Admirals Game Results

    Crunch rebound quickly to crush Sound Tigers.


    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.


    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

    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.

    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.


    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.

    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
    SYR Ikonen, (3) (Vermin, Angelidis), 3:56

    Third Period
    SYR Blujus, (1) (Namestnikov), 3:58 (PP)

    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.

    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 McCormick, (5) (Mills), 5:49 (SH)

    Third Period
    BNG Schneider, (12) (Puempel), 4:14
    BNG Puempel, (8) (Mills, A. Grant), 9:25 (PP)
    BNG Camper, (4) , 16:45
    SYR Blunden, (9) (Namestnikov), 18:50

    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.

    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

    SYR- Lynch

    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.

    A power play worse than Tampa Bay's.


    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 27 shots for the loss. The number looks ugly, but I can't be mad about any of the three goals. The first was a clean faceoff loss and a seeing eye point shot through a ton of traffic. Second goal was a breakaway after an awful Gourde turnover where Kristers got the first shot but got beat on the rebound. Third goal was a 2-on-1 where Blujus failed to block the pass across and Blunden couldn't catch up to the goal scorer.

    First Period
    SYR Koekkoek, (2) (Kunyk, Gourde), 7:58
    RCH Leduc, (2) (Varone), 16:41

    Second Period
    RCH Reid, (5) , 7:42
    RCH Dalpe, (6) (Schaller, Bagnall), 11:34 (SH)

    Third Period
    RCH Irwin, (4) (Ellis), 18:40 (EN)

    Syracuse was 0-for-8 on the power play. Unlike Tampa Bay, though, which has plenty of finishers, I think the Crunch suffer from having only 1 or 2 pure finishers like Marchessault. As a consequence, they should be playing more of a shot/rebound style of basic PP, but that's not what they seemed interested in doing today.

    The beasts of the Northeast square off.

    SPR-3 (OT)

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 3 goals on 33 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    SPR Adam, (10) (Labrie, Tyrell), 0:39
    SYR Namestnikov, (6) (Mormina, Smith), 14:48

    Second Period
    SYR Angelidis, (12) (Gourde, Marchessault), 17:32
    SPR Adam, (11) (Sifers, St. Denis), 18:17

    Third Period

    SPR Urban, (2) (Madaisky, Adam), 3:10 (PP)

    Mike Angelidis was the game's third star.

    Springfield now holds a 2 point lead on Syracuse in the Northeast Division after the victory. Syracuse does, however, hold a game in hand on the Falcons.

    By the time the Syracuse Crunch scored its first goal, the hole was simply too deep to climb out of.

    The Crunch scored twice in the final 11:15 but an empty-netter sealed the win for the Sharks, as Worcester snapped Syracuse's 10-game winning streak with a 4-2 win at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "We didn't come out the way we wanted," said Crunch forward Yanni Gourde. "We started late in the third period playing our way, and we can't do that against any team in this league."
