Alex Barre-Boulet, Andy Andreoff, and Dennis Yan were the game's three stars. Boulet now sits above a point a game pace in this rookie pro campaign with 24 points in his first 22 games. Otto Somppi also cashed in his first pro goal in his AHL season debut with the Crunch after a brief stint in Orlando.

Toronto's been a fairly regular tormentor of the Crunch over the past few seasons, so to hang eight goals on them in front of their home crowd represents a small measure of sweet revenge. Syracuse moves past Cleveland into second place in the North Division with the win, four points back of Rochester with three games in hand.

Ben Groulx is a warlock.
