Why You Should Care: Best team in the AHL against one of the worst tonight. Statistically, at least, but you know Syracuse is going to get up for this one after a nice overtime win over the Rochester Americans on Wednesday. Penguins  just need to go out and keep things simple against the Crunch and should find success tonight.

Other Game to Watch: Springfield has been a hot team of late. They beat Hershey Wednesday 2-1 and now face the Lehigh Valley Phantoms in Allentown. This is a potential trap game for the Phantoms.

Next Five Games: SYR 11/25, MIL 12/1, RCH 12/2, @ HER 12/3, @ LV 12/6
