    After totaling just three goals in the last five games, the Syracuse Crunch offense appeared to turn the corner.

    Yanni Gourde gave the Crunch the lead midway through the first period, Jonathan Marchessault added a goal early in the second, and after the Devils cut their deficit to one, Vladislav Namestnikov sealed the win with a breakaway goal in the third, as Syracuse topped Albany, 3-1, to snap a five game losing streak at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "I thought we started a little bit slow -- for six or seven minutes our execution wasn't there -- but we started rolling," said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. "I thought we competed hard. I thought the only time we were in trouble was the second period when we took three penalties in a row. It felt like they gained some momentum from it, they obviously scored on one of them, but we got back to our five on five game and controlled the play a little bit."

    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.

    Everytime the Lightning carry a 3 goal lead into the Second Intermission an angel gets its wings.

    TB-4
    ANA-1

    Ben Bishop allowed 1 goal on 25 shots for the victory. He didn't have a ton of work after the First Period, but he made a handful of key saves over the course of the game to eventually allow the Lightning to stick this one in cruise control.

    First Period
    4:17 ANA Maroon (7), (Rakell, Palmieri)

    Second Period
    4:31 TB Stralman (4), (Boyle, Drouin)
    5:55 TB Johnson (22), (Palat, Garrison)
    18:05 TB Kucherov (22), (Stralman, Palat)
    19:39 TB Stamkos (31), (Killorn, Sustr)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Steven Stamkos and Alex Killorn were the game's first and third stars.

    Both teams in this contest played a very loose First Period defensively and could've had a handful of goals. Anaheim had a chance to really grab the game by the throat with a two goal lead early when they got a 2-on-0 breakaway, but their failure to convert turned the game into a race to see who could make the adjustments first, defensively. The Lightning, emphatically, took the game by the throat in the middle frame outshooting the Ducks 20-5 and building the three goal lead that allowed them to glide through the last 20 minutes. I find the stress-free lifestyle that affords Lightning fans to be a very good thing.

    Steven Stamkos had 6-7 scoring chances in this game and Victor Hedman, although silent offensively, ended up blocking 9 (9!) shots on defense after looking a little iffy on Anaheim's only marker. I'll say it again, when the Lightning's two best non-goalie players play like their best players, everything tends to flow from there.

    At the 60 game mark, the Lightning have ended another successful 10-game segment with 78 points, meaning they have 6 insurance points headed into the 7th 10-game segment of the year. 12 in 10 do it again, as we officially move into the stretch run of the season and the final quarter of the regular year. On paper, they should be able to get off to a solid start to the segment as the final two games of the road trip are against opponents in Phoenix and Colorado that don't have the same level of quality as the first three opponents. But, you know, games are played on ice not on paper.

    Nikita Nesterov had 1 shot and 3 hits in 16:57. He got caught flat footed on one breakaway allowed to the Ducks, but was otherwise efficient.
