    Despite having to weather the storm from the Phantoms for long stretches in the second and third periods, the Crunch emerged with the win.

    Goalie Adam Wilcox made 48 saves, the penalty kill was flawless and Matt Taormina’s goal late in the third lifted Syracuse to a 4-2 win over Lehigh Valley at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday.

    “I think we have to give credit tonight to our goalie, obviously. He was our best player out there,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “Our PK was phenomenal too. I think (Erik) Condra, (Yanni) Gourde, (Michael) Bournival, (Cory) Conacher, (Matthew) Peca, (Adam) Erne with our group defensemen and our best PKer, which is our goalie, were very good. (The Phantoms) have a good power play, and they did an outstanding job at killing penalties.”

    A goaltender rises...

    LV-2
    SYR-4

    Adam Wilcox allowed 2 goals on 50 (not a typo) shots for the victory. Wilcox is now 9-3-0 on the season with 1 shutout, a 2.13 GAA, and a .924 sv%. His 9 wins now matches his total number of victories from all of his rookie pro campaign. Tonight was his statement of intent to take over the starting job in Syracuse permanently. I don't think, ultimately, he's going to lose in his bid.

    First Period
    11:57 LV Bardreau (3), (Knight)
    12:29 SYR Peca (5), (Condra, Erne)
    12:50 SYR Dotchin (2), (Gourde, Halmo)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    10:40 LV Bardreau (4), (Knight, O'Neill)
    17:25 SYR Taormina (7), (Erne, Condra)
    19:39 SYR Gourde (6), (Condra)(EN)(SH)

    Wilcox and Matt Taormina were the game's first and second stars.

    When the Lightning organization's farm team last won a championship with the Norfolk Admirals, they did so with a team that was fortunate enough to have two high-quality AHL starting goaltenders in Dustin Tokarski and Jaroslav Janus. Coming into this season, with a Syracuse roster stocked to the gills with veteran firepower, it's always seemed the limiting factor would be goaltending where it wasn't clear the Crunch even had one high-quality AHL starter. Now that we're well past the quarter post of the season, though, it's becoming clear one of the two netminders in Syracuse's tandem has risen up and clearly separated himself from the other. Adam Wilcox doesn't have all the physical gifts that Kristers Gudlevskis does, but goaltending is only partially about pure athleticism. Like boxing, goaltending is also a sweet science of understanding angles, body positioning, reading your opponents, and the ebb and flow of the game. Gudlevskis has struggled to find his calm place in the sweet science of the goaltending game. Adam Wilcox is finding his comfort zone inside the maelstrom around his crease and he's made his move. The numbers don't lie. Wilcox is now 7th in the AHL in GAA and 8th in save percentage.

    Syracuse moves 1 point up on Albany for first in the North Division with 2 games in hand.

    Ontario Hockey League

    Niagara IceDogs 3 @ Sarnia Sting 4 (SO)

    W/C Christopher Paquette, NIA: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, 4/11 FO
    Season Totals: 25 GP, 10-8-18, -5, 12 PIM
    2015-2016 Season: 57 GP, 5-11-16, -6, 18 PIM

    The IceDogs fought back from a 3-1 deficit to force overtime and a shootout, but fell in the circus, 2-0.

    Erie Otters 6 @ Owen Sound Attack 1

    W Taylor Raddysh, Erie: 0-2-2, +1, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season Totals: 27 GP, 23-35-58, +35, 17 PIM
    2015-2016 Season: 67 GP, 24-49-73, +19, 18 PIM

    Raddysh had two assists and his linemates Dylan Strome (1+3) and Alex DeBrincat (2+1) combined with him for nine points as Erie swept the Attack in Owen Sound for the weekend.

    Windsor Spitfires 3 @ Saginaw Spirit 2 (OT)

    W Mitchell Stephens, SAG: Did not play
    Season Totals: 22 GP, 11-15-26, +13, 14 PIM
    2015-2016 Totals: 39 GP, 20-18-38, -3, 14 PIM

    Stephens was a late scratch for Saginaw, prompting speculation that a trade might be in the works. Stephens, who is already signed with Tampa Bay, is in his last year of junior hockey and while Saginaw has done well lately, conventional thought is the Spirit can cash in on a Stephens trade to set themselves up for the future. Though he played in Saginaw’s last game, it was an injury that kept him out Sunday.

    Western Hockey League

    Brandon Wheat Kings 0 @ Kamloops Blazers 4

    G Connor Ingram, KAM: Win, 29 saves on 29 shots, shutout, *Third Star*
    Season Totals: 24 GP, 14-9-1-0, 2.12 GAA, .935 sv%, 2 SO
    2015-2016 Season: 61 GP, 34-15-5-4, 2.61 GAA, .922 sv%, 4 SO

    Ingram won his third game in a row, this time by shutout, beating Brandon, 4-0. His 2.12 GAA is second in the WHL to Carter Hart (Flyers) at 1.65, and his save percentage, win total, and shutout totals are just behind Hart (.937, 15, 4). Hart and Ingram will battle through Canada’s World Juniors camp to be the team’s No. 1 goalie.

    Goaltending betrays Syracuse.

    SYR-2
    HER-4

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 12 shots for the loss, and there were questionable goals in those 3.

    First Period
    15:02 HER Mitchell (2), (unassisted)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    0:23 HER Sanford (1), (Walker, Djoos)
    3:38 SYR Conacher (4), (Taormina, Richard)(PP)
    5:08 SYR Gourde (5), (Peca, Gudlevskis)(PP)
    18:31 HER Ness (3), (Boyd, Lewington)
    19:37 HER Sill (3), (Malone)(EN)

    It's a hard pill to swallow losing when you outshoot an opponent 37-13. Goaltending remains the limiting factor that has to be questioned when you look at how far this Syracuse team can go. They have most everything else.

    Lightning grind out a road point before a much needed rest.

    TB-0
    CAR-1

    Ben Bishop allowed 1 goal on 30 shots for the OT loss. It wasn't a great goal to allow, but he made several fantastic stops in regulation just to make OT possible.

    Second Period

    Third Period

    Overtime
    1:26 CAR DiGiuseppe (1), (Stalberg)

    Bishop was the game's third star.

    The Lightning emptied the tank tonight knowing they have a rare 3 day break coming up before their next game on Thursday night. This is a tired, banged up team that is in the middle of a November/December schedule that is relentless in its pacing. 3 of 4 points on this weekend set may mean the Lightning can't finish with 12 points in this 10 game segment of the year, but they're still alive to stay on playoff pace in the final 3 games of the segment if they can harness the rest they're getting this week to gather themselves and string together some more wins.

    Brayden Point had 2 penalty minutes, 4 shots, and 1 hit in 15:52.

    Luke Witkowski had 3 hits and 1 blocked shot in 10:55.

    Slater Koekkoek had 3 hits and 1 blocked shot in 14:59.

    Joel Vermin had 2 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 10:46.
