Dylan Blujus and Gudlevskis were the game's first and third stars.
The Crunch having an early Thanksgiving hangover and falling behind 3-0 early at home was predictable but unacceptable. That was the theme of the night throughout the Lightning organization, by the way: the home Thanksgiving hangover. Fortunately, Syracuse showed a lot of resiliency in roaring back to life in the Second Period before Blujus eventually scored the winning goal in his return from injury. It's kind of a shame that Blujus got nicked up when he did given the injuries the Lightning have up top, because looking at his timetable he should be close to earning his first cup of coffee with the Lightning.
Syracuse pulls to within 3 points of the division lead with 2 games in hand on Albany. If they can go on a little run, first place seems there for the taking.
