Special teams lift Phantoms past Senators

The Adirondack Phantoms finished their third game in just as many nights with a win over the Binghamton Senators on Sunday, by a score of 2-1 at the Glens Falls Civic Center. The 3,127 who attended bore witness to the Phantoms (21-27-3) wearing Dax-themed jerseys to celebrate the mascots birthday (My head is still shaking just thinking about it). Special teams were the big highlight for the worn-out Phantoms. After killing the first of what would be two 5-on-3 advantages, the Phantoms went on the power play where Matt Mangene received a pass from Jason Akeson and skated down the right …

Munroe the Magnificent stars as Phantoms rout Crunch

Adirondack (19-24-3) had something to prove after a week of drama on and off the ice including a loss at Syracuse on Friday night. Goals by Erik Gustafsson, Matt Mangene, Jeff Dimmen and David Laliberte  chased starter Riku Helenius out of the net after two periods, while Cullen Eddy and Laliberte tallied in …

Bordson’s Redemption Helps Lead Phantoms Past Admirals

Adirondack’s Rob Bordson made up for his bad pass at the blue line – which gave Norfolk a 3-on-0 and an easy goal – by digging his skates in and scoring two of his own, helping to lead the Phantoms past the Norfolk Admirals 5-2 in front of a crowd of 3,157 at the Glens Falls Civic Center. Matt Mangene, Jason Akeson and Shane Harper also lit the lamp for the Phantoms (18-21-3) as the team moved even in the standings with the Admirals (18-22-3) with 39 points. Brian Boucher had 27 saves on the night. Norfolk’s goals were scored …
