Gudlevskis, Kristers

AHL Game Night: 2-27-15 Devils at Crunch

Crunch cut their kicker after he misses the extra point?

ALB-7
SYR-6

Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 7 goals on 23 shots for the loss. Shot his season save percentage all the way down to .896 in the process. Freshly signed Allen York stopped 4 in mop up duty in relief.

SYR Marchessault, (15) (Vermin, Dotchin), 9:45 (PP)

Cody Kunyk and Jonathan Marchessault were the game's second and third stars.

I'm trying to imagine what an ex-defenseman like Zettler is going through having given up 10 goals in one game and 7 in another over the last month or so. I suspect it makes him want to peel the paint off the walls with his fingernails. The good news was Syracuse actually got 3 PP goals, but they ultimately lost the game because they were -2 on special teams including surrendering a SH goal. 1/5 on the PK and giving up a SH goal is just awful. There's no sugar coating it.

You get a power play goal and it turns out to be the game winner. Funny how that works. Syracuse remains in second in the Eastern Conference, just 1 point shy of Manchester.

AHL Game Night: 2-20-15 Devils at Crunch

Offense starting to come together.

ALB-1
SYR-3

Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 1 goal on 21 shots for the victory. That's three pretty quality starts in a row as Gudlevskis adjusts to being the clear-cut number one between the pipes in Syracuse again.

First Period
SYR Gourde, (17) (Corrente, Ashton), 13:03

Second Period
SYR Marchessault, (13) (Namestnikov, Vermin), 1:42
ALB K. Zajac, (1) (Thompson, Burlon), 9:16 (PP)

Third Period
SYR Namestnikov, (10) (Broll), 8:35

Vladislav Namestnikov, Jonathan Marchessault, and Matt Corrente were the game's three stars.

Syracuse had a couple of, frankly, horrible games as they tried to make the adjustment after adding Ashton to the lineup in lieu of losing Mike Blunden. They also had to deal with Marchessault being out of the lineup due to injury and a rash of callups, but you could see that game-by-game things were starting to come together. This was hardly an offensive explosion to get 3 goals, but now you're starting to see some lines gel and little-by-little the results are coming.

Syracuse will jump over Hershey onto 2nd in the Eastern Conference with tonight's result and they'll be 1-2 points behind Manchester for the top spot when the night concludes. So, the hiccup that the Crunch had hasn't compromised their standings position to any great degree. The Crunch are still in a great spot if they continue to build up as they have been doing in the last 2-3 games.

AHL Game Night: 2-13-15 Crunch at Admirals

Syracuse has goalscoring amnesia.

SYR-0
NOR-2

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.

First Period
NOR Kerdiles, (9) (Wagner, Etem), 1:13 (PP)

Second Period
NOR Manson, (3) (Noesen, Karlsson), 18:42 (PP)

Third Period
NO SCORING

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.

Not a whole lot you can say. Sometimes you get the bear, and sometimes every bear in a 100 mile radius takes turns mauling you for 60 consecutive minutes.
