Division title in peril.
Adam Wilcox allowed 3 goals on 30 shots for the loss in his professional debut.
SYR Blujus, (3) (Martindale, Gourde), 11:21 (PP)
SPR Tynan, (12) (Pinkston, Vogelhuber), 14:05

SPR Tynan, (13) (Collins, Milano), 12:05 (PP)
Dylan Blujus was the game's third star.
It wasn't surprising the team struggled to score with Jonathan Marchessault on emergency recall to Tampa with Jonathan Drouin under the weather. Losing Marchessault essentially guts the Crunch of the engine that makes their offense go. The good news is Drouin and a slew of other injured Lightning players will be back when the playoffs start next week, so I would expect Marchessault and Witkowski, at a minimum, to be back with the Crunch for the rest of their run this year.
Syracuse's lead in the division slipped to 2 points over Hartford with the loss.
