Troy, NY - The Adirondack
Phantoms received goals from Peter MacDougall and
Garrett Klotz but it wasn't enough as an empty-net
goal with 14 seconds remaining sealed a 4-2 victory
for the Albany Devils at the Houston Fieldhouse
on the campus of RPI in Troy Saturday night.
David McIntyre again starred for the Devils this
time scoring two of the team's goals.
The game again featured several skirmishes and
penalties. MacDougal and Zac Rinaldo both took game
misconducts for the Phantoms for various altercations.
If the two preseason games between the Phantoms
and Devils are any indication the 12 regular season
encounters between the two area rivals could provide
for even more of the rough stuff.
Albany took advantage of the Adirondack penalties
by going 2-for-9 on the power play to provide the
difference. The Phantoms went 0-for-5.
Trailing 2-0 late in the second period the Phantoms
would score back to bach goals about two and a half
minutes apart to even the score. Peter MacDougall
deflected Chad Denny's drive from the point to get
the Phantoms on the board at 12:22. Then Garrett
Klotz walked in along the goal-line from the left-win
and jammed a backhander through Devils goalie Jeff
Frazee at 14:51 to tie the game.
The Phantoms dominated play at the beginning but
weren't able to capitalize against the Capital Region
foes. Adirondack had the first 9 shots on goal fo
the game and outshot the Devils 14-5 in the first
period even though Albany had a 5-on-3 power play
in the opening frame.
The Phantoms conclude the preseason Sunday night
at the Syracuse Crunch at 7:00.
Albany outshot Adirondack 29-26. Nic Riopel took
the loss for the Phantoms allowing 3 goals and making
25 saves on 28 shots. Jeff Frazee was the winner
for the second night in a row for the Devils with
24 saves on 26 shots.
