Time Warner Cable Series Evened

January 28, 2011

The Phantoms traveled down the Northway for another Time Warner Cable Cup rivalry game with the Albany Devils Saturday night but were unable to break talented rookie goalie Keith Kinkaid as they took a 3-0 loss. Adirondack blasted 30 shots onto Kinkaid who made several tremendous saves in keeping the Phantoms out of the net.

The game was only the second time this year the Phantoms have been shutout this season with the first coming on December 6 in a 1-0 overtime loss at Hamilton.

The game was much closer than the final score would show. Adirondack trailed 1-0 for most of the game before the Devils added a late third period goal and then tacked on an empty-netter with just a few seconds remaining.

Albany was able to even the Time Warner Cable Cup series at three games apiece with the victory. Both teams have gone unbeaten on their home-ice in the rivalry.

The Devils were boosted by their largest crowd of the year, almost 8,200, which included several Phantoms fans as always is the case when the two local rivals hook up.

Tom Sestito's older brother scored the opening goal for Albany who took a 1-0 lead in the second period. Tim Sestito blasted a one-timer on an odd-man rush with Chad Wiseman nicely feeding it to him in the slot.

The Phantoms kept on coming at Kinkaid while mostly limiting the Devils chances. Over and over he would come up with the stops while his defense would sweep out the rebounds.

Peter Harrold would get hold of a long rebound in the right circle and shoot it through Jason Bacashihua with five minutes remaining for a 2-0 lead. Adirondack had several opportunities with their goalie pulled for an extra attacker in the minutes. Lots of whistles and lots of face-offs after Kinkaid covers. But eventually the Devils were able to get it out of there after several failed tries and Jacob Josephson would seal the win with 14 seconds left for the final goal.

The Phantoms played without Denis Hamel who was a surprising scratch from the lineup for undisclosed reasons. Garrett Klotz and Oliver Lauridsen were the other scratches.

The Phantoms hit the All-Star break with a chance to put hockey off their minds for a couple of days before starting anew when they return to practice on Wednesday and get going in their next games on Friday and Saturday.

The team will wait and see what the Flyers want to do on the other side of the NHL All-Star break. Harry Zolnierczyk returned to the Phantoms for the first time since October and played three games with the team this week. But he may be called back up to Philadelphia when they resume play. Ben Holmstrom and Tom Sestito were also sent back to the Phantoms after their more brief stays with the big club. It depends on the injury situations of the various Flyers stars who have been knocked out of the lineup.

Adirondack's next home games are against Norfolk and Providence back-to-back. The Saturday, February 4 game vs. the Providence Bruins is Jimmer Fredette bobblehead night for the first 3,000 fans.
