    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    Less than a minute and a half after a Springfield goal, Syracuse found an answer.

    The Mike Blunden tip-in on a Luke Witkowski point shot cut the Falcons' lead to one but penalties limited the Crunch's opportunities to tie the game, as Syracuse fell to Springfield, 3-1, in the season opener at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    "We were hurt offensively because we had to kill eight penalties," said Crunch coach Rob Zettler. "We were undisciplined, and that in the end was the difference. When we tried to play 5-on-5 and play our game, we were starting to get chances. Then people take bad penalties and took away our momentum. We wasted a lot of energy killing those penalties."

    Not good enough.

    TB-2 (SO)

    Ben Bishop allowed 2 goals on 26 shots before surrendering scores to 2 of 3 in the penalty shot session to take the shootout loss. The Lightning should have no complaints about their goaltending tonight, though.

    First Period
    15:42 TB Hedman (2), (Stamkos, Filppula)(PP)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    7:34 OTT Karlsson (1), (Chiasson, Ryan)
    9:10 OTT Stone (1), (Turris)
    12:34 TB Connolly (1), (Boyle)


    OTT- Turris, Zibanejad
    TB- Kucherov

    Ben Bishop was the second star.

    You could try to spin this game as a positive. The Lightning outshot Ottawa 40-34. They absolutely ran circles around them possession-wise, at times, especially in the Second Period. You could chalk this up as a defeat due to Robin Lehner having a great night.

    And, that'd all be bull. The fact is, that effort tonight was not good enough, particularly from the Lightning's defense. And, it's not because Ottawa was the better team athletically. They're not. They have some players, particularly Karlsson, who put pressure on you, but the really annoying thing about this game was the number of mistakes made by the Lightning's blueliners when there was little or no pressure on them at all. The consistency of the breakout passing tonight was horrible. Passes off target. Hope passes up the boards to empty points. Bad. And, then you mix in some really bad turnovers at the point in the Ottawa zone to boot, which is just feeding into the strengths of Ottawa. Again, bad. That's self inflicted wounds and if it weren't for the fact that A.) They've got a world class netminder in Bishop, and B.) Ottawa frankly let them off the hook by not doing much with a lot of really amazing chances that they were given, they could've lost this game in regulation by a fairly wide margin.

    None of that excuses the defensive zone coverage of the forwards, either, by the way. Allowing Stone to gash right down the heart of the slot uncovered like he was taking a Sunday stroll is inexcusable, and you had your team captain, Steven Stamkos, and Mr. Intangibles, Ryan Callahan (who, leadership-wise, I've been told is a cross between George Washington, Braveheart, and MLK Jr.) who were the bystanders on that play just watching it happen. C'mon. Man up.

    The stakes have been raised, boys and girls. The prize this team got for a very convincing 2013-2014 campaign where they left the ice knowing that they have arguably the best goal scorer in the league (Stamkos), a legit Norris candidate (Hedman), and a legit Vezina candidate (Bishop), is the very real expectation that this team should be chasing a Stanley Cup on an annual basis for at least the next half decade. The General Manager of this team spent a lot of time and effort shoring up its deficiencies on the blueline and in terms of veteran leadership and all the pieces are pretty much in place for this club to be elite. So, there are no excuses for the slop we saw tonight. None at all.

    Monday, Montreal is coming to town. Anybody care to wager a certain Quebecois wunderkind might be making his NHL debut in that game? Can't wait to see that, and a team that should be very motivated to put their best foot forward unlike what we saw tonight.

    Vladislav Namestnikov was -1 and 67% on draws in 12:02 of ice time. His line had positive moments, but a man can't feed his family on potential. At some point, the Wizards of Ov line needs to yield some scoresheet production.

    Syracuse comes ever so close in its season opener.


    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 22 shots for the loss. He has his own rebound control to blame for one of those goals, but honestly, on most nights he did well enough in net to win.

    First Period
    SPR Hoeffel, (1) (Urban), 17:50

    Second Period
    SPR Urban, (1) (Tyrell, Collins), 2:19 (PP)
    SYR Blunden, (1) (Witkowski, Nesterov), 3:48

    Third Period
    SPR Craig, (1) (Sedlak), 19:59 (EN/SH)

    Mike Blunden was the game's second star.

    Syracuse nearly tied the game late at 2-2 when a Jonathan Marchessault goal was disallowed. Bolt Prospects Alumni Ryan Craig then twisted the knife with an empty netter to seal it for Springfield. Fellow Bolt Prospects Alumni Dana Tyrell also had a helper in the contest to stick it to his old organization.

    Syracuse faces Hartford tomorrow.

    Season totals: 10 GP, 3-1-4, -4, 4 PIM

    Ex-Jackets pick Sergei Mozyakin's Third Period goal broke a 4-4 tie to vault Magnitogorsk to a 5-4 win over Yugra. Mozyakin also had 2 helpers in the victory. Nikita Gusev had a minor for tripping in 16:31 of ice time in defeat.

    Orlando Solar Bears 3 @ Florida Everblades 2

    C Mike Aviani (TB Preseason Tryout), FLA: 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM, 1 SOG

    W Danick Gauthier, FLA: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG

    D Dan Milan, FLA: 0-0-0, +1, 2 PIM, 2 SOG

    D Artem Sergeev, FLA: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM, 0 SOG

    G Allen York (AHL Contract), FLA: Did not play (injured)

    Florida dropped their preseason opener, 3-2, to the rival Solar Bears. Syracuse assigned forward Danick Gauthier to the Everblades earlier in the week and he registered one of the two Florida goals. Mike Aviani, who was an impressive tryout player with the Lightning in the offseason and later signed to an ECHL contract, was scoreless in the match. Artem Sergeev, wearing No. 77, was scoreless in his first ECHL game. He spent all of his rookie pro season last year in Syracuse. Dan Milan, who played one game with Syracuse last year, three with Florida, and 50 with CHL Brampton (who is now in the ECHL), was also scoreless. Allen York, who is on an AHL contract with Syracuse, was not dressed for the Everblades. Ryan Toohey reported York tweaked his groin in practice a week ago.

    No. 20 Boston University Terriers 8 vs UMass Minutemen 1

    D John MacLeod, BU: 0-1-1, +1, 6 PIM, 1 SOG
    2013-2014 totals: 19 GP, 1-4-5, +1, 36 PIM

    “Johnny-Mac” (pictured) notched his first collegiate point and all-everything freshman Jack Eichel had two goals and four points as the Terriers put a snowman up on the UMass scoreboard, 8-1. There were three penalties in the game, all on MacLeod.

    Bemidji State Beavers 4 vs No. 2 North Dakota 1

    F Brendan O’Donnell, UND: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    2013-2014 totals: 34 GP, 7-11-18, +7, 10 PIM

    North Dakota was routed in their season debut, 4-1 by Bemidji State. As expected, O’Donnell started on UND’s first line. Blackhawks first rounder Nick Schmaltz was the only North Dakota player to register a goal. Brendan Harms (undrafted) had two goals for the Beavers.

    Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs 3 vs No. 1 Minnesota Golden Gophers 4
    Ice Breaker Tournament at Notre Dame

    G Adam Wilcox, MIN: Win, 24 saves on 27 shots
    2013-2014 totals: 38 GP, 26-6-6, 1.97 GAA, .932 sv%, 4 SO

    The Gophers had a 4-1 lead against the rival Bulldogs, but J.T. Brown’s alma mater cut Minnesota’s lead to 4-3 in the third period. Wilcox shut the door the rest of the way. The Lightning prospect and Hobey Baker candidate was beaten by a weak-side one-timer in the crease, a wrist shot from the RW circle, and a low-high one-timer from behind the net.
