Gemel Smith, Otto Somppi, and Ben Thomas were the game’s three stars.

Syracuse finally put together the kind of dominant performance their talent level suggests on paper they’re capable of. I’m not even talking about the eight goals, either. The team outpossessed Toronto, a perennially strong AHL club, by a remarkable 56-22 advantage. The eight goals may not happen every night, but this kind of well rounded pressure attack from Syracuse absolutely can, and with a little luck you get a night like this one where everyone starts finding the scoresheet and everyone gets to feed.

Third Period
NO SCORING

Alex Barre-Boulet, Cal Foote and Wedgewood were the game's three stars.

The Otto Somppi boomlet continues.

After a paucity of games to start the year, Syracuse's 3 in 3 nights weekend could do a lot to raise their standing on the division table. They've got games in hand on all of the teams in front of them in the North Division and their .667 points percentage is actually fourth best in the division to this point. So, if they can keep winning at that clip, they should make up ground quickly with games coming in clumps.

2:09 SYR Stephens (2), (unassisted)

Mitchell Stephens, Daniel Walcott, and Otto Somppi were the game's three stars.

Somppi really played well in the AHL preseason, which often doesn't amount to a hill of beans. But, he's carried that momentum into 4 points in his first 5 games of the regular season. That's found money with a talented Finn who has had some issues with injuries that have held him back.
