1. SEASON SERIES
This is the third of eight meetings on the year between the Phantoms and Crunch… The teams split the first two meetings with each team winning on each other's home ice… Syracuse has won four of their last five games, while the Phantoms have won three of their last five.

2. LAST ROADIE FOR A WHILE
The Phantoms complete their second longest road-swing of the season tonight, which is their 10th away game of the year out of 14 games total… The Phantoms own a 4-5-0-0 record on the road, while the Crunch own a 2-2-1-0 record playing at home… Following the game, the Phantoms return home for a six-game homestand through Dec. 1.

3. EARLY BIRD
The Crunch are nearly unbeatable when getting out to an early lead, going 4-0-1-0 when leading after the first period and 7-0-1-0 when leading after the second, however their only loss in overtime when leading after two periods came at the hands of the Phantoms when they scored a last minute power-play goal and the eventual game-winner in overtime to defeat Syracuse 4-3 on Oct. 28.

4. Player to watch PHANTOMS: Sean Couturier
After missing the first two games on the team's five-game road trip, Couturier has returned to the lineup, recording a goal in last night's loss at Binghamton… Overall in November, he has five points (2G-3A) in four games… Couturier has also posted three assists in two games against the Crunch.

5. Player to watch CRUNCH: Cory Conacher
Last year's AHL Rookie of the Year & League MVP leads the Crunch in scoring with 15 points, which is also tied for fifth in the AHL in scoring… Conacher began the season with an eight-game point streak, and currently has three points (1G-2A) in his last two contests… He also has a goal and an assist in two games against the Phantoms this season.
