Boris Katchouk and Ross Colton were the game's first and second stars.

Ben Groulx can take pride in how his team responded to falling into a 3-1 hole given the struggles they've had against this particular opponent in that particular arena. A moment like this where the team can show resiliency is going to pay dividends down the road this season when they face different sets of adversity.

At 32 points in the standings, Syracuse is catching up to the logjam of three teams tied for third in the North Division at 33 points.
