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.
The 22nd season of Syracuse Crunch hockey started with high hopes as the Crunch took on their Rte. 81 rivals, the Binghamton Senators. Kristers Gudlevskis earned the win with 27 saves and Jeff Tambellini scored both of Syracuse’s goals in the 2-1 win. Although both teams seemed to be sizing each other up for much of the game, there was plenty of action and great plays by both sides and each goalie looked sharp in net.
The heat and humidity were brutal on the final day of the Nationals. I didn’t stay long, but still spent enough time to get a few shots in. For the complete set – all three days, and a lot more than what I’ve posted here – click to browse or to order prints.
