All of a sudden, Syracuse is struggling to win close games too.
Riku Helenius  allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the overtime loss.
RCH Mancari, (17) (McCormick, Rissmiller), 10:25 (PP)
SYR Palat, (11) (Barberio, Gudas), 1:28 (PP)
RCH McNabb, (5) (Mancari, Adam), 4:50 (PP)
Ondrej Palat  was the game's second star. Palat has 5 goals and 13 points in his last 8 games. I believe that technically qualifies as "on fire". With Benoit Pouliot  possibly hurt in today's game against Boston, I wonder if Palat might be worthy of some consideration for a cup of coffee.
Syracuse finishes their weekend tomorrow against Hershey.
