner, Etem), 1:13 (PP)

    Second Period
    NOR Manson, (3) (Noesen, Karlsson), 18:42 (PP)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    David Broll made his Crunch debut and promptly laid a vicious hit and got into a fight in a pretty robust physical game that saw a combined total of 72 PIM's handed out. Many were of the not-so-nice variety. As for the actual hockey game, one just has to hope that the Crunch are just in the midst of sorting out their new roles since the Ashton acquisition, and once they settle into the new roles the offense will turn back on. One hopes so, at least, after the team has been outscored 12-0 in the last 2 games.

    Whose idea was it to play a game on a Tuesday night?

    SYR-0
    ADK-10

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 4 goals on 13 shots for the loss before giving way to Allen York. Your gave up 6 on 14 the rest of the way.

    First Period
    ADK Reinhart, (7) (Agostino, Hanowski), 5:27
    ADK Granlund, (6) (Hathaway), 10:11 (SH)

    Second Period
    ADK Cundari, (3) (Wotherspoon, Agostino), 2:24
    ADK Shore, (11) (Cundari, Poirier), 8:00 (PP)
    ADK Baertschi, (6) (Granlund, Hathaway), 11:42
    ADK Baertschi, (7) (Hathaway, Cundari), 17:19

    Third Period
    ADK Elson, (8) (McGrattan), 8:22
    ADK Agostino, (5) (Hanowski), 13:40
    ADK Baertschi, (8) (Wotherspoon), 14:43
    ADK Elson, (9) (McGrattan, Stevenson), 18:24

    Not a whole lot you can say. Sometimes you get the bear, and sometimes every bear in a 100 mile radius takes turns mauling you for 60 consecutive minutes.

    Syracuse Crunch head coach Rob Zettler still sees his team as a confident group.

    The Crunch fell behind despite outshooting the Springfield Falcons 18-8 in the first period and rallied to tie the score in the third, but Syracuse ultimately lost in overtime for a second straight night, 2-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    Despite multiple lineup shuffles due to injuries and trades, the Crunch increased their point streak to seven games to maintain their lead in the Northeast Division and Eastern Conference.

    "The last two games we lost in overtime, I get it," Zettler said. "We're able to scrounge a point out of it the last two games. We're still generating a lot of chances, we're just not scoring right now."

    Revenge of the Bolt Prospects alumnus...

    SPR-2
    SYR-1 (OT)

    Allen York allowed 2 goals on 36 shots for the OT loss. That's a quality effort for Syracuse's new backup.

    First Period
    SPR Craig, (12) (Sauve, Chaput), 7:11

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    SYR Angelidis, (15) (Richard, Koekkoek), 12:37 (PP)

    Overtime
    SPR Dano, (10) (Tyrell), 4:13

    York was the game's third star.

    On a night where Ric Flair was in the building signing autographs, it was a WCW-esque swerve that saw Bolt Prospects Alumni Ryan Craig score Springfield's lone regulation goal and fellow Bolt Prospects Alumni Dana Tyrell assist on the OT winner. It's like when Curt Hennig sided with the nWo in the cage at Fall Brawl. No!

    Syracuse holds a 1 point lead for the Eastern Conference lead and the overall AHL points lead, as of this posting.

    Syracuse backs into the AHL's top spot.

    BRI-2
    SYR-1 (OT)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 32 shots for the OT loss. Quality start for the Yak.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    BRI Graham, (3) (Conacher, Mouillierat), 7:41
    SYR Namestnikov, (9) (Gourde, Smith), 8:37

    Overtime
    BRI Mouillierat, (16) (Graham), 3:36

    Gudlevskis was the game's second star.

    The point from the OTL moves Syracuse into a tie with Oklahoma City for the top spot in the AHL and moves their edge in the Eastern Conference to 2 points over Manchester.

    The big news of the day, however, was the Lightning's acquisition of Carter Ashton and David Broll in exchange for a conditional 7th round pick in 2016. Ashton, of course, is a former Lightning first round pick who was shipped out of the organization in exchange for Keith Aulie (a deal we can now safely say neither team won). He's an accomplished power forward at the AHL level who should fill nicely for the injured Mike Blunden. Broll, a former 6th rounder in 2011, brings muscle, albeit not much else. He was playing for the Orlando Solar Bears in the ECHL prior to today's transaction.

    With a second point on the table in overtime, the Syracuse Crunch came up just short.

    The Crunch stopped the best power play in league on an extended 5-on-3 advantage in the second period, answered less than a minute after the Sound Tigers scored in the third, and Kristers Gudelvskis finished with 30 saves, but Bridgeport's Kael Mouillierat was able to score on a breakaway in the extra session to top Syracuse, 2-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    With points in each of the last six games, the Crunch has tied the Oklahoma City Barons for the most points in the AHL.

    "I think it's tough when you lose any game, especially like that," said Crunch captain Mike Angelidis. "I think we had a good chance to win the game. We came back after they scored. We just have to keep bearing down and hopefully we'll keep getting points as we go along."
