    The pieces start to fit together?

    BNG-3
    SYR-4

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 36 shots for the victory. He gave his team a chance, holding them to within 2 of the Sens going into the final frame before the offense ramped up and delivered him some precious goal support.

    First Period
    BNG Prince, (17) , 3:15 (PP)
    BNG Puempel, (22) (Da Costa), 14:35 (PP)

    Second Period
    SYR Paquette, (16) (Namestnikov, Gudlevskis), 8:18 (PP)
    BNG Da Costa, (14) (Puempel, Stone), 12:40

    Third Period
    SYR Paradis, (3) (Sergeev, Angelidis), 7:42 (PP)
    SYR Connolly, (14) (Labrie, Angelidis), 12:59
    SYR Namestnikov, (17) (Marchessault, Connolly), 17:18

    Vladislav Namestnikov, Brett Connolly, and Mike Angelidis were the game's three stars. Today also marked the first point for new acquisition Jonathan Marchessault and the team also announced the signing of 22 year old left wing Yanni Gourde, who was a point a game player for Worchester in 25 games this season before being cut loose by the Sharks. Gourde and Marchessault, like Conacher and Johnson before them, fit the mold of undersized, skilled, and inexpensive prospects the Lightning have had huge success cultivating. Both should figure prominently into the rebuilding of the Crunch next season.

    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    Syracuse Crunch coach Rob Zettler was happy with the effort, but not the result.

    The Crunch allowed a pair of power play goals and empty-netters, as they fell to the Rochester Americans, 5-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "I thought our guys played well tonight," Zettler said. "I thought they competed hard, I thought they played well and I thought they deserved a better fate."

    Syracuse's Vlad Namestnikov opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal a little more than five minutes into the second, but the Crunch didn't stay ahead long.

    Lightning steal a point, but may have left one on the ice.

    BOS-4
    TB-3 (SO)

    Ben Bishop allowed 3 goals on 32 shots before allowing 1 of 7 shooters to convert in the penalty shot session for the SO Loss. It's not a dreadful stat line, however, the Boychuk goal that allowed Boston to tie the game in the Third Period was almost as dreadful as the Erik Johnson GWG Bishop allowed that cost the team the Colorado game. It's a heck of a time for Bishop to look mortal, and you can now legitimately say 2 points were left on the table in Bishop's last 2 starts because of inopportune soft goals.

    Shootout
    BOS- Smith
    TB- NONE

    Ondrej Palat was the game's third star. He got the opportunity to play with Valtteri Filppula tonight after playing with the reunited Palat/Johnson/Panik line against Buffalo. Whether he sticks with Filppula permanently or not, I'm glad to see Palat do well tonight. One of my concerns after seeing St. Louis dealt was whether or not Palat's scoring would fall of the table given how much chemistry those two had. I'm glad to see him get a multi-point game tonight and show that he can keep being productive.

    Overall, I guess you can look at this result a couple of different ways. Going in against a team the Lightning aren't built for and getting outshot 32-20, certainly the team should be thrilled to sneak a point out. On the other hand, it's another game where the Lightning had a 2-0 lead, and another game where they had a lead in the Third Period and they didn't get a "W", and it's really hurting their playoff chances badly.

    Mike Kostka was +1 with 2 hits and 1 blocked shot in 14:50. He's been a lot like Mark Barberio without the hype. Readers of this site will know that's a double-edged sword.

    Richard Panik was -1 with 2 shots and 1 blocked shot in 11:29. He hit a post on his shootout attempt, which is a shame, because a winner would've done boatloads for his confidence. Tonight's game graduated Panik from prospect status on the website.

    Drouin was out sick on Saturday. Usually it’s just his hands that are sick. Halifax held Saint John to 12 shots.

    Syracuse falls short in a tight one.

    RCH-5
    SYR-3

    Cedrick Desjardins allowed 3 goals on 18 shots for the loss. This was one of the rare games where you had an opponent getting 2 EN goals sandwiched around a 6th attacker goal. Putting that tidbit aside, 3 goals on 18 shots is an ugly stat line for a goaltender.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    SYR Namestnikov, (16) (Connolly), 5:13 (SH)
    RCH Larsson, (13) (Varone, MacKenzie), 9:59

    SYR Rankin, (12) (Paquette, Connolly), 19:36 (PP)
    RCH Zigomanis, (11) , 19:42 (EN)

    Cedric Paquette had the 7th multi-point night of his rookie campaign as the Dump Truck is closing in on a haul of about 20 goals. That'd be a nice number to get to in his maiden voyage in professional hockey.
