Gemel Smith and Devante Stephens were the game’s first and third stars. Smith finished the night with a hat trick, two helpers, and then took a 5+2 in a fight in the Third Period just to collect the Gordie How hat trick.
Quite the departure from earlier in the season when it was Syracuse digging themselves some crazy big holes early in games. Periodic reminder: Groulx is part warlock.
