Like their NHL Affiliate, the Phantoms do not like the Wikes-Barre Scranton Penguins. The Phantoms fell 2-1 to the Penguins in their game last Saturday, increasing their bad record this season.
Scranton got on the board first early on with a goal from Thompson while on the power play from a Phantoms tripping penalty. This was the only scoring in the first as the Phantoms took more penalties than scoring opportunities.
New recruit Noebels tried to help the Phantoms redeem themselves by scoring the first Phantoms goal 8 minutes in. Unfortunately for the Phantoms, the Penguins where right behind them. Dumoulin scored late in the period to give the Penguins the lead once again.
Neither team was able to score in the third period, so the Penguins took the win by defeating the Phantoms 2-1.
The Phantoms are back on the ice Friday night in a game against the Albany Devils.
