Game Night Results

    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie recalled looking at the scoreboard with 14 minutes remaining.

    With the Syracuse Crunch trailing 3-2, the forward saw 23 listed as his team's shots on goal. Twelve minutes later -- and the Crunch now trailing by three to the Rochester Americans -- the number had only changed by one.

    "We can't win the game (like that) if we're losing by two or three," Labrie said. "If you don't shoot, you don't score."

    Syracuse's 5-2 loss at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday snapped a three-game winning streak overall, and was the third straight loss on home ice.

    D Slater Koekkoek, PBO: 0-0-0, -4, 2 PIM (slashing)
    Season totals: 20 GP, 2-13-15, -16, 18 PIM

    The Petes spent part of the day at Niagara Falls, then fell to the IceDogs, 5-2. It was Peterborough’s fourth-straight loss. Koekkoek was a team-worst minus-4 on the night. Islanders first rounder Ryan Strome and Anthony DiFruscia (2013) each had two goals for Niagara. Strome leads the league in plus/minus at plus-27. Koekkoek is 554th, four ahead of Jake Cardwell of Ottawa for last and four behind the next closest players.

    Helenius and the Crunch crumble in the third period.


    Riku Helenius allowed 5 goals on 24 shots for the loss. He allowed 3 of those goals on 9 shots in the third period. Helenius looked to be back on the right track after a shutout in his last start, but he's been knocked back down to a 3.78 GAA and an ugly .852 sv% with this result.

    First Period

    Second Period
    RCH Tarnasky, (3) (Legault, Schofield), 5:28
    SYR Panik, (4) (Devos, Killorn), 9:17 (PP)
    RCH Rankin, (4) (Biega, Foligno), 12:16

    Third Period
    SYR Conacher, (7) (Palat, Nightingale), 3:45
    RCH Foligno, (6) (Rankin, Flynn), 6:12
    RCH Brennan, (6) (Mancari, Sundher), 9:38
    RCH Flynn, (4) (Foligno, McNabb), 18:08

    Richard Panik (pictured) was the game's second star. After a slow start to his season he now has 4 goals and 8 points in 11 games, and a 4 game points streak.

    It's a tough thing to see Bolt Prospects Alumni Nick Tarnasky contribute for Rochester. Et tu, Tarnasty?

    Syracuse faces Hershey next on Friday.

    Season totals: 7 GP, 3-2-1, 0 SO, 3.79 GAA, 193 S / 218 SA (.885 SV%)

    Florida, which rallied from an early two-goal deficit and held a 5-2 lead until midway through the game, gave one of the league powerhouses all it wanted in an entertaining game it ended up losing in dramatic fashion by allowing Gwinnett to score five times over a ten-minute stretch spanning the late second and early third periods. Special teams play was every bit the difference-maker as the Gladiators power play unit proved nearly perfect, scoring four of the five times they held the man advantage. The Gladiators outshot the Everblades 40-30 for the game. Nagle's numbers were ugly and there's the old adage that a goalie needs to be a team's best penalty-killer but the team defense in front of him bears some scrutiny as well. Hutchings, who scored for the third straight game to earn his sixth point (5 G, 1 A) during that span, brought the Everblades within a goal with about a minute and a half remaining in the game. Landry also scored, notching his first goal of the season early in the second that, at the time, capped off a five-goal Everblades run. Daniel Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent remain inactive. Florida (5-4-2) now has time to lick its wounds before hitting the road to face Greenville (9-4-1) next Thursday in another tough divisional showdown.

    Alaska Aces 6 @ Las Vegas Wranglers 4

    F Nate Thompson, AK: 1-0-1, +1, 4 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 12 GP, 1-6-7, -1, 16 PIM

    Alaska blew a two-all game wide open by finding the net four times in the second period and riding the large lead to its third-straight victory against Las Vegas. Tommy Mele and Nick Mazzolini, duplicating his performance last night, scored twice for Alaska while Nate Thompson buried a feed from Joey Crabb on a shorthanded two-on-one break to tie the game at one. For Thompson, it was his first goal of the season. Crabb was later ejected from the game along with Las Vegas' Channing Boe as both were given game misconducts after fighting each other. Alaska (8-4-0) is now set to return home and prepare for divisional-rival Colorado (6-4-2) on Wednesday.

Hutchings scored for the second straight game and now has five points, sixteen shots and is +3 through four games to start November. Pat Nagle had the night off as Hurricanes prospect John Muse started in net for the Everblades and stopped 34 of 37 shots to earn his second win of the season, his first since October 12th against Orlando.

Florida (5-4-2) returns to action tonight at home against a divisional foe, the Gwinnett Gladiators (9-3-1), who are currently atop the South division.

    Alaska Aces 2 @ Las Vegas Wranglers 1

    F Nate Thompson, AK: 0-0-0, E, 5 SOG, 2 PIM (tripping)
    Season totals: 11 GP, 0-6-6, -2, 16 PIM

    Alaska, buoyed by Nick Mazzolini's two goals and Mark Guggenberger's 30 saves, held off Las Vegas Friday night. After drawing first blood with a power play tally, the Aces regained the lead late in the second period when Mazzonlini got his stick on the puck as it came through the the low slot, deflecting it past the Wranglers' Joe Fallon, who had a solid night himself turning away 35 shots including several stops during a 5-on-3 opportunity for Alaska midway through the third period. Las Vegas held Alaska's locked-out trio of Joey Crabb, Brandon Dubinsky and Nate Thompson in check tonight, as they collectively managed ten shots and were penalized twice. Alaska (7-4-0) continues its short series against Las Vegas (3-5-1) tomorrow night.

    The defense doesn't rest for the Crunch.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 1 goal on 14 shots for the win. Yes, 14 shots. That's getting a full game check for half the work. Thank your defense, Tic.

    First Period
    SYR Devos, (1) (Korobov, Gudas), 16:07

    Second Period
    HAM Quailer, (1) (Nattinen, Dumont), 2:07
    SYR Angelidis, (4) (Wyman, Brown), 19:08

    Third Period
    SYR Johnson, (7) (Panik, Palat), 7:58
    SYR Johnson, (8) (Panik, Gudas), 10:55

    Tyler Johnson and Ondrej Palat were the game's first and second stars. Palat (pictured) is now tied for 3rd in the AHL in assists.

    Panik attack, y'all. 2 helpers.

    But, seriously. 14 shots? The Crunch already have an abnormal amount of offensive firepower. You're telling me they also have the ability to hold another professional team to 14 shots on goal defensively? Just give them the repeat now, if that's the case. It's just not fair to the rest of the league.
