Gudlevskis, Kristers

AHL Game Day: 10-26-14 Crunch at Falcons

Weekend ends with a clunker.

SYR-1
SPR-5

Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 5 goals on 30 shots for the loss. Despite the setback, he still sports a respectable .912 save percentage for the season.

First Period
SPR Madaisky, (1) (Gibbons), 0:19
SPR Collins, (1) (Gibbons, Craig), 4:00 (PP)
SPR Rychel, (2) (Sedlak, Collins), 8:32

Second Period
SPR Tynan, (1) (Labrie, Anderson), 13:32

Third Period
SYR Vermin, (2) (Blunden, Marchessault), 2:32
SPR Monardo, (5) , 7:19

Playing 3 games in less than 72 hours is hard enough. Doing so with your entire roster in flux the whole time makes it nearly impossible to have anything resembling continuity or consistency. It's a reality of minor league hockey when you have a rash of injuries up top, and that's what bit Syracuse this weekend. Mike Blunden and Jonathan Marchessault, for their parts, did assist on Syracuse's lone goal, fresh off the plane from Minnesota.

Syracuse heads home to face Binghamton on Friday.

AHL Game Night: 10-24-14 Crunch at Sharks

No Drouin? No Paquette? No problem.

SYR-3
WOR-2 (OT)

Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 28 shots for the OT victory.

First Period
WOR Abeltshauser, (1) (Hamilton, Trupp), 7:54 (PP)
SYR Smith, (1) (Samson), 8:27

Second Period
SYR Angelidis, (1) (Paradis), 9:54

Third Period
WOR Haley, (4) (Emanuelsson, Carpenter), 18:49

Overtime
SYR Nesterov, (1) (Marchessault), 5:08 (PP)

Nikita Nesterov and Dalton Smith were the game's first and second stars.

With J.T. Brown and Brett Connolly getting hurt in tonight's Lightning game at Winnipeg, we'll see if a forward like Marchessault or Blunden gets the call for tomorrow's game at Minnesota. The Crunch, for their part, face Portland tomorrow.

AHL Game Night: 10-18-14 Senators at Crunch

Crunch's stars help pull out big victory over Bingo.

BNG-2
SYR-4

Kristers Gudlevskis had an excellent night allowing just 2 goals on 45 shots for the victory. Both defenses were porous, but Gudlevskis outdueled his counterpart at the opposite end of the rink.

First Period
BNG Schneider, (1) (Prince, Wideman), 3:58

Second Period
SYR Marchessault, (2) (Paquette, Drouin), 5:19
SYR Vermin, (1) (Blunden), 5:44
BNG Puempel, (1) (Johnson, Schneider), 8:51 (PP)

Third Period
SYR Blunden, (2) (Vermin, Kunyk), 13:20
SYR Corrente, (1) (Paquette, Drouin), 14:30

Mike Blunden, Jonathan Drouin, and Gudlevskis were the game's three stars. Drouin had 2 helpers and a game high 7 shots on goal. The current plan appears to be for Drouin to remain with the Crunch through next weekend before he rejoins the Lightning.

Syracuse travels to Worcester to play the Sharks next Friday.

AHL Game Night: 10-11-14 Falcons at Crunch

Syracuse comes ever so close in its season opener.

SPR-3
SYR-1

Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 22 shots for the loss. He has his own rebound control to blame for one of those goals, but honestly, on most nights he did well enough in net to win.

First Period
SPR Hoeffel, (1) (Urban), 17:50

Second Period
SPR Urban, (1) (Tyrell, Collins), 2:19 (PP)
SYR Blunden, (1) (Witkowski, Nesterov), 3:48

Third Period
SPR Craig, (1) (Sedlak), 19:59 (EN/SH)

Mike Blunden was the game's second star.

Syracuse nearly tied the game late at 2-2 when a Jonathan Marchessault goal was disallowed. Bolt Prospects Alumni Ryan Craig then twisted the knife with an empty netter to seal it for Springfield. Fellow Bolt Prospects Alumni Dana Tyrell also had a helper in the contest to stick it to his old organization.

Syracuse faces Hartford tomorrow.
