The Phantoms are having an off season, especially since they have lost a few players to the NHL. Friday’s game against the Devils was no different as the Devils beat the Phantoms 4-3.
Matt Anderson got the Devils on the board early in the first period, but Jason Akeson tied it up later in the period on the power play. Marcel Noebels broke that tie for the Phantoms a few minutes later.
No one scored for the rest of the period, but it wouldn’t be a Phantoms-Devils game without a fight. Chris McKelvie and Cullen Eddy both got five minutes for fighting at the end of the first.
Before anyone scored in the second, Eddy and Mckelvie were duking it out again, but the Devils dominated the game in the period. Harri Pesonen and Joe Whitney both scored for the Devils. After Whitney’s goal another fight broke out this time between Oliver Lauridsen and Darcy Zajac.
Whitney scored again late in the period to give the Devils the lead. Tye McGinn got the Phantoms on the board again, by logging the only goal for the team in the last period. Despite his efforts, it wasn’t enough for the Phantoms, as the Devils were led to victory 4-3.
