Anthony Richard, Cole Koepke, and Lagace were the game’s three stars.
Pretty evenly played contest with Montreal’s organization able to dedicate all their assets to the AHL playoffs, but Syracuse holds serve in Game One in the five game series. That’s going to be the trick here for the Crunch. Try to handle their business in these first two home tilts and they should be in good shape.
