    The Syracuse Crunch gave Andei Vasilevskiy little room for error.

    Jerome Samson put the Crunch ahead 17 minutes into the game and the score remained the same until the final minute, when Vladislav Namestnikov sealed the win with an empty-netter. Vasilevskiy finished with 34 saves for his first American Hockey League shutout in a 2-0 win over the Rochester Americans at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "Very hard game, because if you make a mistake, it's a tie game and it's very hard," Vasilevskiy said.

    Vladislav Namestnikov made an impact on his first shift.

    The Crunch forward, sent to Syracuse to get more ice time earlier this week, chipped in a rebound 59 seconds into the game and was a catalyst in the Crunch getting out to a five-goal lead in the first period. But Syracuse saw its lead dwindle to one early in the third and barely hung on to top the Hartford Wolf Pack, 6-5, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "We actually came out great, kind of against what we've done all year," said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. "We came out great and finished flat."

    Crunch outlast Wolf Pack.


    Kristers Gudlevskis got the "W" despite allowing 5 goals on 35 shots.

    First Period
    SYR Namestnikov, (1) (Marchessault, Nesterov), 0:59 (PP)
    SYR Angelidis, (7) (Smith, Gourde), 3:26
    SYR Vermin, (6) (Nesterov, Namestnikov), 3:44
    SYR Dotchin, (1) (Blujus, Richard), 13:34 (PP)
    SYR Gourde, (10) (Richard, Paradis), 16:34

    Second Period
    HFD Haggerty, (5) (Lindberg, R. Bourque), 1:55 (PP)
    HFD Nehring, (1) (Nicholls, Jackson), 3:49
    HFD Malone, (1) (R. Bourque, Mueller), 9:37

    Third Period
    HFD Kristo, (6) (C. Bourque, Kostka), 4:02 (PP)
    SYR Angelidis, (8) (Namestnikov, Marchessault), 6:11 (PP)
    HFD C. Bourque, (8) (Bodie, Kristo), 7:50 (PP)

    Mike Angelidis, Vladislav Namestnikov, and Yanni Gourde were the game's three stars.

    There's simply no excuse to almost squander a 5 goal lead, and while Syracuse continues to scores goals at an accelerated clip they continue to struggle keeping it out of their own net.

    Vasya rising up.


    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 29 shots for the victory. That's 2 quality starts out of his last 3, including the command performance in the Frozen Dome game. Now, if I'm Zettler, I declare Vasilevskiy the hot hand and see if I can ride him a little while. Time to see if that talent can translate to more results. Even without superior centermen, I feel Syracuse should score plenty of goals. They'll go as far as the goaltending takes them, though.

    First Period
    SYR Paradis, (6) (Gourde, Mormina), 6:06

    Second Period
    HER Galiev, (3) (Carrick, Kennedy), 16:41 (PP)

    Third Period
    SYR Kunyk, (3) (Vermin), 1:58
    SYR Kunyk, (4) (Mormina), 14:51 (PP)
    SYR Marchessault, (8) (Gourde), 19:04

    Cody Kunyk, Philippe Paradis, and Vasilevskiy were the game's three stars. Kunyk pots the GWG and the insurance goal in a good night's work. Paradis has 5 goals and 6 points in 3 games this week, essentially daring Bolt Prospects not to select him Player of the Week. With 2 helpers, Yanni Gourde now has 9 goals and 18 points in 13 November contests. He and Jonathan Marchessault are now tied for 8th in the AHL in scoring (at the moment of this posting) with several others, 4 points back of the leader.

    A night that would otherwise be memorable for all the right reasons was soured for Philippe Paradis.

    The Syracuse forward netted a natural hat trick in less than a five minute span to turn a two-goal deficit into a Crunch lead late in the first period. But the Binghamton Senators rallied for four goals in the third to top Syracuse, 6-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "It doesn't matter how many goals you score, you just need the two points at the end of the day," Paradis said. "We didn't do it."

    Bingo crushes Crunch in Third Period fiasco.


    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 5 goals on 32 shots for the victory. At some point, patience wears thin waiting for what should be one of the better goaltending tandems in the AHL to play like it.

    First Period
    BNG Schneider, (5) (Johnson, Guptill), 8:16
    BNG Schneider, (6) (Pageau, Johnson), 10:41
    SYR Paradis, (3) (Gourde, Richard), 11:10
    SYR Paradis, (4) (Dotchin, Richard), 13:29
    SYR Paradis, (5) , 15:52 (SH/PS)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    BNG Prince, (7) , 1:50
    BNG Prince, (8) (D. Grant), 8:00 (PP)
    BNG D. Grant, (6) (Prince, A. Grant), 17:10
    BNG Dziurzynski, (1) (McCormick), 19:14 (EN)

    Philippe Paradis was the game's first star and had a natural hat trick. Wasted.

    Oh Vasya...


    After his Frozen Dome brilliance, Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 5 goals on 35 shots for the loss. Still waiting for that one cathartic moment when it all clicks for the big Russian.

    First Period

    Second Period
    SYR Gourde, (9) (Paradis), 1:23
    UTI DeFazio, (8) (Archibald), 5:37
    UTI Archibald, (2) (DeFazio, Acton), 11:27
    UTI Grenier, (6) (Jensen, Biega), 15:42 (PP)
    SYR Paradis, (2) (Dotchin, Gourde), 16:09
    UTI Kenins, (4) (Tommernes, Shinkaruk), 18:34 (PP)

    Third Period
    SYR Marchessault, (7) (Nesterov), 11:29 (PP)
    SYR Richard, (4) (Gourde, Cote), 12:44
    UTI Archibald, (3) (Jensen, Acton), 15:48

    Unfortunately, after climbing all the way back into the 4-4 tie, the team promptly coughed up the lead goal to Utica, erasing any hope at moral victories. At least Yanni Gourde, Tanner Richard, and Philippe Paradis continue to raise holy hell for the Crunch. That trio has 33 points in 11 games in the month of November. Kind of a Modin/Richards/St. Louis-esque trio there in how the line works.

    Despite knowing there would be a record-breaking crowd in attendance, the Syracuse Crunch focused on the task at hand.

    The Crunch battled back from an early deficit, took the lead in the second period and held on in the third, as Syracuse topped the Utica Comets, 2-1, in front of 30,715 people at the Frozen Dome Classic Saturday. The total sets a new United States professional hockey attendance record, which was previously held by the Lightning.

    "In the beginning, when we were standing on the goal line, you look around and it's really impressive to see all those people in that building," said Crunch forward Joel Vermin. "After one or two shifts, it's a game and you've got to execute."

    Vasilevskiy shines on the big stage in the Frozen Dome.


    Andrei Vasilevskiy had his finest start of the year, turning aside 26 of 27 shots for the victory. He made big saves at big moments to preserve the margin of victory for the Crunch, and he did it in front of 30,000+ people. The young man's got some swagger, no doubt. I could see his season taking off like a rocket ship from here on out.

    First Period
    UTI Friesen, (2) (Kenins, Jensen), 3:12
    SYR Vermin, (5) (Richard), 16:00

    Second Period
    SYR Gourde, (8) (Marchessault, Nesterov), 0:49

    Third Period

    Vasilevskiy, Yanni Gourde, and Tanner Richard were the game's three stars.

    Utica is a fine club, entering the night atop the Western Conference. This was a measuring stick game coming off of a loss that snapped an 8 game point streak for the Crunch. The win will put Syracuse back into a tie for the top spot in their division and continues to reinforce that this Syracuse team is going to be a real player in the AHL hunt this season.

    Attendance at tonight's game at the Carrier Dome was 30,715, which breaks the all-time indoor record set by the crowd in Tampa Bay for Game Six of the Lightning and Flyers series of 28,138 way back in 1996 (I was there) at Thunderdome in St. Petersburg.

    All good things...


    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 4 goals on 34 shots for the loss.

    First Period
    ADK Wolf, (3) (Vause, Wotherspoon), 0:13

    Second Period
    SYR Witkowski, (1) (Richard, Kunyk), 17:42
    ADK Vause, (1) (Poirier, Wolf), 19:58

    Third Period
    ADK Reid, (2) (Cundari), 11:56 (PP)
    ADK Poirier, (4) (Cundari, Reid), 16:56 (PP)

    Syracuse's points streak is snapped at 8 games. Hard to believe Adirondack could withstand deployment of the secret weapon, Luke Witkowski, but the goal allowed with 2 seconds left in the Second Period ended up being a killer. Goals early and late in periods...

    Yanni Gourde's point streak was also snapped at 6 games.
