    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.”

    For Adam Erne, it was just another game.

    After missing six weeks with an injury, the Crunch rookie forward registered a goal and an assist in his return to lead Syracuse to a 5-1 win over the Binghamton Senators at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “Obviously, you get some butterflies before the game, but it’s just another game,” Erne said. “You want to prove yourself and get goals. The goal is to play in the NHL, and you have to prove yourself to do that. It can’t be a one time thing, it’s something you have to bring every night.”

    Crunch head coach Rob Zettler believed pairing Erne with veterans Mike Angelidis and Jeff Tambellini gave the line a whole new dimension.

    “He was maybe the best player on the ice tonight,” Zettler said. “He was really good. He skated really well. He looked really fast out there and was making plays.”

    Erne's baaaaaaaaaaaack!

    BNG-1
    SYR-5

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 1 goal on 29 shots for the victory, further pumping up his season save percentage to .938. Stylish.

    First Period
    SYR Erne, (1) (Angelidis, Walcott), 8:02
    SYR Angelidis, (2) (Tambellini, Erne), 12:31

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    SYR Taormina, (5) (DeAngelo, Peca), 1:06 (PP)
    SYR Tambellini, (7) (Angelidis, Erne), 8:22
    BNG Puempel, (5) (Dzingel, Carlisle), 11:49
    SYR Witkowski, (1) (Peca), 19:30

    Adam Erne, Gudlevskis, and Mike Angelidis were the game's three stars.

    Top flight prospect played his first game in over a month returning from injury, and immediately dropped points in triplicate, including his first goal of the season 8:02 into the game. So it took him less than a half a period to knock of the rust, I guess. Erne's performance coupled with a pair of assists by Matthew Peca are a welcome sign for a Crunch team that needs their top rookie pro forwards to chip in like core players if they're going to reach their ceiling this year as a club.

    The Crunch have a ton of games in hand relative to most of the teams in the Eastern Conference, so a winning streak moving forward could be a chance to climb very quickly in the standings.

    Miserable weekend ends on a hopeful note.

    SYR-4
    BRI-0

    Kristers Gudlevskis stopped all 31 shots he faced for the shutout victory. His 2.01 GAA and .935 sv% thus far this season marks a clear progression from the previous two seasons when he muddled around the .900 sv% mark.

    First Period
    SYR Blunden, (4) (Peca, Nesterov), 4:05

    Second Period
    SYR Paradis, (4) (Mormina, Richard), 15:41
    SYR Blunden, (5) (Nesterov, DeAngelo), 18:51 (PP)

    Third Period
    SYR Gourde, (4) (Richard, Paradis), 18:31 (EN)

    Mike Blunden, Gudlevskis, and Nikita Nesterov were the game's three stars.

    Syracuse searched for a spark.

    After being held to one shot on goal in the first period, Crunch captain Mike Angelidis dropped the gloves for a spirited bout in the second and head coach Rob Zettler switched around the lines for the third. Syracuse scored once in the final frame, but ultimately fell to the Toronto Marlies, 3-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “The start killed us,” Zettler said. “They were the better team for two periods, and we didn’t decide to play hockey until the third period when it was too late.”

    Crunch crushed by high-powered Marlies.

    SYR-1
    TOR-3

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 30 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    TOR Leivo, (6) (Brennan, Arcobello), 6:24 (PP)

    Second Period
    TOR Carrick, (3) (Brennan, Frattin), 4:40
    TOR Gauthier, (2) (Campbell, Clune), 7:01

    Third Period
    SYR McGinn, (3) (DeAngelo), 4:11 (PP)

    Tye McGinn was the game's third star.

    Toronto gave several of their stars the day off, including Bolt Prospects Alumni Richard Panik, and the Marlies still hardly looked threatened by Syracuse over the course of the game. Just two teams in a completely different area code in terms of depth.

    Crunch battle back from 2 goal deficit to salvage a point.

    SYR-3
    RCH-4 (OT)

    Adam Wilcox allowed 4 goals on 29 shots for the loss. Not a great stat line, but the defense in front of him was a bit tardy tonight.

    First Period
    RCH Ruhwedel, (1) (Donovan, O'Reilly), 5:26 (PP)
    RCH Rodrigues, (1) (Akeson, Dupuy), 9:32
    SYR Taormina, (4) (Paradis, Dotchin), 16:04

    Second Period
    RCH Carrier, (3) (Bailey, O'Reilly), 17:24

    Third Period
    SYR Angelidis, (1) (Blunden), 9:18
    SYR Tambellini, (6) (McGinn, Taormina), 19:11

    Overtime
    RCH Dupuy, (2) , 1:49

    Jeff Tambellini was the game's third star.

    The Crunch's veterans pulled the sled tonight with Mike Angelidis keying the comeback by finally getting the monkey off his back with his first goal of the campaign. It's much needed with Marchessault up top in Tampa Bay.
