    Despite falling behind in the opening minutes of the third period, the Syracuse Crunch found a way to rally.

    Mike Blunden scored shorthanded for his second goal of the night, Mike Angelidis added the go-ahead goal on the power play two minutes later, and Andrei Vasilevskiy shut the door on multiple scrambles in the final minutes, as the Crunch topped the Hartford Wolf Pack, 3-2, to take the Northeast Division lead heading into the all-star break at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "Mike Blunden was unreal tonight, (Mike) Angelidis was good tonight," said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. "All the guys you count on night in and night out really stepped up."

    Syracuse takes the division lead heading into the AHL All-Star Break.

    HFD-2
    SYR-3

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 32 shots for the victory. As with last night's game, solid stat line and key saves at key moments.

    First Period
    SYR Blunden, (12) (Koekkoek, Corrente), 1:29
    HFD Allen, (6) (Mueller, Vaive), 5:17 (PP)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    HFD Hrivik, (5) (Bodie, Kristo), 2:31
    SYR Blunden, (13) (Namestnikov), 7:47 (SH)
    SYR Angelidis, (14) (Blunden, Mormina), 9:48 (PP)

    Mike Blunden, Mike Angelidis, and Vasilevskiy were the game's three stars.

    The win allows Syracuse to move 1 point ahead of Springfield into first place in the Northeast Division, 1 point back of Manchester for the conference lead. Almost as important, it allowed the Crunch to expand their lead over the Wolf Pack to 4 points in the ultra-competitive Northeast race, as the Crunch's division might be the toughest in the league this season.

    The league standings says you have won 75% of your games, but then again you've lost 4 of your last 5, 5 of your last 8, and the cellar-dwelling Gwinnett Gladiators have put a 7-spot up on the scoreboard in back-to-back games. Seems like a reason for concern in Estero. The once unflappable Allen York is winless in this last 3, allowing 16 goals in that span, and his save percentage has dipped below 90% for the first time this season. Friday night, the 'Blades took a 3-2 lead into 2nd intermission, partly behind Lightning camper Mike Aviani's sixth goal of the season that was the equalizer early in the 2nd period. But far from closing out a one-goal lead, Florida allowed five 3rd period Gwinnett goals on just six shots! York made just 1 save on 5 shots in that disastrous 3rd period. Florida draws the rematch Saturday night against Gwinnett looking to stop the bleeding.

    Wichita Thunder 4 at Rapid City Rush 5

    F Danick Gauthier, WIC: 0-2-2, +1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, *Third Star*

    Season totals (AHL): 1 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM

    D Daniel Milan, WIC: 0-0-0, E, 5 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 37 GP, 0-10-10, -6, 87 PIM, 36 SOG

    Fresh off an impressive performance in the ECHL All-Star game, Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier earned a visiting team Third Star in an losing effort Friday night. Gauthier assisted on the Thunder's first and last goals, the latter being a power-play marker that knotted the game at 4-4 early in the 3rd period. Back from recall to Syracuse, Lightning prospect Dan Milan squared off against Rush forward Daniel Barczuk in a bit of fisticuffs following Wichita's 3-2 go ahead tally early in the 2nd period. The Thunder, losers of 3 straight and 6 of their last 8, get another shot at Rapid City Saturday night.

    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    Yanni Gourde accepted the pass, saw the empty net and looked to finish off the hat trick.

    The Crunch forward, who had his father and 11 other friends and family watching, guarded the puck against the Phantoms defender but had the stick slashed in half before he could finish the backhand motion. Gourde finished with a pair of goals, as Syracuse scored three unanswered goals to top Lehigh Valley, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "I was waiting for those goals for a while," Gourde said. "I've been working hard and they didn't come. Tonight they did. It's special to always score, especially in front of your family."

    Vasiy and Gourde spook the Phantoms.

    LV-2
    SYR-4

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 32 shots for the victory. It's a solid stat line, but the real key was making big saves at key junctures of the game, like any really good goaltender does.

    First Period
    SYR Kunyk, (6) (Lynch, Dodero), 7:21
    LV Goumas, (2) (Delisle, Comrie), 17:00
    LV Straka, (10) (Goumas, Comrie), 17:24

    Second Period
    SYR Gourde, (14) , 3:23
    SYR Ikonen, (5) (Angelidis, Corrente), 17:45

    Third Period
    SYR Gourde, (15) (Richard, Vermin), 4:00

    Yanni Gourde, Henri Ikonen and Vasilevskiy were the game's three stars. Gourde snapped a 9 game goalless streak with his tally. Ikonen, for his part, has 3 goals in the last 6 games.

    With Springfield falling to Hartford tonight, Syracuse moves back to just 1 point back in the division with 1 game in hand.

    Ontario Hockey League

    Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 4 @ Barrie Colts 3

    D Anthony DeAngelo, SOO: 0-2-2, -2, 0 PIM
    With SSM: 5 GP, 1-7-8, +1, 6 PIM
    With Sarnia: 29 GP, 10-28-38, +1, 64 PIM

    2013-14 totals: 51 GP, 15-56-71, -34, 90 PIM

    Barrie cut a 3-0 lead to 3-2 early in the third period, but a Greyhound power play goal assisted by DeAngelo extended the lead for the final time midway through the final frame. The Soo has won six straight games and are undefeated since DeAngelo and the other new additions joined the lineup.

    Oshawa Generals 5 @ Peterborough Petes 2

    D Dominik Masin, PBO: 1-1-2, +1, 4 PIM, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 33 GP, 7-10-17, -22, 53 PIM

    Masin had his fourth multi-point game of the season and now has goals in two of his last three games and points in three of his last four. Perhaps this is the blossoming we’ve been expecting in the second half.
