Just got home from the game. The Phantoms lost 2-1 in a pretty decent game. Pither had the only goal on a breakaway, an absolute bullet that he put past Enroth. Speed kills as they say, and he was screaming down the wing and he even had a chance to tie the game up with about 10 seconds left on another break away but hit the post. Leighton looked pretty good to be honest. The rebounds were not egregious, and the first goal was a result of a bad clear by Hamel on the PK, and the second goal was on an odd man rush that Leighton really didn't have a chance on. He made some pretty good saves though, was able to go side to side and covered the post. He made a particularly memorable sprawling save to rob a certain goal. He looked like the consummate veteran, and the Glens Falls faithful really loved it. He made 28 saves on 30 shots in the loss.
Rinaldo dropped the gloves right off the opening faceoff. I'd say he lost though, and he wasn't too much of a factor otherwise. It's amazing how great Pither looks with some legit wingers, this time he centered Hamel and Testwuide. Walker was a mostly invisble -1. Syvret played awesome - what else is new? Gustafsson was a +1.
Rowe, Legein, Ryan, Lehtivouri, Kalinski and JP Testwuide were the scratches. The only healthy scratch was Lehtivouri, and I am unsure about Michael Ryan.
If anybody wanted any particulars about the game feel free to ask.
