    Despite significantly outshooting the Penguins in the first period, the Crunch entered the first intermission trailing by a goal.

    Syracuse struggled to solve Wilkes-Barre/Scranton goalie Brian Foster, who finished with 30 saves in the Penguins’ 3-0 win over the Crunch at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I thought we had some great opportunities in the first,” said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. “We had (Jeff) Tambellini all alone in front in the second. I thought their goalie played extroidinarily well … He kept them in the game in the first period, and then we made some mistakes in the third that cost us.”

    With many of Syracuse’s leading scorers called up, the power play still found ways to convert.

    The Crunch scored twice with the man-advantage and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 27 saves for the shutout, as Syracuse blanked the Binghamton Senators, 4-0, to snap a five-game losing skid at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “They kept it simple. I know that’s cliche but it’s true,” said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. “They get it to the point and they shoot the thing. The way we’re setting up is good and we’re helping each other on the power play. It’s not necessarily about making the plays, but it’s about getting the recoveries, getting the puck back, and getting the puck in. It seems to be working for us right now.”

    With the help of a video review, Syracuse rallied in the third period but couldn’t complete the comeback.

    The Crunch erased a two-goal deficit in the final 17 minutes of regulation but the Marlies found the game-winner in overtime, as Syracuse fell to Toronto, 4-3, in at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday. The Crunch earned a point, but have dropped five-straight games.

    “It was a good start, but they got the power play goal and we were on our heals for a period, and then we decided to play some hockey and play with energy,” said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler.

    Cameron Darcy and Yanni Gourde were the game's second and third stars.

    Kind of like the Lightning up top, tonight the Crunch sought redemption against a stacked Marlies team that embarrassed them the last time the two teams met. And, like the Lightning, the Crunch proved they can compete against a top flight team. The fact they pulled out a point was the differing story line, and one that Tampa Bay can envy.

    Adam Erne looked to make the best of a bad situation.

    The Syracuse Crunch forward missed six weeks after being injured during a game against Hartford on Oct. 23. Unable to play, Erne used the time to get a new perspective and study the game from afar.

    After returning to the lineup last weekend, Erne is using the knowledge he gained to help him on the ice.

    “I haven’t had too many injuries through hockey,” Erne said. “It’s going to happen. It’s a part of the game. When it does, you just have to make the best of it and work hard, and use it as an opportunity to get faster and even more ready for the remainder of the season.”

    24 hours ago the Crunch were sailing toward a victory against Utica and looked like they were going to have a successful 3 games in 3 nights set over this weekend. Then the bottom fell out in the last 3 minutes against the Comets and they followed up that effort by getting shutout 4-0 by Albany tonight. Opportunities lost...

    The momentum shifted dramatically in the last seven minutes.

    Despite leading most of the game by netting a pair of power play goals, the Syracuse Crunch’s lead slipped away. The Utica Comets scored four times in the final 6:13 to stun the Crunch, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “We sat back on our heels and they came at us,” said Crunch captain Mike Angelidis. “They got pucks in, they were making good plays and cycling, and they had their foot on the gas. We sat back. You can’t do that when you have the lead. You have to keep your foot on the gas.”
