Last sunday was the Adirondack Phantoms’ mascot Dax’s second birthday, so naturally the Phantoms wore Dax jerseys instead of their regular ones. I don’t know what is with this organization and their affinity for weird jerseys, but on Sunday they won against the Binghamton Senators, so maybe Dax gave them some luck.
The first period was scoreless, but of course there was fight because this is the Phantoms we’re talking about. Cullen Eddy and Hugh Jessiman got into a fight at the end of period.
Matt Mangene got the Phantoms on the board in the following period on the power play. The Senators couldn’t score in the period, but Cole Schneider was instigating and even started a fight with Ian Slater, Schneider even got a 10 minute misconduct for it.
Jon Sim increased the Phantoms lead to two in the last period early on, and a few minutes later Dustin Gazley scored the only goal the Senators would get past Cal Heeter. The last period was pretty slow and only one penalty was called, but it allowed the Phantoms to log another win. They were led to a 2-1 victory over the Senators.
The Phantoms took less penalties than the Senators in this game (22-32) but they still took a lot which is something the team desperately needs to work on.
