Storyline

Coming off back-to-back home wins Friday and Saturday, the Albany Devils host the Syracuse Crunch Sunday at 5 pm. Albany’s magic number to secure a spot in the 2014 Calder Cup Playoffs is five. The Devils need to earn five points or the ninth-place team needs to fail to collect five points or a combination of both.
