December 7, 2021

Weekly Recap
Friday, Dec. 3
Charlotte Checkers 5 – Phantoms 3
Charlie Gerard hit the post on a breakaway with 2:28 on what would have been the tying goal and the Checkers escaped with a 5-3 victory at PPL Center. Near the beginning of the game, the Phantoms hit the post thre times in a row in about 15 seconds during a 5-on-3 power play. Adam Clendening scored in the first period to give the Phantoms a 1-0 lead but the Checkers surged back. 29-year-old forward Nick Lappin scored his first goal as a Phantom after joining the team a couple weeks ago.
The Phantoms received almost 1,300 coats in our annual WFMZ-69 Coat Drive to benefit the Salvation Army. Thank you, Fans!!


Friday, December 10, 7:05 – Phantoms at Hartford Wolf Pack
The Phantoms make their first visit to Hartford, Conn. to take on the Wolf Pack, AHL affiliate of the New York Rangers. Hartford had their games postponed last week due to AHL COVID-19 protocols.
