No love in Norfolk.
Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the OT loss. He also stopped a penalty shot in the game, as well. It's another quality start for Gudlevskis, who has eked his save percentage up to .901. That actually matches his save percentage last season in the AHL before being recalled to the Lightning after Bishop's injury.

Artem Sergeev notched his first AHL goal of the season, while Carter Ashton got his first point with the Crunch since his re-acquisition from the Toronto organization. Baby steps for the suddenly offense-starved Syracuse Crunch.

Calgary had its nine-game point streak snapped by the visiting Blades, who have already been eliminated from the playoff race.
Syracuse has goalscoring amnesia.
Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 28 shots for the loss. It was actually a quality start, but he would've had to stand on his head tonight to help overcome the fact the team could only muster 18 shots on goal.
NOR Kerdiles, (9) (Wagner, Etem), 1:13 (PP)
NOR Manson, (3) (Noesen, Karlsson), 18:42 (PP)
David Broll made his Crunch debut and promptly laid a vicious hit and got into a fight in a pretty robust physical game that saw a combined total of 72 PIM's handed out. Many were of the not-so-nice variety. As for the actual hockey game, one just has to hope that the Crunch are just in the midst of sorting out their new roles since the Ashton acquisition, and once they settle into the new roles the offense will turn back on. One hopes so, at least, after the team has been outscored 12-0 in the last 2 games.
