Alexander Volkov and Wedgewood were the game's first and second stars.

Periodic reminder that Ross Colton is quietly killing it with 2-11-13 in his last 11 games, spitting out helpers like a Pez dispenser.

With points in nine of their last ten games, Syracuse has a three point cushion on fifth place in the North Division and sits just two points behind Utica for third place. However, other than Laval, the competition all has two or three games in hand on Syracuse, so they must keep streaking to keep postseason dreams alive.
