A couple of days of rest is a good thing, a chance to recharge and to refresh. After a physiucal first two games of this Syracuse ventures to Portland for tonight's Game 3.

Odds are Cedrick Desjardins starts for Syracuse, while the lineup should be the same as last weekend -- that means a 11/7 lineup that features Andrej Sustr as the seventh defenseman.

Every AHL Eastern Conference series is at 2-0. It's unlikely but would be amusing to see a complete Eastern Conference quarterfinal sweep
