If you missed the past couple of weeks in the Adirondack Phantoms schedule, you did not miss much. In their last five games they have gone 3-2.
In their most recent game they played their home finale with the Springfield Falcons. The Falcons outdid them, 3-2.
Phantoms Newcomer Mark Alt got the first goal for the Phantoms to tie it up in the second period and Rob Bordson scored a goal in the third period to try to lead the game to a tie so they could finish it off in overtime. Since this is the Phantoms, they could not.
Their efforts and the surge from the whole team did not come to fruition. The Falcons were still able to out do the Phantoms with the lead they gathered in the second period. The loss adds insult to injury for the Phantoms who have struggled all season long.
They will try to come away from the loss on Sunday as they finish off their regular season with an away game against the Albany Devils. The Phantoms and the Devils hate each other so expect their last game to be interesting no matter the outcome.
With the Phantoms’ wash of a season it should come as no surprise that they had no chance of a playoff run for the Calder Cup this year. Which also explains why their NHL affiliate the Phildelphia Flyers also had such a terrible season this year. The Flyers have also been eliminated from their playoffs, so it is clear that the whole organization has issues that need to be corrected before next season.
