    From Latvia with love.

    RCH-0
    SYR-1

    Kristers Gudlevskis stopped all 27 shots he faced for his second shutout of the season. That's a slump buster, right there. Well done.

    First Period
    SYR Connolly, (2) (Korobov, Witkowski), 14:18

    Second Period

    Third Period

    Gudlevskis and Brett Connolly were the game's first and second stars. In the last 7 games, Connolly has 2 goals and 5 points as he continues to come out of his early season funk. It's a good thing.

    Syracuse is 3 points out of the #8 spot in the Eastern Conference with a game in hand on Norfolk after the Admirals' loss to Springfield tonight. Syracuse faces Hershey on Wednesday as they try to maintain contact for a playoff spot while the organization gets healthy and they have the opportunity to reload. Every win right now is a little life line.

    SYR Devos, (1) (Korobov), 3:37

    I wouldn't expect this to go on too much longer before some roster changes are made to try to snap Syracuse out of this funk.

    There's not much to feel positive about from this contest. Syracuse was dominated on the shot board 47-15 and dominated on the scoreboard 6-2. The two teams square off again tomorrow when the Crunch will have a chance at redemption. As an old hockey hand once told me, it's really hard to paste the same team two nights in a row.

    Jesse Blacker broke a tie with less than nine minutes remaining, lifting the Norfolk Admirals over the Syracuse Crunch for a second-straight night, 2-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    The Crunch, who fell in the shootout to the Admirals Friday, spent most of the game rotating through five defensemen, after Jean-Philippe Cote was ejected for an illegal hit to the head at the 11:41 mark of the first period.

    "Cote is a valuable guy," said Syracuse coach Rob Zettler. "One, just having him out of the lineup period is just tough. But playing five D is tough too, especially in back-to-back games."

    Syracuse loses a tight one.

    NOR-2
    SYR-1

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 24 shots for the loss. It's his first AHL loss and it comes in his 7th AHL decision.

    First Period
    NOR Rakell, (8) (Blacker, Gagne), 15:14 (PP)

    Second Period
    SYR Neilson, (1) (Langelier-Parent, Korobov), 4:47

    Third Period
    NOR Blacker, (4) (Friberg, Yonkman), 11:48

    Eric Neilson was the game's second star.

    There are no moral victories in professional sports, but it's interesting to note that as depleted as Syracuse is they played pretty much even with a decent Norfolk team. That speaks to the character and coaching of the team, in my opinion. Syracuse faces St. John's next on Tuesday.

    The Norfolk Admirals took advantage of a penalty-filled game with a pair of power play goals, as they topped the Syracuse Crunch in a shootout, 4-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    The Admirals began their rally in the second period amidst multiple post-whistle altercations, five misconducts and a combined 106 penalty minutes.

    "Having those guys in the box for 10 minutes really hurt us at the end of the second and beginning of the third," said Syracuse coach Rob Zettler. "It hurt our energy. They are some of our best players sitting in the box for 10 or 12 minutes, so that hurt."

    Crunch fail to protect an early 3 goal lead.

    Drew Olson was the game's second star.

    It's awesome that, depleted as they are, Syracuse managed to build an early 3 goal lead. That's what it's equally as heartbreaking they couldn't hold on to get the 2 points. Cedric Paquette (Dump Truck!) continued his strong play and now has 2 goals and 5 points in the last 3 games. Brett Connolly also has a modest 3 game point streak now with 1 goal and 3 points over that span. It's fairly shocking that tonight's goal was just the first of Connolly's AHL season, but you hope that opens the flood gates for him moving forward. He did wash down his regulation goal with a conversion on his shootout attempt, so that's a positive sign, too.

    These two teams square off again tomorrow. As it stands, Syracuse is 1 point behind Norfolk for the 8th and final playoff position in the Eastern Conference.

    Dump Truck delivers (again).

    SYR-1
    ADK-0

    Cedrick Desjardins stopped all 28 shots he faced for the shutout victory. Goaltending will be extra important if Syracuse is going to ride out this stretch at less than full strength, and Desjardins gave them that goaltending tonight.

    Desjardins and Cedric Paquette were the game's first and second stars. Paquette (Dump Truck!) had the game winning goal for the second straight game. Coming out of quite the scoring slumber, Brett Connolly also had an assist for the second straight game. That's a welcome sign from last year's 2nd Team AHL All-Star.

    SYR Gauthier, (3) (Connolly), 19:05 (EN)

    Cedric Paquette (Dump Truck!) and Ray Kaunisto were the game's first and third stars.

    I don't know what it is about the IceCaps, but the Lightning organization could stick cardboard cutouts in jerseys and still beat them. SyraNo has just had their number - big time - and tonight was a win Syracuse really needed to right the ship even though, when you look up and down the roster, it's very hard to find familiar names.

    Syracuse faces Adirondack tomorrow as they attempt to put a little unlikely streak together here.

    The Syracuse Crunch can finally breathe a sigh of relief.

    Cedric Paquette scored with less than five minutes remaining in regulation to lift Syracuse past the St. John's IceCaps, 4-2, snapping the Crunch's five-game losing streak at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "I told them 'We are what we are, you game it out and play the right way and let the chips fall, and the result will take care of itself,'" said Crunch coach Rob Zettler.
