Charlie Dodero, Yanni Gourde, and Jake Dotchin were the game's three stars. Syracuse overcame a 2 goal deficit in the Third Period by getting a pair of power play goals from their typically dreadful extra man units. They ended up 2-for-6 on the game.
Syracuse maintains a 1 point lead atop the Eastern Conference over the Manchester Monarchs. They also opened up a 6 point lead on Hartford in the division and hold a 7 point lead over the cratering Springfield Falcons.
