    Despite trailing by two at the second intermission, Syracuse Crunch head coach Rob Zettler's message was to stay the course.

    The Crunch outshot the Wolf Pack 25-2 in the third period, scored a pair of power play goals, and capped the comeback with 4:05 remaining, as Syracuse topped Hartford, 3-2, for its fifth straight win at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday.

    "I actually thought we were playing the right way throughout the game," Zettler said. "We got a couple goals scored against us — I'd have to look again — but I thought all those penalties in the third were legit penalties. We earned the breaks, we earned the calls. Overall, we were creating a lot of offensive zone time and wore them down a little bit."

    HFD-2
    SYR-3

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 17 shots for the victory. He had light work in his first game as the clear starter since Vasilevskiy's recall, as the team in front of him outshot Hartford by a staggering 45-17 margin.

    Second Period
    HFD Haggerty, (8) (Mueller), 2:50

    Charlie Dodero, Yanni Gourde, and Jake Dotchin were the game's three stars. Syracuse overcame a 2 goal deficit in the Third Period by getting a pair of power play goals from their typically dreadful extra man units. They ended up 2-for-6 on the game.

    Syracuse maintains a 1 point lead atop the Eastern Conference over the Manchester Monarchs. They also opened up a 6 point lead on Hartford in the division and hold a 7 point lead over the cratering Springfield Falcons.

    Vasiy wins the duel.

    SYR-3
    HER-2 (SO)

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 32 shots before denying 3 of 3 in the penalty shot session for the win. He's becoming a bit of a legend in the shootout.

    SYR- Marchessault
    HER- NONE

    Yanni Gourde was the game's third star. Can you tell the Hershey media picked the three stars?

    With the victory, Syracuse has climbed to the top spot in the Eastern Conference, 1 point up on the Manchester Monarchs. That's mildly amazing for a team that's 28th in the league on the PP. Imagine how good the Crunch would be if they had one.

    RCH-4

    While the forwards got off to a hot start, the Syracuse Crunch defense proved to be the difference.

    Syracuse opened the scoring 69 seconds into the game and Rochester answered with a pair of goals in the next 1:24, but three Crunch defensemen registered their second goal of the season in a 6-4 win over the Americans in the first game after the all-star break at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "Bottom line is we've been working on in practice to get our D more involved in the offense, just get them up in the rush so they're in there for shots, more people at the net and D being more active," said Syracuse head coach Rob Zettler. "They were tonight."

    Despite falling behind in the opening minutes of the third period, the Syracuse Crunch found a way to rally.

    Mike Blunden scored shorthanded for his second goal of the night, Mike Angelidis added the go-ahead goal on the power play two minutes later, and Andrei Vasilevskiy shut the door on multiple scrambles in the final minutes, as the Crunch topped the Hartford Wolf Pack, 3-2, to take the Northeast Division lead heading into the all-star break at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "Mike Blunden was unreal tonight, (Mike) Angelidis was good tonight," said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. "All the guys you count on night in and night out really stepped up."

    Syracuse takes the division lead heading into the AHL All-Star Break.

    HFD-2
    SYR-3

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 32 shots for the victory. As with last night's game, solid stat line and key saves at key moments.

    First Period
    SYR Blunden, (12) (Koekkoek, Corrente), 1:29
    HFD Allen, (6) (Mueller, Vaive), 5:17 (PP)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    HFD Hrivik, (5) (Bodie, Kristo), 2:31
    SYR Blunden, (13) (Namestnikov), 7:47 (SH)
    SYR Angelidis, (14) (Blunden, Mormina), 9:48 (PP)

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

    The win allows Syracuse to move 1 point ahead of Springfield into first place in the Northeast Division, 1 point back of Manchester for the conference lead. Almost as important, it allowed the Crunch to expand their lead over the Wolf Pack to 4 points in the ultra-competitive Northeast race, as the Crunch's division might be the toughest in the league this season.

    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.
