    Ondrej Palat did not dress for the Crunch, fueling speculation he may be on his way up to the show.

    Syracuse outshot Hershey 33-19, but still got belted on the scoreboard. Rotton bad weekend for Syracuse. They face Toronto on Wednesday.

    The Syracuse Crunch could have blamed it on bad luck.

    In a game filled with shots ringing off the posts and pucks sliding through the Rochester Americans' crease, the Crunch could have made plenty of excuses after the 2-1 overtime loss Saturday night at the Onondaga County War Memorial.

    "There's a few posts and a few shots that popped up on us or whatever, but the bottom line is we didn't bear down when we had the chance," said Crunch forward Tyler Johnson. "They did."

    All of a sudden, Syracuse is struggling to win close games too.

    ROC-2
    SYR-1 (OT)

    Riku Helenius allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the overtime loss.

    Ondrej Palat was the game's second star. Palat has 5 goals and 13 points in his last 8 games. I believe that technically qualifies as "on fire". With Benoit Pouliot possibly hurt in today's game against Boston, I wonder if Palat might be worthy of some consideration for a cup of coffee.

    Syracuse finishes their weekend tomorrow against Hershey.

    Jeff Frazee steals one for Albany.

    ALB-3
    SYR-1

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 2 goals on 25 shots for the loss.

    ALB Zajac, (7) (Janssen), 19:14 (EN)

    Brett Connolly was named the game's second star. He was also named the AHL Player of the Month for February today.

    Syracuse actually outshot Albany by a whopping 38-26 margin, but with Frazee holding it close, Albany got it with two quick goals in the middle of the Third Period.

    Syracuse draws Rochester tomorrow.

    Note: Richard Panik was re-assigned to the Crunch by the Lightning earlier in the day. He is expected to join Syracuse for their game against Rochester on Saturday.

    Palat x3!

    SYR-4
    ROC-1

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 1 goal on 27 shots for the win. He came within 1:35 of his third straight shutout when Bolt Prospects Alumni Nick Tarnasky stuck the shiv in his former organization's farm team.

    First Period
    SYR Palat, (8) (Johnson, Korobov), 10:17
    SYR Palat, (9) (Connolly, Oberg), 14:20 (PP)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    SYR Palat, (10) (Wyman, Johnson), 15:35
    RCH Tarnasky, (12) (Rissmiller, Ellis), 18:25 (PP)
    SYR Wilson, (4) (Brown, Mikkelson), 18:53 (EN)

    Ondrej Palat, Desjardins, and Tyler Johnson were the game's three stars. Palat's hat trick moved him into the top-20 in the AHL in scoring, tied with 2 others for 16th at 43 points. Johnson's 53 points are now tops in the league and Brett Connolly is tied for 4th at 49 points.

    The scoring is nice, and it makes everyone feel good, but the defense and goaltending is what really should scare every other team in the AHL. Syracuse has run their winning streak out to 8 games now, and when this organization went on the tear it did last year in Norfolk, it was just as much about stifling defense and solid goaltending as it was about glitzy scoring. Syracuse's 190 goals lead the AHL pretty comfortably, but the big thing to watch now is whether they can start to catch up to teams like Bingo and Springfield in goals against. History tells us that when Coach Cooper has it all in place, his teams are extremely stingy.

    Syracuse draws Albany on Friday as they go for #9.

    The Entertainer, en fuego.

    CT-0
    SYR-4

    Cedrick "The Entertainer" Desjardins stopped all 29 shots he faced for his second consecutive shutout. Nothing wrong with that.

    First Period
    SYR Labrie, (11) (Namestnikov, Connolly), 9:11
    SYR Johnson, (27) (Palat, Barberio), 14:29 (PP)

    Second Period
    SYR Johnson, (28) (Barberio, Palat), 18:16 (PP)

    Third Period
    SYR Wyman, (10) (Palat), 7:34

    Desjardins, Tyler Johnson (pictured), and Ondrej Palat were the game's three stars. Johnson currently sits 1 point behind Grover Nyquist of Grand Rapids for the top spot in the league in scoring and Brett Connolly is 4 back of Nyqvist in a tie for 5th in the league. Johnson also leads the league in goals and Palat is tied for 2nd in the league in assists, 2 back of leader Jeff Taffe of Hershey.

    After scoring just 2 points in the entire month of January, Mark Barberio has 11 so far in February.

    With Springfield getting thumped by Worcester today, Syracuse extends their Eastern Conference lead to 5 points over the Falcons and Senators with the Falcons hold 2 games in hand. Syracuse will go for 8 straight on Tuesday against Rochester.

    Not even 24 hours after notching his first shutout in a Syracuse Crunch sweater, Cedrick Desjardins was back at it.

    The netminder kept his streak going, stopping all 29 shots and leading the Crunch to a 4-0 win over the Connecticut Whale at the Onondaga County War Memorial Sunday afternoon.

    "You never expect that," Desjardins said of his back-to-back whitewashes. "Those were two big games for us and teams we don't see a lot. We need to step up against those teams."

    Most first impressions take all of a few seconds.

    For the first 13-plus minutes in front of his new home crowd at the Onondaga County War Memorial, Syracuse Crunch goalie Cedrick Desjardins waited for his opportunity.

    When the shots finally came - 26 in total - the New Brunswick native had an answer, notching his first shutout in a Crunch uniform and third of the season in a 3-0 win over the Springfield Falcons Saturday night.

    "You want a good first impression at home," Desjardins said. "I don't think it gets better than that."

    Cedrick Desjardin (pictured) raised shields for a 26 save shutout.

    First Period

    Second Period

    Third Period
    SYR Barberio, (8) (Labrie, Connolly), 4:37
    SYR Labrie, (10) (Cote, Wyman), 12:35
    SYR Brown, (7) (Tyrell, Cote), 19:33 (EN)

    Desjardins, Mark Barberio, and Pierre-Cedric Labrie were the game's three stars. J.T. Brown returned from injury and had an empty net goal in his first game back.

    Syracuse came into this game 1 point ahead of Springfield for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. This was a battle of titans with a lot on the line, and ultimately Syracuse smoked the Falcons like a fine cigar. Mind you, Springfield netminder Allen York made it interesting, but Syracuse outshot Springfield 46-26 in this game, including 17-8 in the decisive final frame. That was a 1 versus 2 game. Think on that. Then think on the fact that the Crunch have won 6 in a row.

    Uh oh, rest of the AHL. Jon Cooper sorted out the post-lockout madness. Jon Cooper has started to tune up the machine again. We've seen this movie before, folks, and we all remember how it ends.

    Syracuse draws Connecticut next tomorrow afternoon.

    Dana Tyrell believes it was a bit of hockey karma.

    His team trailing 3-2 with less than two minutes remaining in regulation, the Syracuse Crunch forward caught a break. The puck bounced behind the net, and despite many of the Toronto Marlies looking for the puck in the corner, Tyrell found it on his stick.

    "I think it went up my pants. To be honest, I'm not really sure what happened," Tyrell said. "I was forechecking the puck down - hunting it down - and it bounced up somewhere. I think it got caught up in my gear somewhere. As I was coming around the net, it dropped down in front of me and I had an open net.

    "If we work hard as a team, we're going to get bounces like that," he added.

    Tyrell's goal sent the game to overtime and the Crunch completed the comeback in the shootout, topping the Marlies 4-3 at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday night. Syracuse has shrugged its slump that lasted from late January into early February, winning its last five games.
