Phantoms Doubled-Down in Atlantic City





December 5, 2010





Atlantic City, NJ-A largely Phantoms supporting crowd in Atlantic City was not enough to help push Adirondack to victory as the Albany Devils won round 3 of the Time Warner Cable Cup 4-2 on Sunday evening.

Albany now leads the Time Warner Cable Cup 2-1 but there are still 9 games to be played between the local rivals.

Kevin Marshall scored his first of the year and Luke Pither rifled home his third but Adirondack had difficulties solving Devils' goalie Jeff Frazee on their other opportunities. Mike Testwuide assisted on both Phantoms goals.

The game was the second of Flyers goalie Michael Leighton's six day conditioning stint with the Phantoms. He made 23 saves on 27 shots.

Nick Palmieri and Adam Henrique were able to capitalize on early opportunities in the Phantoms zone to give the Devils the early 2-0 lead.

Mike Testwuide picked off a puck at center and Kevin Marshall took advantage of open space up the left-wing. His shot appeared to glance off the leg pad of Frazee and into the goal for Marshall's first tally of the year.

Adirondack picked up the energy in the 2nd period but Frazee was able to make a couple of acrobatic stops among his 12 saves in the frame. The Phantoms had a power play opportunity in the 3rd period with a chance to tie the game and had a couple more good shots but it was Trevor Kell who was able to steal the puck in the Phantoms zone and shoot one past Leighton on a shorthanded tally to boost Albany's lead to 3-1.

Luke Pither got it back for the Phantoms about a minute later. His top-shelf laser from the left-wing dot came after Mike Testwuide gained the line right up the middle and then flipped it over to the right wing to Denis Hamel who opted against shooting when he saw Pither open on the other side.

Adirondack kept the heat up but was unable to come up with the equalizer. Tim Sestito's shot from the right wing was saved by Leighton but Michael Swift scored on the rebound for a 4-2 Devils lead with 6:07 remaining.

Both teams went 0-for-3 on the power play. Adirondack outshot Albany in the 3rd period 11-6 and on the game 28-27. The next game of the Time Warner Cable Cup rivalry is January 1 at 7:00 at the Glens Falls Civic Center.

The game was one of four home games for the Devils at historic Boardwalk Hall but the majority of the fans were wearing Phantoms and Flyers gear many having made the hour drive from Philadelphia for the game. It was the first pro hockey game in Atlantic City since 2006 when the Atlantic City Boardwalk Bullies played in the ECHL.

The Phantoms conclude their stretch of five consecutive road games Friday night at the Syracuse Crunch.

Adirondack's next home is Saturday, December 11 against the Portland Pirates featuring the team's first annual Teddy Bear Toss. Fans get to bring their teddy bear donations for the Salvation Army to the game and throw them on the ice after the Phantoms score their first goal.
