    Gunned down in cold blood by ex-Bolt Prospect Cody Kunyk. My my.

    Syracuse managed just 20 shots on goal in the game. That simply won't get it done.

    After 50-plus scoreless minutes, the momentum swung firmly away from the Syracuse Crunch.

    The Crunch allowed a pair of goals 16 seconds apart and the Comets tacked on two more goals before the final horn, as Syracuse was blanked by Utica, 4-0, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I thought it was a hard fought battle for two periods — I should say 50 minutes — and then they scored that goal and that quick goal right after,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “It seemed to break our legs. That’s what it is. I thought we had chances earlier in the game. We had five shots from the slot, but we missed the net five times. (We) can’t score.”

    Out of sync Crunch drop squeaker to Senators.

    BNG-4
    SYR-2

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 22 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    2:40 BNG Krushelnyski (3), (Varone, Gagne)

    17:07 SYR Gourde (14), (Conacher, Morin)
    19:18 BNG McCormick (11), (Varone)(EN)

    Jeremy Morin was the game's third star.

    Syracuse actually outshot Binghamton 36-23 in the contest, but hockey is a frustrating sport when you have to work so much harder than your opponent to get goals. Put simply, if you allow two shorthanded goals in a game, you probably deserve to lose.

    Syracuse remains in a tie with Albany atop the North Division after burning a game in hand.

    For Syracuse Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx, it was a little bit of everything going wrong.

    The Crunch struggled to finish on their offensive chances — including a pair of breakaways in the first period — and allowed two shorthanded goals from the Senators, as Syracuse fell to Binghamton, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “I thought it was one of those nights. Nothing worked for us tonight,” Groulx said. “Our centermen got killed in the faceoff circle. Our power play didn’t do the job. Our defensemen tonight struggled to move the puck. We didn’t have much speed.”

    The OT loss creates a tie in points atop the North Division with Syracuse and Albany each sitting at 42 points. Syracuse still holds 2 games in hand, however.

    Even with multiple players making their Crunch season debut, Syracuse found a way to pull out the win.

    The Crunch, whose lineup included four players on professional tryout agreements and a defenseman on one of the top forward lines, had four different players score in a 4-1 victory over the AHL-leading Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pengiuns at the Onondaga County War Memorial Monday.

    “Whoever is in the lineup, we just have to play very hard,” Syracuse alternate captain Yanni Gourde said. “We know these guys are coming to play. They’re on a PTO and trying out for our team, so we know they’re coming to play and they did a good job today.”

    Crunch make a statement against the league's best.

    WBS-1
    SYR-4

    Adam Wilcox allowed 1 goal on 32 shots for the victory. High quality victory for Wilcox after leaving the game against Toronto early with a minor injury.

    First Period
    10:57 SYR Gourde (12), (Walcott)
    14:54 SYR Walcott (2), (Taormina, Pacan)(PP)

    Second Period
    6:42 SYR Koekkoek (1), (Pacan)
    14:27 WBS Rowney (8), (Simon, Prow)

    Third Period
    17:05 SYR Peca (6), (Richard, Brodeur)(EN)

    Daniel Walcott, Wilcox, and Mathieu Brodeur were the game's three stars. A defenseman by trade, necessity has again moved Walcott to forward for the present and he has shown some ability in the role. Perhaps a discussion needs to take place with young Mr. Walcott that begins with the question, "Have you ever heard of Ben Clymer?"

    Syracuse regains the top spot in the North Division with the victory, 1 point clear of Albany with 2 games in hand on the Devils.

    The Syracuse Crunch went toe-to-toe with the top team in the AHL, but came up just short.

    The Crunch caught a couple bad breaks and allowed three Penguins goals in the third period, as Syracuse fell to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, 3-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I’m very happy about the way we played — we were a second-effort hockey club today, we competed hard, we did many good things — but I thought we lost our cool and I thought we ended up losing the game because of that,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said.

    Crunch drop heartbreaker against the class of the league.

    WBS-3
    SYR-1

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 22 shots for the hard luck loss.

    First Period
    15:34 SYR Dotchin (3), (Richard, Conacher)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    5:33 WBS Rowney (7), (Simon, Gaunce)
    8:37 WBS Simon (5), (Guentzel, Pouliot)
    19:26 WBS Guentzel (21), (Ruhwedel, Kostopoulos)(PP)(EN)

    Jake Dotchin was the game's second star.

    Syracuse slips 1 point behind Albany in the North Division with 3 games in hand on the Devils. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton had a gaudy .770 winning percentage coming into the contest, so it bodes well that the Crunch could play them as even as they did.

    The Syracuse Crunch seized the momentum late in the second period.

    The Crunch tied the score with 20 seconds left in the middle period, added the go-ahead goal 1:10 into the third and held on for a 5-4 win against the Toronto Marlies at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “I’m very happy with the way we bounced back,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “That game reminded me of the first game here. The momentum was shifting left and right. They have a good team, and we had to grind it out.”
