Syracuse puts on a clinic.
Adam Wilcox stopped all 25 shots he faced for the win and his first professional shutout.
4:17 SYR Morin (3), (Taormina, Richard)(PP)
5:32 SYR Condra (4), (Dotchin, Taormina)
10:02 SYR Erne (4), (Taormina, Condra)
14:39 SYR Erne (5), (Gourde, Condra)(EN)
Adam Erne snapped a 7 game goal drought with a pair of markers tonight, as well.
A coach's dream is when his team builds a 3-0 lead through 40 minutes, puts it on lockdown in the Third Period, and then adds an EN goal just to rub salt in the wound. That's how you draw it up.
With the win, at this moment, Syracuse finally has overtaken Albany for first place in the North Division and sits 4 points back of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Bridgeport for tops in the Eastern Conference, with games in hand on each of those teams (2 in Bridgeport's case).
