Admirals Game Results

  • 29 weeks 4 days ago

    Syracuse starts to look like Syracuse again.

    SYR-6
    TOR-3

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 35 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    TOR Ashton, (10) , 14:24 (SH)

    Second Period
    TOR Crescenzi, (1) (Bodie, Holzer), 5:03
    SYR Namestnikov, (9) (Connolly, Olson), 6:00
    SYR Tyrell, (4) (Labrie, Mormina), 19:55

    Third Period
    SYR Paquette, (9) (Tyrell), 3:06
    SYR Connolly, (6) , 5:43
    SYR Labrie, (1) (Paquette, Korobov), 6:39
    TOR Duco, (1) (Bodie), 6:49
    SYR Namestnikov, (10) (Taormina, Connolly), 9:46 (PP)

    Vladislav Namestnikov and Brett Connolly were the game's first and second stars. Just what the doctor ordered. Namestnikov, playing in his second game back from the broken hand, was joined in the lineup by Pierre-Cedric Labrie to go along with previous reinforcement like Tyrell and DiSalvatore and tonight it finally started to click for the beleaguered Crunch. Now, perhaps, the road back to the playoffs can begin.

    Syracuse's win squares their record at 14-14-1-3, 5 points back of Adirondack for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot. The Crunch head to Binghamton tomorrow night trying to put together a streak.

    It came down to a couple bad breaks, but the Syracuse Crunch weren't making any excuses.

    The Norfolk Admirals opened the scoring on a shorthanded tally 5:26 into the game, when a shot went off the face of Crunch defenseman Matt Taormina and sprung Admirals forward Emerson Etem on a breakaway. It was one of a many bounces that didn't go in Syracuse's favor.

    The Crunch battled throughout the latter part of the game -- cutting the Admirals lead to one early in the third period -- but ultimately fell, 6-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday. Still, the Syracuse players acknowledged it wasn't luck, it was how they played.

    "You can say unlucky break all you want, but at the end of the day, they shouldn't have had those two shorties at the beginning of the game," said Crunch forward Evan Rankin.

    Crunch comeback falls flat.

    NOR-6
    SYR-3

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 4 goals on 12 shots for the loss before being lifted for Cedrick Desjardins who allowed 2 on 18 shots the rest of the way.

    First Period
    NOR Etem, (6) (Steckel), 5:26 (SH)
    NOR Friberg, (9) (Blacker, Kurtz), 6:32 (SH)

    Second Period

    NOR Etem, (7) , 9:28
    NOR Sauve, (5) (Wagner, Whitney), 18:50 (PP)

    Evan Rankin was the game's second star.

    With Cote and Korobov in Tampa, Syracuse hung Gudlevskis out to dry defensively. They battled back to down 4-3 in the Third before ultimately collapsing in the final frame.

    Brett Connolly rising up.

    SYR-3
    HER-2

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the victory. 10 games into his AHL career he is a very respectable 6-3-1 with 2 shutouts, a 2.38 GAA, and a .916 sv%.

    First Period
    HER LeBlanc, (7) (Wellman, Byers), 11:40
    SYR Connolly, (4) (Paquette), 11:57

    Second Period
    SYR Walker, (3) (Richard, Nesterov), 8:15
    SYR Connolly, (5) (DiSalvatore, Paquette), 15:07

    Third Period
    HER Strachan, (2) (Wellman, Taffe), 13:09

    Connolly and Gudlevskis were the game's first and second stars. Connolly continues to string together his best statistical output of the season working with Cedric Paquette.

    Note that defenseman Dmitry Korobov was recalled to Tampa before the game.

    One good period doesn't pay the bills.

    SYR-1
    WBS-2

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 2 goals on 21 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    WBS Torquato, (1) (Goers, D'Agostino), 9:15 (PP)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    WBS Mikkelson, (3) (Goers, Zlobin), 1:58 (PP)
    SYR Rankin, (9) (Richard, Connolly), 18:17

    Syracuse's 13 shots in the Third Period matched their shot total from the previous two periods combined. It's kind of self explanatory from there. The defensive effort was solid, only allowing 21 shots, but you've got to translate that into shots and chances at the other end.

    Your silver lining comes from Brett Connolly, who has points in 8 of his last 10 games and 3 goals and 6 assists in that span. Bear in mind he's not exactly playing with the same supporting cast he had last season, so this is a promising development.

    Syracuse gets Hershey on Friday.

    The Syracuse Crunch netted a pair of power play goals in the first period, but the Binghamton Senators had the last laugh Friday.

    The Senators scored five unanswered goals in the second and third periods -- including the eventual game-winner on a controversial penalty -- as they topped the Crunch, 5-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial.

    For Syracuse coach Rob Zettler, his team got away from the game plan and what the team did well in the first period.

    "We get up by two, and then we think we're a fancy team instead of grinding it out," Zettler said. "We are what we are. We don't have high-end skill on our team. We have to manufacture goals by working hard, getting it deep and trying to plug away down there."

    Bingo wears out Syracuse.

    BNG-5
    SYR-2

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 4 goals on 35 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    SYR Connolly, (3) (Taormina, Paquette), 2:05 (PP)
    SYR Paquette, (8) (DiSalvatore, Connolly), 17:21 (PP)

    Second Period

    BNG Hoffman, (13) (Da Costa, Wideman), 19:12

    BNG O'Brien, (3) (Schneider, Wideman), 18:19
    BNG Dziurzynski, (2) , 19:47 (EN)

    Cedric Paquette was the game's third star.

    Even with a hat trick, Crunch can't top Bears.

    SYR-3
    HER-4 (SO)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 37 shots before allowing 3 of 11 shooters convert in the penalty shot session for the SO loss.

    First Period
    SYR Rankin, (6) (Sergeev, Angelidis), 0:31
    HER Deschamps, (6) (Segal, Schilling), 5:16
    SYR Rankin, (7) (Angelidis, Paquette), 10:54

    Second Period
    SYR Rankin, (8) (Angelidis, Sergeev), 7:49
    HER Kolomatis, (4) (Deschamps, Segal), 18:01

    Third Period
    HER Segal, (4) (Kolomatis, Schmidt), 16:58

    Overtime
    NO SCORING

    Shootout
    SYR- Rankin, Paquette
    HER- Stoa, Galiev, Mitchell

    Evan Rankin and Mike Angelidis were the game's first and second stars.

    It should be noted the Syracuse lineup did not include Dana Tyrell or Matt Taormina, both of which were returned by Tampa Bay today, nor did it include the freshly signed and recalled J.P. Cote. So, perhaps tonight's result wasn't all that bad under the circumstances.

    After getting pulled from a game earlier this week, Kristers Gudlevskis was eager to step back into the crease.

    The Syracuse Crunch goalie looked at a few pucks hitting the pipes behind him as a positive omen, and finished with a 27-save shutout in a 1-0 win over the Rochester Americans at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday. The victory snaps a four-game losing streak for Syracuse.

    "When you get those pipes, you start to feel comfortable," the Latvian netminder said. "You start to feel like it's your day. It's a lucky moment, it's help."
