Last Game: Last night at home, the Pens were shutout 2-0. For Syracuse, the Crunch lost in Hartford in overtime 3-2. Five different Crunch players recorded a point.

Last Meeting: November 15 in Wilkes-Barre, the Crunch won 3-2. Yanni Gourde had two goals for the Crunch.

Record: For WBS: 20-14-1-3 (44 pts., 1st place East Division) — For SYR: 22-9-5-0 (49 pts., 2nd place Northeast Division)

Why you should care: You’d think a team that has a 22-9-5-0 record would be a first place team, right? Not Syracuse. They play in the ever competitive Northeast Division where right now, the Springfield Falcons reign supreme. The Crunch are just three points behind the Falcons for the division lead and want to keep pace. Enter the Penguins who have lost three straight looking to salvage a weekend and stay ahead of the East Division for one more weekend. Expect a competitive contest.
