    The Syracuse Crunch went toe-to-toe with the top team in the AHL, but came up just short.

    The Crunch caught a couple bad breaks and allowed three Penguins goals in the third period, as Syracuse fell to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, 3-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I’m very happy about the way we played — we were a second-effort hockey club today, we competed hard, we did many good things — but I thought we lost our cool and I thought we ended up losing the game because of that,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said.

    Crunch drop heartbreaker against the class of the league.

    WBS-3
    SYR-1

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 22 shots for the hard luck loss.

    First Period
    15:34 SYR Dotchin (3), (Richard, Conacher)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    5:33 WBS Rowney (7), (Simon, Gaunce)
    8:37 WBS Simon (5), (Guentzel, Pouliot)
    19:26 WBS Guentzel (21), (Ruhwedel, Kostopoulos)(PP)(EN)

    Jake Dotchin was the game's second star.

    Syracuse slips 1 point behind Albany in the North Division with 3 games in hand on the Devils. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton had a gaudy .770 winning percentage coming into the contest, so it bodes well that the Crunch could play them as even as they did.

    The Syracuse Crunch seized the momentum late in the second period.

    The Crunch tied the score with 20 seconds left in the middle period, added the go-ahead goal 1:10 into the third and held on for a 5-4 win against the Toronto Marlies at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “I’m very happy with the way we bounced back,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “That game reminded me of the first game here. The momentum was shifting left and right. They have a good team, and we had to grind it out.”

    The Syracuse Crunch had their chances in the third period, but couldn’t find the go-ahead goal.

    The Crunch poured on the pressure and outshot the IceCaps 17-6 in the third, but St. John’s capitalized on a turnover to top Syracuse, 2-1, in overtime at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “Very disappointing outcome, obviously,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “We had so many chances, especially in the third period where we were flying, skating, and playing with urgency. We made one mistake and the puck is in the net.

    “This weekend was about that. Strong effort, strong game — we didn’t give much tonight — but the other team was very opportunistic and in both games we faced two solid goalies. It is what it is.”

    Organization's week of frustration rolls on unabated.

    STJ-2
    SYR-1 (OT)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 19 shots for the OT loss.

    First Period
    18:33 STJ Camara (1), (Brouillette)

    Second Period
    13:46 SYR Halmo (11), (Conacher, Vermin)(PP)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Overtime
    1:24 STJ Audette (7), (Matteau, Brouillette)

    Mike Halmo and Dominik Masin were the game's second and third stars.

    Syracuse does move 1 point clear of Albany in the North Division by virtue of the Devils' loss to Lehigh Valley. Still, the team has been a very pedestrian 3-3-1-3 over their last 10 games and can (and honestly likely will) do better.

    My kingdom for some goaltending.

    SYR-3
    RCH-4 (SO)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 18 shots before conceding to 1 of 3 in the penalty shot session for the Shootout loss. Maybe it's not fair to expect more from Gudlevskis after spending a couple of weeks making sure the end of the Lightning bench was anchored down, but it's painful to consider that the organization has been bereft of quality goaltending over the past couple of weeks.

    First Period
    8:06 RCH Bonis (5), (Karabacek)
    13:27 RCH Muzito-Bagenda (4), (Karabacek)
    17:00 SYR Taormina (10), (Comrie, Conacher)(PP)

    Second Period
    1:08 RCH Baptiste (16), (Rodrigues, Schneider)(PP)

    Third Period
    2:23 SYR Halmo (10), (unassisted)
    10:05 SYR Condra (7), (Taormina)(SH)

    Overtime
    NO SCORING

    Shootout
    SYR- NONE
    RCH- O'Reilly

    Matt Taormina was the game's second star.

    Syracuse outshot Rochester by a whopping 39-19 in the contest, but as you all know hockey is a far more frustrating sport when you have to work so much harder than your opponent in order to score a goal due to uneven goaltending. It's a shame, too, because with consistent goaltending Syracuse would almost certainly be a legit championship contender in the AHL.

    On the good side, Syracuse runs up to 41 points in the standings to tie Albany for first in the North Division, with the Crunch holding three games in hand on the Devils.

    The tempers boiled over before the opening faceoff and never fully cooled down.

    The Crunch's Jeremy Morin and the IceCaps’ Bobby Farnham needed to be separated before the puck dropped and Syracuse captain Luke Witkowski had a run-in with Farnham moments later. The next 60 minutes featured 12 goals, a pair of fights and 96 penalty minutes, but Syracuse emerged with a 7-5 win over St. John’s at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I’m very proud of our captain, our team and the way we responded today,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “I thought we took charge of this game right off the bat. They came back — we maybe let our foot off the gas a little bit — but you have to give credit to the other team. They showed character. … For me, we were challenged physically lately, and I’m very proud of our captain and our team with the way we stood up for ourselves.”

    Syracuse Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx believed his team played good enough to win, but the defensive lapses proved to be too much.

    The Crunch and Senators each let a one-goal lead slip away, but Binghamton emerged with a win in the shootout to down Syracuse, 3-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “I thought we did some good things, obviously, but I think our defensemen have got to be better,” Groulx said. “(Goalie Adam Wilcox) was good tonight. He kept us in the game. We gave them two or three breakaways. I think our defense can be better. Other than that, I think the effort was good.”
