Tye McGinn, Cory Conacher, and Yanni Gourde were the game's three stars.

Syracuse scored 5 unanswered goals in the Third Period, keyed in part by the return to Syracuse of several players who finished the regular season with Tampa Bay. They contributed 4 goals and 6 assists, by my count, to Syracuse's winning effort tonight.

Syracuse pulls back to within 1 point of Toronto for the North Division title with both teams having just 2 regular season games left to go.
