Southern Swing Concludes With 3-1 Setback

Norfolk, VA- The Adirondack Phantoms wrapped up their three game road-swing with a 3-1 loss to the Norfolk Admirals Saturday night at Norfolk Scope Arena. David Laliberte gave the Phantoms the early 1-0 lead on the power play in the first period but Adirondack was unable to solve Admirals netminder Dustin Tokarski after that.

Norfolk avenged their overtime loss at Glens Falls last week to even the season series at one game apiece. Nic Riopel took the loss in his second start of the week for the Phantoms after being called up from Greenville (SC) of the ECHL.

Alex Berry lit the lamp twice for the Admirals to earn #1 Star of the Game honors tying the game in the first period and then scoring the eventual game-winner late in the second frame. Former Albany River Rat Mike Angeledis scored from the left-wing circle early in the third period to give Norfolk breathing room at 3-1.

After blasting away for a season high 41 shots on goal Friday night in an overtime loss at Charlotte, the Phantoms only managed 22 shots on goal in the road-trip finale.

The Phantoms goal came as a result of Marc-Andre Bourdon hustling to the high slot to keep in a clearing attempt. Denis Hamel got to it in the corner and left it for Eric Wellwood who found Laliberte between the circles who buried his opportunity giving the Phantoms the 1-0 lead.

But the Admirals would rush back with Berry's goals late in the first and second periods to take the lead.

Trailing 3-1 in the third period Denis Hamel caught a high flip and pushed it forward to race into the zone on a breakaway only to be hooked from behind by Kevin Quick. Hamel was awarded the team's first penalty shot of the year at 13:53 into the third but his pump-fake and attempt to snap one top shelf appeared to glance of the goalie Toharski and miss high.

Adirondack had a power play and an extra-attacker for a 6-on-4 advantage with 1:08 to go to try to narrow the margin but a handful of Admirals clears kept the Phantoms from threatening.

Norfolk outshot the Phantoms 31-22. Adirondack held the Admirals to 0-3 on the power play. Adirondack was 1-for-4.
