Syracuse Crunch vs. Utica Comets

The Syracuse Crunch took on the Utica Comets tonight at the War Memorial at OnCenter in Syracuse, NY. The rivals battled all game long, but Kristers Gudlevskis proved the hero with a 47 save effort, as the Crunch defeated the Comets by a score of 2-1. He seemed to be back to his Olympian form, making quite a few incredible saves, at times seeming to literally stand on his head.

Game 3 – Syracuse Crunch vs. Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins

It was a sad finish to an otherwise promising season. The Crunch lost 12 of their last 13 games and were swept in Round 1 of the Calder Cup playoffs. The final game featured some great battles, but in the end, the momentum was too much to overcome. The last month of hockey for Syracuse will hopefully provide a lot of lessons for talented, but young team.

Syracuse Crunch vs. Adirondack Phantoms

The Syracuse Crunch played their last home game of the season last night at the Onondaga County War Memorial at OnCenter. Unfortunately, the Crunch lost in the shootout although it was a pretty exiting game throughout.

Celebrating Veterans With The Syracuse Crunch

A few days after Veterans’ Day, the Syracuse Crunch played host to the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins. Unlike typical openings, the night started out with eight servicemen and women holding a large flag over center ice during the singing of The Star Spangled Banner. The crowd was particularly silent and respectful as the soloist finished the Anthem, and the applause rang out louder and longer in appreciation for the veterans in attendance. It was a fitting tribute and a special night at the War Memorial.

Crunch Hockey!

Tonight is Game 6 of the 2013 Calder Cup Finals. With excitement building – at least for me, if not for thousands of Syracuse Crunch fans – I thought I’d post a few shots I got during Game 2 from the Onondaga County War Memorial. Go Crunch!
