Last year's appearance in Philadelphia led the AHL in single-game attendance for 2012-13 with 19,561 fans. It was also the team’s fourth-largest Philadelphia crowd ever and the third-largest regular-season indoor crowd in AHL history.

The Outdoor Classic in Philadelphia during the 2011-12 season drew a league-record 45,653 fans which more than doubles the next closest mark. Phantoms captain Ben Holmstrom dramatically tied that game with a 6-on-5 goal with just 21 seconds remaining leading to Shane Harper’s thrilling overtime winner (assisted by Eric Wellwood) against Braden Holtby.

The Philadelphia Phantoms played at the Spectrum for 13 seasons from 1996-2009 winning two Calder Cups in 1998 and 2005. But the Philadelphia Phantoms did play some games in Wells Fargo Center as well.

Of the 7 largest indoor crowds in AHL history, 5 were played at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
Of the 11 largest overall crowds in AHL history, 6 were played in Philadelphia.

Phantoms and Adirondack vs. Bears

The last time these two teams met in Philadelphia, the Phantoms staged a dramatic, late comeback in front of the largest crowd in AHL history on a magical night at Citizens Bank Park. 45,653 enjoyed the perfect weather on January 6, 2012 at the Outdoor Classic as Ben Holmstrom tied the game at 3-3 with just 20 seconds remaining. Then it was Shane Harper's winner in overtime that brought a deafening roar from the sold-out stadium.

 

 

This weekend will mark the 181st and 182nd all-time regular-season meetings between the Phantoms and the Hershey Bears.
The Phantoms are 85-85-10 all-time in the regular season against Hershey including 2-0-0 this year.
Hershey’s record against the Phantoms all-time regular season mark now stands at 87-77-16.

Both of the Phantoms games against Hershey this season have been in overtime. Brandon Manning scored the winner on October 5 at Giant Center in ChocolateTown in the season opener for both teams in a 4-3 final. Jason Akeson blasted home the game’s only tally on January 4, 2014 in a 1-0 overtime win.

The Phantoms and Bears have met in the playoffs four different times with Hershey taking three of those series; most recently in the 2009 opening round. The Phantoms swept the Bears 4-0 in the 1998 conference semi-finals on their way to their first Calder Cup title.

The Bears have also played against the Adirondack Red Wings in the playoffs five different times. The most famous of those meetings perhaps was the 1989 semi-finals in which the Red Wings overcame a 3 games to 0 deficit culminated by Adirondack’s Adam Graves scoring 10:31 into overtime in Game 7 in front of 6,106 fans crammed into the 4,800 seat Glens Falls Civic Center. Current Flyers assistant coach John Paddock was the head coach for the Hershey Bears in that series.
Adirondack and Hershey have met in the Calder Cup Finals one time. The Red Wings clinched the 1986 championship over the Hershey Bears in front of a Glens Falls record crowd of 6,401 on May 21, 1986.

Calder Cups since 1980
Adirondack Red Wings 1981, 1986, 1989, 1992

25 Terrific Seasons
Glens Falls is celebrating its 25th season hosting an AHL team and in so doing now joins an elite group of just 9 other active markets who can make such a claim. It's a great hockey tradition with an old-school feel that began with the Adirondack Red Wings in 1979. In their 20-year tenure at the Glens Falls Civic Center through 1999, the Red Wings won four Calder Cups. The Adirondack Phantoms began play in Glens Falls in 2009-10 and are in their fifth season bringing exciting AHL action to the North Country.
