Admirals Game Results

    Syracuse Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx liked the result, but not the effort.

    The Crunch picked up a 4-1 win over the Binghamton Senators at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday, but Groulx believed they could have played better.

    Syracuse remains one point behind Toronto for first place in the North Division with one game remaining in the regular season.

    “Very average,” Groulx said of his team’s performance. “I thought we were a one effort hockey club tonight.”

    “We’ve got to be a second effort hockey club in the three zones,” Groulx added. “That was not the case tonight.”

    Crunchning Death Star destroys Bingo.


    Mike McKenna allowed 1 goal on 29 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    19:08 SYR Bournival (9), (Peca, Thomas)

    Second Period
    9:26 SYR Condra (15), (Conacher, Taormina)(PP)
    11:09 SYR Peca (12), (Taormina, Condra)(PP)
    13:01 BNG Gagne (2), (McCormick, Flanagan)(PP)

    Third Period
    18:17 SYR Howden (2), (McGinn, Vermin)(EN)

    Matthew Peca, Erik Condra, and Slater Koekkoek were the game's three stars.

    With 1 game to go on each team's schedule, Syracuse remains 1 point back of Toronto for the North Division crown. Toronto holds the ROW tiebreaker, so Toronto will have to lose their final contest in regulation for the Crunch to pull out the title. Syracuse closes out tomorrow night at home against Utica. Toronto is in St. John's to play the IceCaps tomorrow night. Interesting to note the IceCaps and Comets are both battling for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

    "Now witness the firepower of this fully ARMED and OPERATIONAL battle station!"


    Mike McKenna allowed 2 goals on 25 shots for the victory. Sweet, sweet goal support. Let it wash all over you.

    First Period
    1:20 SYR Condra (14), (McGinn, Peca)
    14:30 UTI Carcone (4), (Rendulic, Billins)

    Second Period
    8:31 SYR Taormina (15), (Gourde, Conacher)
    16:33 UTI Cassels (6), (Hamilton, Pedan)

    Third Period
    2:03 SYR McGinn (10), (Peca, Howden)(PP)
    6:22 SYR Bournival (8), (Vermin, Brodeur)
    9:07 SYR Conacher (17), (Erne, Gourde)
    15:36 SYR Erne (13), (Conacher)(EN)
    18:25 SYR Dotchin (4), (Taormina, McKenna)(PP)

    Tye McGinn, Cory Conacher, and Yanni Gourde were the game's three stars.

    Syracuse scored 5 unanswered goals in the Third Period, keyed in part by the return to Syracuse of several players who finished the regular season with Tampa Bay. They contributed 4 goals and 6 assists, by my count, to Syracuse's winning effort tonight.

    Syracuse pulls back to within 1 point of Toronto for the North Division title with both teams having just 2 regular season games left to go.

    In just his second pro grame, Brett Howden was focused on doing what he was told.

    Drive to the net with his stick down.

    Howden did just that and Tanner Richard found him on the back door with 3:22 remaining in regulation and the 19-year-old recorded his first pro goal, as the Syracuse Crunch topped the Albany Devils, 3-2, and moved closer to clinching a postseason berth at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “He’s been telling me these last two games to just go to the net with my stick on the ice,” Howden said of Richard. “He’s been trying real hard to feed it to me, and he found the seam there.”

    Syracuse finally gets on the right side of a key divisional tilt.


    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the victory.

    First Period

    Second Period
    5:20 ALB Auvitu (5), (Quenneville, Camper)(PP)
    10:51 SYR Richard (14), (Kurtz)(SH)

Syracuse finishes with Utica on Wednesday, Binghamton on Friday, and the regular season finale against Utica, again, on Saturday. Utica is in a street fight with two other teams for two playoff spots while Binghamton is out of the playoff race.

    Crunch choke in ongoing listless crawl to the finish line.

    BNG-4 (OT)

    Mike McKenna allowed 4 goals on 26 shots for the loss. My goodness was he awful tonight.

    First Period
    9:28 BNG Varone (15), (Akeson, Blunden)
    16:22 SYR McGinn (8), (Richard, Blujus)

    Second Period
    14:57 SYR Ikonen (5), (McGinn, Thomas)

    Third Period
    9:22 SYR McGinn (9), (Condra)(PP)
    15:45 BNG Akeson (20), (Varone, Rumble)
    15:54 BNG Rodewald (18), (unassisted)

    1:01 BNG Paul (15), (Rumble, McCormick)

    Tye McGinn was the game's second star.

    At this time of year, if you get to under 6 minutes left in a game with a 2 goal lead, that's got to get you 2 points in the standings. Having failed to accomplish that, the Crunch still linger 3 points back of Toronto for the lead in the North Division. Syracuse will make the postseason, but a 3-4-1-2 record in their last 10 points to the probability they won't stick around long unless they find some consistency and some ability to make some situational plays in a hurry.

    Organization-wide limp to the finish line continues.


    Mike McKenna allowed 3 goals on 32 shots for the loss. Just a little goal support, please.

    First Period
    17:40 ALB Lappin (10), (Quenneville, MacDonald)(PP)

    Second Period
    2:12 ALB Lappin (11), (unassisted)(SH)
    9:14 ALB Gibbons (14), (Lappin)(SH)

    Third Period

    Yet another critical divisional loss for the Crunch puts them 4 points back of Toronto for the top spot in the North Division. The big tell is Syracuse's -6 goal differential for the year, which speaks to the fact they might not be quite the club their 10 games over .500 mark suggests they are.

    There was a serious case of deja vu at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    With the score tied after 65 minutes, the Crunch and Marlies went to a shootout. Syracuse’s shootout struggles continued, as Toronto earned a 3-2 win for a second straight night.

    The Crunch came into the weekend tied for first place in the North Division, but the Marlies now lead by two points.

    “Two teams that are giving it all on the ice, obviously,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “Last night they took the lead 2-0 and we came back. Tonight we took a 2-0 lead. They came back and they found a way twice in the shootout. It’s disappointing, but I’m very proud of the two hard fought battles we gave them this weekend.”

    Crunch fail to protect two goal lead in critical divisional tilt.

    SYR-2 (SO)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 23 shots, stopped a PS in OT, but allowed 2 of 5 to convert in the Shootout for the loss.

    First Period
    5:06 SYR Lynch (5), (McGinn)

    Second Period
    6:58 SYR Richard (13), (McGinn, Condra)
    12:05 TOR Leipsic (15), (Moore, Findlay)(PP)

    Third Period
    6:07 TOR Gauthier (3), (Sislo, Johnsson)


    TOR- Griffith, Timashov
    SYR- Lynch

    Kevin Lynch and Michael Bournival were the game's second and third stars.

    Two identical, frustrating results in a row against the Marlies have put the Crunch down 1 point to Toronto in the race for the North Division crown. They've got the big ROW tiebreaker advantage, so the Crunch will need to beat them clean to get the title.

    The Syracuse Crunch rallied in the second period, but their shootout struggles continued in a battle of the top teams in the North Division.

    The Crunch got a pair of goals from unlikely sources to tie the score in the middle frame but couldn’t find the game-winner in the third period, overtime or shootout, as Syracuse fell to Toronto, 3-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday. The Crunch have 80 points, one point behind the Marlies.

    “I think they came out strong again,” Crunch captain Erik Condra said. “We pushed back and came back on a pretty good team and got a point out of it.”
