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.

18:06 SYR Dumont (15), (Gaunce)(EN)
19:43 ROC Smith (2), (Veilleux, Cornel)

Carter Verhaeghe and Pasquale were the game's first and second stars.

How wonderful was it for the Crunch to get a total team win to kick down the door to the division title and seize crown? The kids, Taylor Raddysh and Mitchell Stephens, got Syracuse into the winning time, and the veterans like Verhaeghe and Gabriel Dumont took the team over the finish line.

Now with 101 points going into their final regular season tilt tomorrow, Syracuse will finish with the second best regular season record in the entire league. The Crunch will wait to see who their first round playoff opponent will be: either the Belleville Senators or the Cleveland Monsters. Both clubs are tied at 82 points with the Sens holding a decisive ROW advantage as the tiebreaker. However, both teams have tough finales tomorrow against Rochester and Toronto, respectively.
