Crunch Offense Struggles in Loss to Pirates

By Jeremy Houghtaling

When the Syracuse offense finally got chances, it struggled to convert.

Crunch forward Philippe Paradis scored midway through the third period but Pirates veteran goalie Mike McKenna stopped the other 20 shots on goal, as Syracuse fell to Portland, 4-1, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Wednesday.

The Crunch, who had won their last three games, have four of their top nine scorers called up to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

“It’s definitely a part of it, but it’s not an excuse,” said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. “It’s the old saying that other people have an opportunity. I didn’t think we made it hard enough for that team to play against us tonight.”

AHL Game Night: 11-18-15 Pirates at Crunch

Depleted Crunch fall to Portland.


Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 24 shots for the loss. After seeing Good Kristers in the last start he had, Bad Kristers reared his head tonight. Inconsistency is Gudlevskis' demon.

First Period

Third Period

POR Olson, (1) (Gaunce, Balisy), 19:25 (EN/PP)

Philippe Paradis was the game's third star.

With 2 of the team's top forwards in Tampa Bay and Gudlevskis not on top of his game, things slid south almost immediately.

NHL Game Night: 11-16-15 Lightning at Panthers

Deeply unjust hockey gods banish Lightning to deep standings hole.


Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 19 shots for the loss. He looked to me to be very sharp despite limited shots again. Followed the puck really well. I can't fault the kid for a lucky goal that takes a double deflection to get past him.

Vasilevskiy was the game's third star.

Vintage early '00's Panthers hockey. Give up a zillion shots with a collapsing defense and inept offense. Hope Luongo can keep you in the game and smash and grab it at the end. And they did. Disgusting. The Lightning deserved all 4 points from the home-and-home. They ended up getting 1.

On a side note, when is the NHL going to just move that franchise down there? It's bad enough to hold game's in front of a bristling crowd of hundreds, but tonight the ice conditions were as bad as I've seen ever. It looked like the game was being played with a racqetball, to the extend that you had even the most basic puckhandling and passing exercises eluded both teams. It was borderline unwatchable at times, and the league should be embarrassed in that product. If you're not going to make the Panthers invest in the infrastructure to at least make the rink playable the way Tampa Bay has, just quit playing footsie and move them to Quebec City already.

The hole is 5 points. The Lightning got 7 out of the target minimum of 12 points in that 10 game segment of the season. They'll be spending the bulk of the rest of this season trying to climb out of that hole. How bad is it? The Lightning could play at a .700 clip from here on out and it would take them 25 games to catch up with comfortable playoff pace. It's not good. That's why the injustice of these past two games against the Panthers hurts so much. Things went straight to hell in a handbasket, standings-wise, with those two defeats.

Matt Taormina had 1 shot and 1 hit in 9:16. Made some decent plays in limited ice time.

Jonathan Marchessault had 3 shots and 2 hits in 9:11. He rung post on one of the best chances the Lightning had in the game and was fairly active in the offensive zone in his limited ice time. That might've been his best game with the Lightning to date, in fact.
