Gudlevskis, Crunch Bounce Back to Top Comets


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Kristers Gudlevskis bounced back.

The Crunch goalie, one night after being pulled in a 7-6 loss to Albany, registered 38 saves and an assist on the game-winning power play goal to lift Syracuse over the Utica Comets, 4-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

"It's a new game, that's history and move on," Gudlevskis said of the game Friday. "Most important was to bounce back from yesterday."
