Admirals Game Results

  • 9 weeks 4 days ago


    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    Yanni Gourde accepted the pass, saw the empty net and looked to finish off the hat trick.

    The Crunch forward, who had his father and 11 other friends and family watching, guarded the puck against the Phantoms defender but had the stick slashed in half before he could finish the backhand motion. Gourde finished with a pair of goals, as Syracuse scored three unanswered goals to top Lehigh Valley, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "I was waiting for those goals for a while," Gourde said. "I've been working hard and they didn't come. Tonight they did. It's special to always score, especially in front of your family."

    Vasiy and Gourde spook the Phantoms.

    LV-2
    SYR-4

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 32 shots for the victory. It's a solid stat line, but the real key was making big saves at key junctures of the game, like any really good goaltender does.

    First Period
    SYR Kunyk, (6) (Lynch, Dodero), 7:21
    LV Goumas, (2) (Delisle, Comrie), 17:00
    LV Straka, (10) (Goumas, Comrie), 17:24

    Second Period
    SYR Gourde, (14) , 3:23
    SYR Ikonen, (5) (Angelidis, Corrente), 17:45

    Third Period
    SYR Gourde, (15) (Richard, Vermin), 4:00

    Yanni Gourde, Henri Ikonen and Vasilevskiy were the game's three stars. Gourde snapped a 9 game goalless streak with his tally. Ikonen, for his part, has 3 goals in the last 6 games.

    With Springfield falling to Hartford tonight, Syracuse moves back to just 1 point back in the division with 1 game in hand.

    Should've saved some goals from last night.

    SYR-1
    BRI-2

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 23 shots for the loss. Quality start, though, nonetheless.

    First Period
    BRI Mouillierat, (13) (Conacher, Quine), 14:30 (PP)

    Second Period
    BRI Ness, (6) (McDonald, Conacher), 13:20 (PP)

    Third Period
    SYR Smith, (9) (Corrente, Richard), 14:52

    Vasilevskiy was the game's third star.

    Syracuse ends the weekend 3 points back of Springfield in the division with 1 game in hand on the Falcons.

    Crunch rebound quickly to crush Sound Tigers.

    SYR-6
    BRI-2

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the victory. One silver lining of the spanking the Crunch took against the Senators was that Gudlevskis got some quality PT in garbage time, and he carried that momentum over to tonight.

    First Period
    SYR Mormina, (2) (Marchessault, Angelidis), 8:47 (PP)
    SYR Koekkoek, (3) (Marchessault), 8:58

    Second Period
    SYR Blunden, (11) (Blujus), 5:29
    BRI Courtnall, (3) (Langkow, Pelech), 12:25
    SYR Richard, (6) (Blujus, Blunden), 15:56
    SYR Namestnikov, (8) , 17:24 (SH)

    Third Period
    SYR Angelidis, (13) (Blunden, Marchessault), 6:56
    BRI Persson, (5) (Stretch, Lashoff), 14:41 (PP)

    Mike Blunden, Jonathan Marchessault, and Vladislav Namestnikov were the game's three stars.

    The other silver lining of the debacle against Bingo is the Crunch had time to collect themselves and get some continuity going with the skeleton lineup in the final 40 minutes of the game, and that also carried over into tonight's game.

    Ex-Lightning 7th rounder Justin Courtnall had a goal against the organization that drafted him. Wow, that was a name from the past I wasn't sure I'd ever hear again.

    Shorthanded Syracuse crushed by Bingo.

    SYR-0
    BNG-5

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 5 goals on 19 shots for the loss before giving way to Kristers Gudlevskis, who stopped all 21 he faced the rest of the way. Syracuse's defense, losing Witkowski and Nesterov to the big club, was... poor tonight.

    First Period
    BNG Kramer, (2) (Wideman), 5:20
    BNG Puempel, (10) (Wideman, New), 12:19
    BNG Robinson, (4) (Dzingel), 13:55
    BNG Prince, (12) (Camper, Johnson), 19:27 (PP)

    Second Period
    BNG McCormick, (6) (Dzingel), 2:53

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    This thing was shaping up to be a train wreck all week, as the Crunch scrambled to find warm bodies to put in the lineup. And, in the end, it didn't disappoint. The team was outshot 40-18 and the Sens jumped all over them in the First Period. Such is life in the AHL sometimes.

    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    Less than an hour after receiving his award for AHL Goalie of the Month, Andrei Vasilevskiy was making his first relief appearance for the Syracuse Crunch.

    Trailing by one heading into the second period, Syracuse turned to the Russian netminder to close the door. The Crunch took the lead in the second, held the Penguins to four shots on goal in the third, and Vasilevskiy finished with 10 saves in Syracuse's 4-3 win over Wilkes-Barre/Scranton at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "He came out in the second period and made two or three unreal saves to start the period," said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. "Then we slowly felt good about our game again and slowly took over."

    Crunch outlast Penguins... barely.

    WBS-3
    SYR-4

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 9 shots. They were soft enough that he was lifted at the First Intermission for Andrei Vasilevskiy, who allowed 1 goal on 11 shots the rest of the way to eventually collect the come-from-behind win.

    First Period
    SYR Paradis, (8) (Mormina, Corrente), 4:16
    WBS Megna, (10) (Kostopoulos, Harrington), 14:31
    WBS Megna, (11) (Boak), 18:38

    Second Period
    SYR Marchessault, (10) (Namestnikov), 3:29
    SYR Blunden, (10) (Witkowski, Marchessault), 14:21

    Third Period
    SYR Ikonen, (4) (Vermin, Angelidis), 14:16
    WBS Rowney, (2) (Dumoulin, Kostopoulos), 19:52 (PP)

    Mike Blunden, Jonathan Marchessault, and Vasilevskiy were the game's three stars.

    The night also saw the return of Philippe Paradis from injury. Paradis has been a key missing cog from the Gourde line that has sputtered in his absence. Henri Ikonen also potted a goal for the second game in a row.

    At this moment, Syracuse's 51 points has them 1 point off the pace for both the division and the conference lead.

    Blujus, Vasilevskiy can't hold off the Pack.

    SYR-2
    HFD-3 (OT)

    Anrei Vasilevskiy allowed 3 goals on 38 shots for the OT loss. He almost helped Syracuse overcome what ended up being a 38-26 shot deficit.

    First Period
    HFD C. Bourque, (15) (Kostka, Lindberg), 12:00 (PP)

    Second Period
    HFD O'Donnell, (2) (Nehring, Spinell), 2:58

    Overtime
    HFD McIlrath, (1) (Hrivik, Kristo), 2:34

    Congratulations to Dylan Blujus, who scored his first pro goal on the PP to tie the game at 2-2 and eventually force OT. Blujuspalooza!

    Crunch rally to avoid meltdown.

    SYR-5
    BNG-4 (OT)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 4 goals on 28 shots for the OT win.

    First Period
    SYR Kunyk, (5) (Neilson, Mormina), 2:40
    SYR Blunden, (7) , 15:40 (PP)

    Second Period
    SYR Blunden, (8) (Marchessault, Mormina), 1:49 (PP)

    BNG Puempel, (8) (Mills, A. Grant), 9:25 (PP)
    BNG Camper, (4) , 16:45
    SYR Blunden, (9) (Namestnikov), 18:50

    Overtime
    SYR Marchessault, (9) , 6:48

    Mike Blunden (with the hat trick) and Jonathan Marchessault (with the OT winner) were the game's first and second stars.

    Syracuse coughs up the 3 goal lead, falls behind late in the Third Period, and still manages to squeak out the victory in Overtime. Thank goodness.

    Vasiy en fuego.

    SYR-2
    ALB-1 (SO)

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 36 shots before stopping 10 of 10 shooters in the penalty shot session for the SO victory. His save percentage rises to .923 and I don't know how he wasn't named all three of the game's stars after helping his team to overcome a 36-26 shot deficit.

    First Period
    SYR Namestnikov, (7) (Marchessault, Mormina), 8:09
    ALB Thomson, (4) (Burlon, Thompson), 10:40

    Shootout
    SYR- Lynch
    ALB- NONE

    Vasilevskiy and Vladislav Namestnikov were the game's first and second stars.

    Such a sloppy effort by the Crunch tonight, but Vasilevskiy was the ultimate eraser for the odd man rushes the team surrendered, helping them to snap a 3 game losing streak in the process.

    The Crunch scrambled back into a tie with Springfield atop the division at 46 points heading into tomorrow's matchup with Bingo.
