    Syracuse opened the scoring before the five-minute mark, but the lead lasted less than two minutes.

    The Falcons took advantage of multiple odd-man rushes against the Crunch to rattle off five-straight goals, as Syracuse fell to Springfield, 6-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    The Crunch has lost five straight, and given up five or more goals in each of those contests.

    “We’ve got to be better, that’s what it comes down to,” said Crunch captain Mike Angelidis. “We play good for 20 minutes, and then we give up an odd-man rush here and there. You can’t be doing that all night.”

    Despite controlling the play for long stretches, Syracuse kept digging out of holes created by defensive lapses.

    The Crunch battled back from a pair of two-goal deficits but the Americans’ fifth goal proved to be the difference, as Syracuse fell to Rochester, 5-4, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday. The Crunch has dropped four straight, and earned one point in that stretch.

    “I thought in the last three out of four games we should have had points,” said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. “We got one point from Rochester last Wednesday, but Friday night we should have had points and tonight we should have had points. We scored nine goals against this team in the last two games and we came out with one point. It’s not good enough.

    “The second half of the season you have to keep the puck out of your net. It comes down to good defense, and that’s all six guys on the ice.”

    Crunch fail to get First Period payoff and eventually fall in a track meet.


    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 4 goals on 22 shots before giving way to Adam Wilcox, who allowed 1 goal on 10 shots the rest of the way for the dreaded back door loss.

    Syracuse outshot Rochester 18-6 in the First Period, but could not get the payoff against Linus Ullmark. They ended up chasing the game for most of the rest of the night, successfully erasing a pair of 2-goal deficits before seeing the game slip away in the Third Period.

    With a chance to advance to the championship game, the North Division All-Stars came up just short.

    The Atlantic topped the North in the final game of the round robin portion, but ultimately lost to the Central, 4-0, in the championship game of the AHL All-Star Challenge at the Onondaga County War Memorial Monday.

    In the half 4-on-4 and half 3-on-3 format nine-minute format, the North — which features three Syracuse Crunch players — beat the Pacific 1-0 in the first game, lost to the Central in the second game 4-2, and finished with a 4-1 loss to the Atlantic.

    Crunch defenseman Matt Taormina also participated in last year’s all-star game, but enjoyed the new format.

    “It was a bunch of fun,” Taormina said. “The skills competition was the same as last year, which was great. It was good to see some of the different guys out there. This time it was definitely a different game.”

    As he rounded the final turn of the fastest skater competition, Matt Taormina’s grin nearly went ear-to-ear.

    For Taormina and Syracuse Crunch teammates Kristers Gudlevskis and Mike Angelidis, the AHL All-Star Skills Competition was all about having a good time with the best players in the league. The Western Conference used the final breakaway relay to pull out a 19-14 win over the East at the Onondaga County War Memorial Sunday, but the score didn’t matter after the final horn.

    “Overall, it was nice to see some of the guys outside of a competition and being upset with each other and battling back and forth,” Taormina said. “It was good to see everybody laugh and have a good time with a smile on their face.”

    The first six minutes was all Syracuse.

    The Crunch netted a pair of goals in the first 5:55 but the Bears roared back for the next three goals and emerged with the win, as Syracuse fell to Hershey, 5-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday. The loss snaps the Crunch’s five-game point streak.

    “We had a really good start,” said Syracuse head coach Rob Zettler. “(There was) a lull in the second half of the first period and they had some O zone time, but they didn’t have a ton of chances. I thought we had the better chances overall, and carried the play a lot through the third period and the second half of the second period. We had some unfortunate bounces … A little bit of clean-up, but overall I didn’t mind our game.”

    Season-high point streak for the Crunch.


    Adam Wilcox allowed 2 goals on 23 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    SYR McGinn, (15) (Peca, Taormina), 9:28
    BNG Schneider, (13) (Kostka, Dzingel), 14:55 (PP)

    Second Period
    BNG Kostka, (3) (Flanagan, Robinson), 15:22

    Third Period
    SYR Koekkoek, (3) (McGinn, DeAngelo), 7:21
    SYR Taormina, (8) (DeAngelo), 9:21

    Matt Taormina and Tye McGinn were the game's first and third stars. Anthony DeAngelo was just a goal away from the Gordie Howe hat trick, as he had two helpers, including one on the GWG, and a fight in a very full Third Period for the highly touted prospect. It was DeAngelo's second fighting major as a pro after he had his first earlier this month against Toronto. Slater Koekkoek broke a 10 game streak of games without points with the goal to tie the game up the contest in the Third.
