Crunch outlast Penguins... barely.
Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 9 shots. They were soft enough that he was lifted at the First Intermission for Andrei Vasilevskiy, who allowed 1 goal on 11 shots the rest of the way to eventually collect the come-from-behind win.

Mike Blunden, Jonathan Marchessault, and Vasilevskiy were the game's three stars.
The night also saw the return of Philippe Paradis from injury. Paradis has been a key missing cog from the Gourde line that has sputtered in his absence. Henri Ikonen also potted a goal for the second game in a row.
At this moment, Syracuse's 51 points has them 1 point off the pace for both the division and the conference lead.
