Taylor Raddysh, Ross Colton, and Boris Katchouk were the game's three stars. Nice result for the Lightning's prospect forwards and their development.

Syracuse ended up outshooting Rochester by about a 3:2 margin, but I'll say it again: this is a very frustrating game when your team has to work that much harder just to get a goal because goaltending is not what it should be. Syracuse has the worst GAA in the Eastern Conference right now having surrendered 129 goals in just 37 games. Having the third most goals in the East will remain irrelevant until Syracuse can keep fishing it out of the back of their own nets.
