Just an epic collapse in the second half of this game that ended with Syracuse blowing a pair of two goal leads and losing by two. Utica jumps back into second place in the division with the win with Syracuse trailing a point behind with a game in hand. The good news is that Syracuse did widen its lead on fourth place Rochester over the weekend to four points although the Americans do have a game in hand themselves.
