On their special Pack The House Night promotion,
the Adirondack Phantoms' fans jammed the Glens
Falls Civic Center for their third sellout crowd
of the season and 12th all-time. The visiting
Hershey Bears were able to withstand a late Adirondack
rally for a 5-3 decision in front of 4,929 fans.
The game drew the sixth-largest crowd in Glens
Falls in Phantoms' history. The front-office aggressively
pushed Adirondack's last home game before the
league's All Star Break with ticket discounts
beginning with some $5 tickets a couple of weeks
ago. The fans gobbled up the great offer and jammed
the building for another big Hockey Night in Glens
Falls. Seating capacity of the Glens Falls Civic
Center is 4,794. After that point, standing-room
tickets are made available and the team has officially
reached a sellout status.
Adirondack also had sellouts this season on Opening
Night on October 12 drawing 5,031 fans and also
on Dax's Big Birthday Bash just a couple weeks
ago on January 18 when 4,800 arrived.
Trailing 4-1 in the third period, the Phantoms
stepped up their game with a number of impressive
pushes into the Bears' zone. Mark Alt pulled the
Phantoms to 4-2 with his high-slot wrister with
about 12 minutes remaining. And Bruno Gervais
scored a 5-on-3 goal with over five minutes remaining
to make it a one-goal game. But Adirondack was
unable to score on the ensuing 5-on-4 and eventually
Hershey scored a late empty-netter to finish the
Julian Brouillette scored a pair of goals to
lead the Hershey Bears attack. Phantoms goals
were scored by Rob Bordson (9th), Mark Alt (2nd)
and Bruno Gervais (7th).
The two teams tangle again in Philadelphia with
a quick turnaround. Following the overnight bus-ride,
it will be the Phantoms and the Bears at Wells
Fargo Center beginning at 1:00 PM. Adirondack's
next home date in Glens Falls is a couple weeks
away. The Phantoms return on Friday, February
14 for a Valentine's Day encounter with the Portland
Pirates. Call the Phantoms for tickets at 518-480-3355.

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.
