Matt Taormina had a goal and two assists for Syracuse, which evened the best-of-five, first-round series at a game apiece. Slater Koekkoek and Cory Conacher also scored.

Charles Hudon, Jacob de la Rose and Stefan Matteau, with a goal and an assist, provided the offense for the IceCaps.

Crunch goaltender Mike McKenna made 38 saves. St. John’s Charlie Lindgren stopped 46 shots.

Game three of the best-of-five series will be played in Syracuse on Wednesday night.
