Phantoms Week in Review
Friday, April 5 - Wilkes-Barre/Scranton
Penguins 3 - Adirondack Phantoms 2 (OT)
Shane Harper's tying goal with 6:44 remaining
helped Adirondack earn a standings point for their
fifth consecutive home game but Alex Grant of
the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins blasted home
the game-winner in overtime in a 3-2 decision
Friday night at the Glens Falls Civic Center.
Adirondack improved to 4-0-1 in their last five
Harper's goal on the power play came on a backdoor
feed by newcomer Kyle Flanagan. It was Harper's
first game back with the Phantoms after spending
all of March with the Trenton Titans of the ECHL
where he excelled.
Garrett Roe scored his 10th of the season early
in the second period. And Brian Boucher played
some dazzling hockey between the pipes especially
down the stretch to get Adirondack into the extra-period
and earn the standings point.
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton had a power play at the
end of the third that carried over into the overtime
and Adirondack was able to kill off both ends
of the man-advantage. But the Phantoms were still
pinned in their zone and that ultimately led to
Alex Grant's game-winning blast from center-point.
Saturday, April 6 - Rochester Americans
5 - Adirondack Phantoms 4 (SO)
Saturday night had a little bit of everything...in
the game AND in the stands! Adirondack and Rochester
battled in an intense and entertaining game with
the Americans eventually pulling it out in the
shootout for a 5-4 victory. The standings-point
with the shootout loss was the sixth in a row
at home for the Phantoms who are now 4-0-2 at
the Glens Falls Civic Center since March 8.
And in the stands, hundreds of fans received
gifts and prizes courtesy of the Phantoms, Flyers,
and our Corporate Partners on Fan Appreciation
Night as the merchandise and gift-certificates
were flying fast and furious all around the building.
Jon Sim scored two goals and an assist and then
added another goal in the shootout in one of the
his top games of the year. Garrett Roe (11th)
and Marcel Noebels (12th) lit the lamp for the
other tallies for the Phantoms. Roe has goals
in back-to-back games this weekend and now has
racked up six goals in his 11 games.
Both teams had chances down the stretch. Nick
Bailen out of RPI was playing in just his second
pro game for Rochester and almost won the game
in the overtime as his center-point slapshot rang
off the crossbar.
Sunday, April 7 - Bridgeport Sound
Tigers 4 - Adirondack Phantoms 1
Jason Akeson scored his team-leading 16th goal
of the season and prospect Nick Cousins made his
season-debut for the Phantoms but Adirondack lost
on the road to Bridgeport 4-1 on Sunday evening.
David Ulstrom had two goals and one assist to
pace the Sound Tigers and Rick DiPietro made 34
saves in the win as the Bridgeport Sound Tigers
avenged a setback by the exact same score in Glens
Falls eight days ago. Adirondack's power play,
which had been so hot lately, cooled off going
Eric Wellwood left the game in the second period
with a scary injury after a skate-slice to the
back of his lower right-leg that came from his
own skate. He was rushed out of the ice from the
bench while the puck was still in play leaving
a trail of blood on his way to the locker-room
door. Wellwood had surgery at a local hospital
to repair the initial damage and then was transported
to Philadelphia for another surgery later in the
Nick Cousins played his first professional game
of the season and the second of his career as
he suited up wearing #25. He was initially paired
on a line with Zack FitzGerald and Derek Mathers.
But after the injury to Wellwood forced Terry
Murray to juggle his lines, Cousins would be reunited
with his Major Juniors line-mate Brandon Alderson
on several shifts.
Saratoga Spine Phantoms Player of the
Week - Garrett Roe
Garrett Roe is the Saratoga Spine Player of the
Week after notching goals in back-to-back games
last weekend. The second-year pro out of St. Cloud
State scored on a deflection late in Saturday
night's game against Rochester for a 4-4 tie helping
the Phantoms earn a point in a 5-4 shootout loss.
Roe has 11 goals this season and is one of the
hottest scorers on the team of late with six goals
in the last 11 games. That's a great turnaround
after scoring only five goals in his first 40
games played of the season.
Lighting it Up!
The Adirondack Phantoms have scored 4 or more
goals in 5 of their last 9 games for one of their
best offensive surges of the season.
But it actually goes back a bit further as well.
The Phantoms have been held to fewer than 2 goals
in a game only twice in the last 19 games.
Jason Akeson has scored 10 goals on the power
play out of his 16 total goals this season.

Power Play Streak Ends
The Phantoms had scored a power play goal in six
straight games, their longest such stretch of
the season. The streak came to a crashing halt
on Sunday at Bridgeport when the Phantoms went
0-for-7 on the man-advantage. Adirondack is 10-for-33
(30.3%) in their last seven games.
have been lighting it up especially well on the
power play. All the more impressive when one considers
the various promotions to Philadelphia and all
the roster moves and near-constant changes to
the personnel on the team's man-advantage.
Adirondack has moved up to 14th in the AHL (out
of 30) at 17.1% after hovering around the mid-20's
earlier in the season.

bit lately going 0-2-1 in their last three games.
