    Syracuse Crunch head coach Rob Zettler still sees his team as a confident group.

    The Crunch fell behind despite outshooting the Springfield Falcons 18-8 in the first period and rallied to tie the score in the third, but Syracuse ultimately lost in overtime for a second straight night, 2-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    Despite multiple lineup shuffles due to injuries and trades, the Crunch increased their point streak to seven games to maintain their lead in the Northeast Division and Eastern Conference.

    "The last two games we lost in overtime, I get it," Zettler said. "We're able to scrounge a point out of it the last two games. We're still generating a lot of chances, we're just not scoring right now."

    Revenge of the Bolt Prospects alumnus...

    SPR-2
    SYR-1 (OT)

    Allen York allowed 2 goals on 36 shots for the OT loss. That's a quality effort for Syracuse's new backup.

    First Period
    SPR Craig, (12) (Sauve, Chaput), 7:11

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    SYR Angelidis, (15) (Richard, Koekkoek), 12:37 (PP)

    Overtime
    SPR Dano, (10) (Tyrell), 4:13

    York was the game's third star.

    On a night where Ric Flair was in the building signing autographs, it was a WCW-esque swerve that saw Bolt Prospects Alumni Ryan Craig score Springfield's lone regulation goal and fellow Bolt Prospects Alumni Dana Tyrell assist on the OT winner. It's like when Curt Hennig sided with the nWo in the cage at Fall Brawl. No!

    Syracuse holds a 1 point lead for the Eastern Conference lead and the overall AHL points lead, as of this posting.

    Whose idea was it to start a game at 5 pm?

    LAK-4
    TB-2

    Ben Bishop allowed 3 goals on 9 shots for the loss before giving way to Andrei Vasilevskiy, who allowed 1 goal on 20 shots the rest of the way. Sadly, Vasiy couldn't make that 1 more key stop he needed to give the team a real chance to complete the comeback bid.

    First Period
    1:33 LAK Toffoli (14), (unassisted)
    12:30 LAK Williams (14), (Lewis, Muzzin)
    19:58 LAK Doughty (5), (Regehr, Kopitar)

    Second Period
    0:58 TB Kucherov (19), (unassisted)

    Third Period
    1:34 TB Hedman (7), (Callahan)
    7:46 LAK Williams (15), (Gaborik, Regehr)

    Nikita Kucherov was the game's third star.

    The Lightning just didn't show up mentally until the game was already 3-0 at the end of the First Period. Chalk it up to the early start tonight, perhaps, but it was unacceptable. They need to be ready to go from the jump tomorrow against the Ducks or they'll have zero chance.

    Luke Witkowski was +1 with 2 hits and 1 blocked shot in 15:22. He, unfortunately, fell down trying to backtrack on a Filppula turnover on the first goal against, but was otherwise quiet, as usual.

    Nikita Nesterov had 2 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 17:15. He was very active on the first shift of the Second Period, with the resulting pressure ending up in Kucherov's goal.

    Syracuse backs into the AHL's top spot.

    BRI-2
    SYR-1 (OT)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 32 shots for the OT loss. Quality start for the Yak.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    BRI Graham, (3) (Conacher, Mouillierat), 7:41
    SYR Namestnikov, (9) (Gourde, Smith), 8:37

    Overtime
    BRI Mouillierat, (16) (Graham), 3:36

    Gudlevskis was the game's second star.

    The point from the OTL moves Syracuse into a tie with Oklahoma City for the top spot in the AHL and moves their edge in the Eastern Conference to 2 points over Manchester.

    The big news of the day, however, was the Lightning's acquisition of Carter Ashton and David Broll in exchange for a conditional 7th round pick in 2016. Ashton, of course, is a former Lightning first round pick who was shipped out of the organization in exchange for Keith Aulie (a deal we can now safely say neither team won). He's an accomplished power forward at the AHL level who should fill nicely for the injured Mike Blunden. Broll, a former 6th rounder in 2011, brings muscle, albeit not much else. He was playing for the Orlando Solar Bears in the ECHL prior to today's transaction.

    DeAngelo extended his point streak to 10 games with a goal and three assists. He earned first star in the Soo’s statement win over Connor McDavid and Erie. The two teams are projected to meet in the Western Conference Finals in a few months. The Greyhounds are now five points ahead of Erie for the top seed in the West. McDavid had an assist in Friday’s game.

    The Gens were too much for Windsor and extended their lead in the Eastern Conference to 18 points over the next best team, Barrie.

    Peterborough Petes 5 @ Ottawa 67’s 2

    D Dominik Masin, PBO: 0-2-2, E, 2 PIM
    Season totals: 39 GP, 7-16-23, -16, 64 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 39 GP, 2-19-21, +6, 102 PIM

    Masin has seven points in his last seven games. He’s really come on offensively in the second half of the season, as is typical for an import player in his first year.

    Western Hockey League

    Spokane Chiefs 3 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 2

    C Brayden Point, MJ: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 41 GP, 21-35-56, +8, 32 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

    Point created a turnover in front of the Spokane net that led to the Warriors’ second goal, but he was not credited with an assist. Moose Jaw put six forwards on the ice after pulling their goalie late in the game, but they couldn’t find the tying goal. They came close a few times, including once where Point was in front but couldn’t bat an airborne puck into the net. Moose Jaw retired Ryan Smyth’s jersey before the game. Smyth’s son was reportedly mostly interested in meeting Point because of his performance at the World Junior tournament.

    With a second point on the table in overtime, the Syracuse Crunch came up just short.

    The Crunch stopped the best power play in league on an extended 5-on-3 advantage in the second period, answered less than a minute after the Sound Tigers scored in the third, and Kristers Gudelvskis finished with 30 saves, but Bridgeport's Kael Mouillierat was able to score on a breakaway in the extra session to top Syracuse, 2-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    With points in each of the last six games, the Crunch has tied the Oklahoma City Barons for the most points in the AHL.

    "I think it's tough when you lose any game, especially like that," said Crunch captain Mike Angelidis. "I think we had a good chance to win the game. We came back after they scored. We just have to keep bearing down and hopefully we'll keep getting points as we go along."

    Sherbrooke Phoenix 1 @ Halifax Mooseheads 4

    C Cameron Darcy, SHR: 0-1-1, -2, 4 PIM, 7 SOG, 7/17 FO, 1 Hit
    With Sherbrooke: 20 GP, 13-16-29, -4, 24 PIM
    With Cape Breton: 19 GP, 1-13-14, -6, 14 PIM
    Season totals: 39 GP, 14-29-43, -9, 38 PIM
    2013-2014 Season: 65 GP, 35-47-82, +3, 51 PIM

    Darcy had an assist in the Phoenix’s 4-1 loss in Halifax. Jonathan Drouin’s former team came into the game 10 points behind Sherbrooke on the league table.

    Gatineau Olympiques 4 @ Quebec Remparts 7

    W Adam Erne, QUE: 2-0-2, E, 2 PIM, 5 SOG, 3/8 FO, 6 Hits, *Third Star*
    Season totals: 45 GP, 30-35-65, +16, 76 PIM
    2013-2014 Season: 48 GP, 21-41-62, -3, 65 PIM

    Erne set a new career high for goals in a season, hitting 30 for the year. He was on pace last year before injuries and WJC time cut his games. He’s also already passed his previous PIM career high. It looks as though Erne has been moved back to wing. He had been playing center for a few weeks, which he played last year. He projects as a winger at the professional level.

    Ontario Hockey League

    Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 6 @ Niagara IceDogs 8

    D Anthony DeAngelo, SOO: 0-2-2, +1, 4 PIM
    With SSM: 10 GP, 3-14-17, +7, 21 PIM
    With Sarnia: 29 GP, 10-28-38, +1, 64 PIM
    Season totals: 39 GP, 13-42-55, +8, 85 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 51 GP, 15-56-71, -34, 90 PIM

    DeAngelo extended his point streak to nine games with two assists Thursday night. Despite scoring six goals in the game, the Soo fell to the IceDogs, snapping their 10-game win streak. This was DeAngelo’s first loss as a member of the Greyhounds.

    Owen Sound Attack 7 @ Windsor Spitfires 5

    W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 44 GP, 15-18-33, -6, 85 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM

    Windsor is three points out of the last playoff spot in the West, which could mean DiGiacinto could be available for AHL Syracuse if needed.

    Guelph Storm 9 @ Peterborough Petes 4

    D Dominik Masin, PBO: 0-1-1, +3, 7 PIM
    Season totals: 38 GP, 7-14-21, -16, 64 PIM
    2013-14 totals: 39 GP, 2-19-21, +6, 102 PIM

    Masin has five points in his last six games. He fought Tyler Bertuzzi (Red Wings) on Thursday night. It was Masin’s fourth fight of the season. Bertuzzi, nephew of Todd Bertuzzi, received an instigator and game misconduct.

    Snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.

    TB-5
    DAL-3

    Andrei Vasilevskiy shined, allowing 3 goals on 36 shots for the victory. The Lightning would've had zero chance of winning tonight without Vasilevskiy.

    First Period
    3:11 TB Stamkos (28), (Callahan, Barberio)
    6:42 TB Hedman (6), (Stamkos)

    Second Period
    15:21 DAL Klingberg (10), (Seguin, Goligoski)
    15:36 DAL Goligoski (2), (Fiddler, Horcoff)

    Third Period
    12:27 TB Johnson (18), (Kucherov, Killorn)(PP)
    13:41 DAL Daley (13), (Ja. Benn, Demers)
    16:23 TB Johnson (19), (Boyle, Palat)
    18:43 TB Kucherov (18), (Palat)(EN)

    Tyler Johnson and Steven Stamkos were the game's first and third stars. Brian Boyle was robbed.

    This was, in many ways, role reversal from the Lightning's performance in St. Louis. The Lightning were on their heels most of the night, ultimately getting outshot 36-29, and probably should've been run out of the barn if it weren't for the goaltending they got from Vasiy. Then things got really weird when Jason Garrison got hurt, forcing Brian Boyle to take shifts on defense where he made the play of the game on a clean check on Jamie Benn at center ice that eventually led to his point shot that was deflected in by Johnson for the GWG. Yes, Brian Boyle, from the point, on defense (not in the Conservatory with the Candlestick). Honestly, you can't feel too guilty about it because they deserved so much better against the Blues. So, things evened out on this little mini trip.

    Unfortunately, if Garrison's injury is of any real severity, it puts the Lightning in a very tough spot with the California trip looming. Yzerman's basically got a week to bring someone in or he'll have to do something he probably doesn't want to do like raid the already thin cupboard in Syracuse. Paging Slater Koekkoek?

    Luke Witkowski was -1 with 2 penalty minutes and 1 hit in 13:47. It was a hard luck minus with Daley's shot off the rush hitting Witkowski's leg and deflecting past Vasiy.
