-Binghamton faces conference leading Syracuse (13-4-2) this afternoon. The Crunch are lead by Tyler Johnson (22 points) and backstopped by Dustin Tokarski.
-Elmira faces the Trenton Titans again this afternoon.
–Brian Cazeneuve wants the NHL All-Star game fixed by having it decide home ice advantage ala MLB. This is a terrible idea. The game is meaningless, it will stay meaningless, and a half-assed attempt to make it matter is just going to irritate players (and fans). If the game has to be played at all (and the NHL will never get rid of it), I’d rather see it played at the end of the season, but that’s just not going to happen. As things stand I don’t foresee any meaningful changes to the game.
