Phantoms Comeback Earns Standings Point





November 19, 2010





Charlotte, NC-The Adirondack Phantoms overcame deficits of 2-0 and 3-2 at the Charlotte Checkers Friday night but eventually fell in overtime by a 4-3 final as Bobby Sanguinetti's game-winner just trickled through Johan Backlund.

Matt Clackson (1), Eric Wellwood (5) and Ben Holmstrom (4) all scored in the Phantoms attack and Shane Harper earned two assists in his first AHL game of the season.

The Phantoms would blast a season-high 41 shots on goal in the game but Checkers goalie Mike Murphy would stymie the visitors all night long with several dazzling stops. Backlund played a great game on his end as well in the loss with 33 saves in the overtime setback.

Jacob McFlicker scored a 5-on-3 goal late in the first period and Zach Boychuk converted on a breakaway early in the second frame staking Charlotte to an early 2-0 advantage.

Matt Clackson's rolling, hopping dump-in from the red line eluded Murphy and found the goal to get the Phantoms on the board and jump-start the Adirondack attack.

Shane Harper rushed up the left-wing and dropped a centering feed for Eric Wellwood to chip in his 5th of the year tying the game at 2-2.

Bryan Rodney would score on the power play late in the 2nd period as Jerome Samson would knife his way into the zone and blast a shot off Backlund that he would poke home.

Early in the third period it was Erik Gustafsson blasting the puck from the left point for a mid-air deflection off the stick of Ben Holmstrom to tie the game at 3-3.

Adirondack had several good chances through the third period and into the overtime as well before Zach Boychuk would get to the puck behind the Phantoms cage and send it out to Sanguinetti in the high slot whose shot would hit off the arm of Backlund and just barely make it through him and roll of across the goal-line.

The Phantoms outshot the Checkers 41-37. Charlotte went 2-for-4 on the power play while Adirondack went 0-for-3.
