Glens Falls, NY-Andrew Rowe (6th) and Luke Pither
(8th) scored less than 2 minutes apart late in
the third period to lead Adirondack to a dramatic
4-3 come from behind victory at the Glens Falls
Civic Center on Wednesday night. It was Adirondack’s
first win against Binghamton this season.
The Phantoms have had their share of late comebacks
in many of their exciting January wins. And Wednesday
night featured another as Andrew Rowe, who has
been a healthy scratch as of late, tied the score
at 3-3 with 4:44 remaining in the third. Rowe
picked up a loose puck behind the net and snuck
one past Senators goaltender Mike Brodeur.
Following the game-tying goal, a flurry occurred
in front of Phantoms netminder Johan Backlund
but he stood tall to keep the game tied.
Luke Pither would then score the game-winner
shortly thereafter as he picked up a rebound in
the slot and ripped one top shelf giving Adirondack
the thrilling 4-3 lead.
Kevin Marshall finished the game with three assists
and was announced as the #2 Star of the Game while
Danny Syvret finished with 2 assists.
Adirondack opened the scoring at the 3:33 mark
of the first period. Jonathon Kalinski setup the
goal as he fired a shot from the blue line where
Rob Bordson would pick up a rebound and score
the first of his two goals on the night to give
Adirondack the 1-0 lead.
Less than six minutes later, Binghamton tied
the score at 1-1 on a Patrick Wiercioch shot from
the point that beat a screened Johan Backlund.
Bordson would strike again at the 12:26 mark
of the first as he scored his second of the night
and third as an Adirondack Phantom on a rebound
in front of the Binghamton net. Bordson’s
fourth goal of the season gave Adirondack the
Adirondack outshot Binghamton in the opening
Mike Brodeur would come on in relief of Robin
Lehner to start the second period who made 13
saves in the opening period for the Senators.
Binghamton would storm back to tie the game at
2:02 of the second period. David Dziurzynski from
the high slot beat Phantoms goaltender Johan Backlund
with a shot just under the crossbar to tie the
score at 2-2.
Following the second period, the Phantoms were
outshooting the Senators 26-13 and all but dominating
Corey Locke, the AHL leading scoring, gave Binghamton
a 3-2 lead though at 5:18 of the third period.
It was his sixteenth goal of the season with assist
to Derek Smith and Colin Greening. That is when
the Phantoms struck twice late in the third.
Adirondack and Binghamton finished 0-for-3 on
the power play. Johan Backlund made 21 saves to
earn his fifth victory of the season while Mike
Brodeur stopped 19 in the defeat.
