    One night after a sluggish start led to a loss, Syracuse stormed out of the gate.

    The Crunch scored three times in the first period, including twice on the power play, and held on despite a late flurry by the Penguins, as Syracuse beat Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday. The loss snaps a seven-game winning streak for the Penguins.

    “It was a good 60 minutes,” Crunch head coach Rob Zettler said. “I thought we started well. Our power play was good early, which certainly helped against a team that averages under two goals a game.”

    4 is a fluke. 5 is a streak.

    PIT-4
    TB-5 (OT)

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 4 goals on 40 shots for the OT victory. It was a mixed bag for Vasilevskiy, mostly on the positive side. He showed off his athleticism and ability to read the play on several occasions, with several timely saves. On the other hand, he had one or two short side goals he probably regrets a little. Still, he was a factor in a night where the Lightning were outshot 40-25, for sure.

    First Period
    1:51 TB Namestnikov (7), (Stamkos, Nesterov)
    10:37 PIT Letang (6), (Crosby, Hornqvist)

    Second Period
    8:12 TB Filppula (6), (Johnson, Stamkos)(PP)
    10:47 TB Namestnikov (8), (Hedman, Filppula)(PP)
    14:23 PIT Hornqvist (10), (Malkin, Letang)(PP)

    Third Period
    10:13 PIT Daley (2), (Malkin, Kessel)
    13:48 PIT Kunitz (7), (Maatta, Hornqvist)
    15:21 TB Stralman (5), (Filppula, Paquette)

    Overtime
    2:11 TB Namestnikov (9), (Kucherov)

    Vladislav Namestnikov and Valtteri Filppula were the game's first and second stars. Namestnikov's selection was obvious, as he had his first NHL hat trick. Filppula had a 3 point night as he continues to try to revive his season after looking comatose most of the first half of the season.

    Interesting game. Entertaining for the casual fan. Less so for the serious fan who cares about limiting chances and goals against. The Lightning did a really good job of fending off the curse of coming out flat the first night off a road trip. They jumped all over Pittsburgh and got the early 1-0 goal. They unfortunately couldn't press it to 2-0 and ultimately lost that early momentum when they got in the box and eventually the Penguins equalized. The Lightning built a 3-1 lead in the Second Period on a string of undisciplined penalties by the Pens, but failed to get the knockout punch to go up 3 goals, which they very nearly paid the price for. The Pens owned most of the rest of the game, eventually storming back to take a 4-3 lead before Anton Stralman bailed the team out with a strong individual play on a spinorama backhand goal to equalize and get the game to Overtime. In an evenly played overtime, the Lightning got some puck luck with a Namestnikov whack on a Kucherov rebound going in off Hornqvist's stick. I'll take it, even though there will be about a million defensive coaching points for Cooper to drive home in video sessions after this one.

    For the first time this year, the Lightning finally got one of these games it'd be really nice to have with a view toward having a big 10-game segment of the year to make up ground. They've been decent at getting points early in the 10-game sets, but always seem to struggle a bit to get that next win or two quickly and set themselves up to have a good 14-16 point segment. With 8 points already and 6 games left to play, they're in excellent shape to have one of those big segments and make a serious dent in their 6 point season deficit and get on a more comfortable pace to make the playoffs. Getting a 5th straight win would be another one it'd be really nice to have. And, with two games against division-leading Florida coming up in the next 8 days, the Lightning have a chance to not only get on more solid footing, but they could also interject themselves in the division title race all of a sudden.

    Nikita Nesterov had a helper and 2 penalty minutes with 1 hit in 9:09. Like you would expect from Nesterov, he got in trouble when the Pens made him play more in his own zone. When his 5-man unit has the possession advantage, he's a huge asset. When the rink tilts, be afraid.

    Syracuse got off to a slow start and never quite recovered.

    The Crunch allowed a pair of first-period goals and didn’t find the back of the net until they pulled the goalie for an extra attacker in the final minutes, as Syracuse fell to the Utica Comets, 3-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    For Crunch head coach Rob Zettler, his team didn’t move the puck well, which led to not being able to attack with speed.

    “We came out flat to start, and there was some life in the second and third period, but the start really hurt us,” Zettler said. “We were flat for whatever reason and we weren’t moving pucks out well, and they came out strong and were up 2-0 early.”
