Desjardins, Crunch Shut Out Falcons, 3-0


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Most first impressions take all of a few seconds.

For the first 13-plus minutes in front of his new home crowd at the Onondaga County War Memorial, Syracuse Crunch goalie Cedrick Desjardins waited for his opportunity.

When the shots finally came - 26 in total - the New Brunswick native had an answer, notching his first shutout in a Crunch uniform and third of the season in a 3-0 win over the Springfield Falcons Saturday night.

"You want a good first impression at home," Desjardins said. "I don't think it gets better than that."

A day after going without a point for just the third time this season, Kucherov (pictured) scored four times in a lopsided Huskies win over the Olympiques. He was originally credited with an assist, which would have given him his third five-point game in the last 10 days, but it was taken away on a scoring change. Kucherov is back to a two points per game average for the season.

D Artem Sergeev, VDO: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM, 4 SOG, 1 Hit

Florida was able to eliminate two separate deficits but surrendered a back-breaking, even-strength goal late in the third period that led to their demise against Evansville, which potted an empty net goal to close out the home squad. The Everblades outshot the Icemen 37-28 for the contest. Pat Nagle sat backup to Rob Madore while Dan Milan, who has been a fixture in the lineup since early January, got a rare night off. Alex Hutchings and Charles Landry remain with Syracuse of the AHL. Florida (28-17-10, 66 PTS) has time to regroup before hosting Reading (35-15-6, 76 PTS) in yet another cross-divisional contest Wednesday evening.
