Why you should care: Matchup of division leaders here in Central New York. Penguins have owned the Crunch so far this season and Syracuse will likely have three transactions with players either being recalled to Tampa Bay or reassigned as that has been the theme for the Crunch this season. Will the Penguins win seven in a row and remain unbeaten in 2017?
