Admirals Game Results

    Wall-cox rises up.

    HER-2
    SYR-3 (OT)

    Adam Wilcox allowed 2 goals on 19 shots for the win. That's still not a warm and fuzzy stat line in terms of save percentage, but Wilcox has needed a performance like this since getting the #1 job in full with Gudlevskis being recalled. He made a lot of key situational saves tonight to make a victory possible.

    First Period
    16:17 SYR Brodeur (1), (Condra, Conacher)(SH)
    16:43 SYR Gourde (9), (unassisted)(SH)
    18:47 HER Mitchell (4), (Lewington, Stephenson)

    Second Period
    1:20 HER Thomas (14), (Djoos, Bourque)(PP)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Overtime
    3:01 SYR Gourde (10), (Witkowski, Taormina)

    Yanni Gourde and Erik Condra were the game's first and second stars. Luke Witkowski was hosed given that feathery soft give-and-go he worked to make Gourde's game winner happen.

    Syracuse, at least in terms of overall balance of play, seemed to be in a more dominant position tonight with the return of a lot of key regulars like Conacher, Condra, and Richard from Tampa Bay now that they've had some time to get re-acclimated. The win moves Syracuse out to a 2 point lead in the North Division, and just as importantly this was a quality victory against a good Hershey team from the other side of the conference where the teams seem a little stronger, on paper, so far this year.

    Third Period
    10:57 RCH Bailey (12), (Kennedy)
    15:52 RCH Schneider (11), (Kennedy)

    Dominik Masin scored his first pro goal in the match. Other than that, it was a clunker.

    Adam Erne had a hand in every Syracuse goal, but the Crunch came up short.

    The Syracuse forward netted a pair of goals and assists for his first four-point night as a pro, but the depleted Crunch fell to the Hartford Wolf Pack, 5-4, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday.

    Three of the Crunch’s six leading scorers are on recall to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    “Obviously, we want to win hockey games regardless of the lineup,” Erne said. “I don’t think that’s really an excuse for us. I think we need to find a way to win these games.”

    Frantic Syracuse comeback falls just short.

    HFD-5
    SYR-4

    Adam Wilcox allowed 5 goals on 24 shots for the loss. With Ben Bishop potentially injured for the long term and Gudlevskis up in Tampa Bay, Syracuse's crease belongs to Wilcox now. We'll see how he handles the challenge.

    First Period
    16:08 SYR Erne (7), (Peca)
    19:42 HFD Graves (4), (Joly, Jensen)

    Second Period
    2:58 HFD Tambellini (5), (Fontaine, Kampfer)(PP)
    6:21 HFD Bodie (6), (Oksanen, McPherson)
    7:48 SYR Hart (3), (Erne)
    17:28 HFD Oksanen (2), (Bodie, McRae)

    Third Period
    1:01 SYR Erne (8), (Taormina)
    2:11 HFD Fontaine (4), (Nieves)
    4:00 SYR Walcott (1), (Gourde, Erne)

    Adam Erne and Brian Hart were the game's first and third stars. Erne's 4 point night moves him to 5 goals and 10 points in 9 games in the month of December. An afterthought for much of the past few seasons, the former 2nd round pick Hart now has 3 goals and 4 points in the past 5 games. Two young power forwards starting to make a little progress, at least on the scoresheet, is a positive thing.

    Syracuse's North Division lead has now shrunk to 2 points, although the Crunch still hold a couple of games in hand on Albany.

    Saturday night's alright for fighting.

    SYR-5
    BRI-3

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 1 goal on 13 shots before getting booted from the contest for fighting. Adam Wilcox allowed 2 goals on 10 shots the rest of the way in cleanup duty to claim the rare bird that is the backdoor win.

    First Period
    14:01 SYR Hart (2), (Thomas, Peca)(PP)
    14:47 SYR Gourde (8), (Brodeur, Bournival)

    14:05 BRI Pulock (1), (Toews, Kearns)
    17:32 BRI Mayfield (2), (Kearns, St. Denis)
    19:56 SYR Halmo (7), (Taormina, Gourde)

    Third Period
    5:53 SYR Comrie (2), (Taormina, Peca)(PP)

    Matt Taormina and Matthew Peca were the game's first and second stars.

    Syracuse scorched their way to a 3-0 lead in the First Period and looked completely in control until 9:25 of the Second Period when Stephen Gionta scored Bridgeport's first goal and the following insanity broke loose:

    And a good time was had by all. Syracuse blew the 3 goal lead but were able to eventually regain the winning edge with a late Second Period marker by Halmo.

    Syracuse is now 4 points clear of the rest of the North Division in first place and 6 points back of the conference lead with games in hand.

    Tanner Richard moved left and right as he slowly approached the net, and then quickly flicked a backhander that beat Michael Garteig’s glove.

    The goal — followed by a save by Kristers Gudlevskis at the other end — sealed a 4-3 shootout win for the Syracuse Crunch over the Utica Comets at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday. The Crunch captured all six points on the three-game homestand, including two wins against divisional opponents.

    “It’s a very good week for us, obviously,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “Tonight we battled hard. It was our fifth game in eight days with some previous travel in St. John’s, so we had to battle hard last night and battle hard again against a very competitive Utica team. My hat’s off to our players.”

    Syracuse, for the moment, moves 6 points clear of second place atop the North Division. They're starting to make up some ground on Lehigh Valley for tops in the conference if they can stay on track.

    The Syracuse Crunch found a way to rally late.

    After erasing a pair of one-goal deficits, the Crunch pulled ahead late in the third period on a goal by Yanni Gourde, as Syracuse topped the Albany Devils, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “It shows we’ve got some confidence and we’ve got some confidence in this room,” Crunch assistant captain Erik Condra said. “No matter if we’re up a couple or down a couple, we’re going to work the same way. The puck was bouncing a lot out there, especially in the second … in the third we settled it down and played a more simple game. We know what we’ve got in the room. We’ve been rolling a little bit, and when you’re rolling like that you don’t want it to stop.”
