Phantoms and Amerks Play Exciting Game





October 30, 2010





Glens Falls, NY- The Adirondack Phantoms lit it up for three power play goals including two from rookie Andrew Rowe but were unable to hold the lead as the Rochester Americans came from behind for a 5-3 victory Saturday night at Glens Falls Civic Center.

The Phantoms went a season high 3-for-9 on the man advantage and outshot the Amerks 34-26 on the night in an exciting contest that included several terrific saves by Johan Backlund.

Rowe led the way with his 3rd and 4th career lamplighters in the first period. The Michigan State product had 17 goals and 28 points for the Spartans last year.

Jon Kalinski gave the Phantoms their first lead of the night at 3-2 in the 2nd period with his 3rd goal of the season. He also had a pair of assists on Rowe's tallies. Stefan Legein had a fine game and contributed a pair of assists as well.

Colby Robak scored late in the 2nd period to tie the game and then pushed across the game-winner in the 3rd for the Amerks.

Bill Thomas, formerly of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Phoenix Coyotes , scored in the opening and closing minutes of the game including an empty netter with 27 seconds remaining to seal the Amerks victory.

Thomas started the scoring 38 seconds into the game with an unassisted tally up the right-wing beating Backlund on the short side but the lead would not even last for two minutes as Andrew Rowe chipped in a feed from behind the cage by a hustling Legein nicely digging away a deflection of a Kalinski slapper.

Legein and Kalinski would again team up to find Rowe to make it 2-2 later in the period.

In the 2nd period it was Jon Kalinski picking up the rebound of a Marc-Andre Bourdon slapshot from the point that bounced out of the glove of Rochester goalie Jacob Markstrom.

The game featured a battle of Swedish goalies in Backlund and Markstrom. It also featured brothers Matt and Chris Clackson going against each other for the second time this year. Both played at Western Michigan University. Chris joined his older brother Matt on the Phantoms for a pair of games late last season before signing with the Florida Panthers organization and Rochester this year.

It was a big Halloween Party at the Glens Falls Civic Center featuring Phantoms Silly Bands for the kids courtesy of Saratoga Spine and a post-game skate with the Phantoms players presented by Glens Falls Hospital.

The Phantoms have almost a full week between games before getting back into action next weekend. Friday night Adirondack will travel to Portland, Maine to tangle with the Atlantic Division front-running Pirates. Saturday night the Phantoms will play at the Binghamton Senators.
