  • Phantoms 1, River Rats 1 (2nd intermission)

    Hoped to do a little more blogging pregame, but some techinical difficulites held me up.

    Heading into the third period it’s Adirondack 1, Albany 1.

    The Phantoms led 1-0 less than three minutes in on a Jared Ross power play goal. The River Rats tied it it nine minutes into the second on a goal by Jerome Sansom.

    Story of the game has been two-fold for the Phantoms: Johan Backlund and penalties.

    Backlund has been superb, stopping 12 of 13 shots (and I think those shot totals are a little low). But the Phantoms can’t stay out of the box. River Rats had two different two-men advantages in the first period and are 0 for 5 on the power play. They begin the third on a man advantage.

    Be back with a score update after the buzzer and a full recap later.
