Crunch Shut Out by Penguins, 2-0


By Jeremy Houghtaling

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins scored twice in the first period, and held on to hand the Syracuse Crunch their second straight shutout loss, 2-0, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

Syracuse had trouble creating sustained pressure, and was held to four shots in the first period and 16 overall.

"For whatever reason -- it's hard to explain -- we came out flat tonight," said Syracuse forward Jon DiSalvatore. "You've got to be ready to battle, you've got to be ready for the pressure."

AHL Game Night: 3-21-14 Penguins at Crunch

Offensive outage continues.

WBS-2
SYR-0

Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 28 shots for another hard luck loss. Lack of goal support is a terrible thing.

First Period
WBS Machacek, (17) (Ebbett, Dumoulin), 7:38
WBS Payerl, (3) (Manderson, Zlobin), 17:39 (PP)

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
NO SCORING

Gudlevkis was the game's third star.

16 shots on goal. That's all Syracuse could manage in the entire game. 16 shots on goal. That's about 5 less than Bishop had to stop in the Third Period alone against Toronto the other night. 16? It's embarrassing.
