    First Period
    5:33 SYR Thomas (2), (Vermin, Koekkoek)

    A wise old hockey man once told me how incredibly difficult it is to beat a team on back-to-back days if you humiliate them in the first game. Pride kicks in. That's about what happened today.

    Syracuse moved 1 point back of Albany for the top spot in the North Division with 2 games in hand on the Devils.

    Crunch finds the antidote to rid themselves of UTI.

    SYR-3
    UTI-2

    Kristers Gudlevskis put on a show, turning aside 39 of 41 shots for the win, therby helping Syracuse overcome a 41-17 shot deficit.

    First Period
    6:54 SYR Erne (11), (Brodeur, Koekkoek)

    13:52 UTI Pedan (3), (Archibald)

    Gudlevskis and Joel Vermin were the game's first and second stars.

    Adam Erne now has goals in each of his two games since returning from injury. You can't help but wonder if his cup of coffee with the Lightning gave him an extra jolt of confidence that's showing up in his play. He's a first round caliber talent if he puts it all together.

    Syracuse moves 1 point up on Albany for the top spot in the North Division with the win.

    There was a big hit, a fight and two goals — and that was just the first 3:34.

    Mike Halmo’s bout and goals by Yanni Gourde and Cameron Darcy got the Crunch out to a fast start against the Americans, as Syracuse defeated Rochester, 5-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I thought we were ready for this game tonight,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “Obviously, Mike Halmo set the tone right away, right off the bat. He’s a competitor and he’s a guy that when he gets involved physically, he’s at his best.”

    The Syracuse Crunch squandered a golden opportunity.

    With the score tied in the final two minutes against the Senators, the Crunch were awarded a power play after a tripping call. Instead of the Crunch completing a comeback, Max McCormick converted on a 2-on-1 shorthanded chance to lift Binghamton to a 3-2 win over Syracuse at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “It’s tough. There’s only 1:40 left and we’re going on the power play to win it, not to lose it,” Crunch alternate captain Matt Taormina said. “It takes a little bit of a bounce over (Matthew) Peca’s stick, and we don’t take guys going back to the net or anything, and that kind of takes the wind out of the sails a little bit.”

    Crunch can't parlay the false hope goal into real hope.

    SYR-2
    TOR-3

    Adam Wilcox allowed 3 goals on 28 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    9:44 TOR Froese (18), (Griffith, Rychel)(PP)

    Second Period
    19:23 TOR Froese (19), (Campbell, Johnsson)

    Third Period
    6:42 TOR Rychel (9), (Dermott, Froese)(PP)
    13:10 SYR Richard (12), (Conacher, Condra)(PP)
    14:52 SYR Comrie (6), (Taormina, Conacher)

    Tanner Richard was the game's third star.

    A three goal deficit in the Third Period of a pro hockey is just a death sentence 99% of the time. You'll see teams get that "false hope goal" to pull within one, but they rarely have enough gas to get the equalizer. It happened again to Syracuse today. They managed to get the false hope goal with a good 5+ minutes to go, but just couldn't find the equalizer. That's why you need timely goaltending and goal scoring to stay within 2 and give yourself a chance, because it's doom if you get down by 3.
