Cory Conacher, Luke Witkowski, and Ross Colton were the game's three stars.

Syracuse came into this game a little embarrassed, a little ticked, and a lot hungry, and they took it out on Laval early and often. Good on the Crunch to also go ahead and put the game away early in the Third Period with the soul destroying PP goal to quell any comeback hopes by the Rocket. That's what good teams do.
