    Has this team given up?

    ALB-6
    SYR-2

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 6 goals on 28 shots for the loss. Ugly all around.

    There is A LOT wrong in Syracuse right now. A LOT. And although some tweaks have already been made with a view toward next season, I don't think Julien BriseBois was in Syracuse this weekend just to take in the scenery. As the second half of this season has unfolded, it's become clear changes need to be made, but this last stretch of the year may mean bigger changes. This team is fast sinking to the bottom of the conference, and it's got to be an embarrassment to the Lightning organization at this point.

    After putting the Syracuse Crunch on the board with a power play goal early in the second period, Brett Connolly celebrated with an unenthusiastic fist pump.

    The goal brought the Crunch back to within three, but the Albany Devils continued to pour on the pressure to hand Syracuse its fourth-straight loss, 6-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "It's a moral victory that we played better tonight than we did last night," Connolly said. "But it's still not good enough."

    The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins scored twice in the first period, and held on to hand the Syracuse Crunch their second straight shutout loss, 2-0, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    Syracuse had trouble creating sustained pressure, and was held to four shots in the first period and 16 overall.

    "For whatever reason -- it's hard to explain -- we came out flat tonight," said Syracuse forward Jon DiSalvatore. "You've got to be ready to battle, you've got to be ready for the pressure."

    Offensive outage continues.

    WBS-2
    SYR-0

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 28 shots for another hard luck loss. Lack of goal support is a terrible thing.

    First Period
    WBS Machacek, (17) (Ebbett, Dumoulin), 7:38
    WBS Payerl, (3) (Manderson, Zlobin), 17:39 (PP)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Gudlevkis was the game's third star.

    16 shots on goal. That's all Syracuse could manage in the entire game. 16 shots on goal. That's about 5 less than Bishop had to stop in the Third Period alone against Toronto the other night. 16? It's embarrassing.

    Crunch crushed by Albany.

    SYR-0
    ALB-3

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 2 goals on 36 shots for the loss. Hard to be anything but apologetic to your goaltender when you get outshot 37-13 in a game.

    First Period
    ALB Hrabarenka, (6) (Zajac, Urbom), 16:53 (PP)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    ALB Sislo, (20) (Hrabarenka, Zajac), 14:45
    ALB Sislo, (21) (McPherson), 19:38 (EN)

    Syracuse just couldn't manage anything on offense. Nothing. Thirteen shots is embarrassing. Flat out.

    Kristers Gudlevskis believed his team should have won.

    The Syracuse Crunch goalie, having stopped 28 of 29 shots in regulation and overtime, turned away the first eight shootout attempts. But the Hamilton's Mike Blunden broke through for the lone shootout goal, as the Bulldogs topped the Crunch, 2-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "I just try to stop the puck, because I think we deserved to win this game," Gudlevskis said. "That's it, just focus on that. I've worked on the shootout in practice a lot."

    Legendary goaltending by Gudlevskis, but no dice in the shootout.

    HAM-2
    SYR-1 (SO)

    Kristers Gudlevskis sparkled, allowing 1 goal on 29 shots before allowing 1 of 9 shooters to convert in the penalty shot session for the shootout loss. That's a shame.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    SYR Connolly, (15) (Namestnikov), 6:42
    HAM Leblanc, (12) (Ellis), 10:36

    Overtime
    NO SCORING

    Shootout
    HAM- Blunden
    SYR- NONE

    Gudlevskis was the game's second star. He was bested in the goaltending duel by counterpart Robert Mayer, whose performance included stopping Yanni Gourde on a penalty shot.

    Jon DiSalvatore's objective was to just jab the puck toward the net.

    With nearly two minutes gone in overtime, the Syracuse Crunch forward took a whack at a loose puck a few feet from the net. In a stroke of luck, the puck went off a Hershey Bears defenseman, fluttered up over the goalie, kissed the crossbar and fell just over the goal line to give the Crunch a 3-2 win at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "I'll take it," DiSalvatore said with a grin.

    Syracuse unleashes the secret weapon.

    HER-2
    SYR-3 (OT)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 33 shots for the victory. The Latvian rookie is now 4 games over .500 for the season and has inched his save percentage up to .901 for the campaign.

    First Period
    HER Brown, (15) (Newbury, Byers), 9:50 (PP)
    SYR Landry, (1) (Paradis, Gourde), 14:04

    Second Period
    SYR Smith, (5) (Rankin, Langelier-Parent), 2:48

    Third Period
    HER Watkins, (10) (Kolomatis, Byers), 9:13

    Overtime
    SYR DiSalvatore, (10) (Connolly), 1:50

    Jon DiSalvatore and Gudlevskis were the game's first and second stars. But, who cares about that? After nearly 3 seasons in the organization, finally Charles Landry was let loose upon the league. Tonight the young defenseman finally scored his first ever AHL goal. Congratulations.

    Also, as advertised, new signee Yanni Gourde had a helper in his Syracuse debut, keeping the forward at his point a game pace for the season.

    With the score tied late in the third period, Vlad Namestnikov shook his defender and posted up in the slot.

    When the pass arrived on his tape, the Syracuse Crunch forward wasted no time shooting it past Binghamton Senators netminder Andrew Hammond. The goal with 2:42 remaining capped a three-goal third period, as the Crunch topped the Senators, 4-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Sunday afternoon.

    "We had a good cycle and (Brett Connolly) passed it to (Jonathan Marchessault) behind the net," Namestnikov said. "He spun off his defenseman and found me in front of the net."
