The Syracuse Crunch started the month of January hot, getting at least a point in thier first six games, but have since cooled off and lost four straight.
The Crunch sit in last place in the East Division and 14th out of 15 in the Eastern Conference. They trail Hershey ten points for the last playoff spot.
Tonight, the Crunch look to get things back on track with a game at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. The team will be without Richard Panik, Andrej Suster and Eric Neilson. All three are out with short term injuries.
