Adam Erne and Mike Blunden were the game's second and third stars.
Syracuse outshot Rochester 18-6 in the First Period, but could not get the payoff against Linus Ullmark. They ended up chasing the game for most of the rest of the night, successfully erasing a pair of 2-goal deficits before seeing the game slip away in the Third Period.
