Game Recap: Connecticut 3, Phantoms 1

The Adirondack Phantoms completed their preseason schedule with another closed-session exhibition game, this time against the Connecticut Whale. The Saturday evening game was played inside the New York Rangers training facility in Tarrytown, NY. Connecticut broke a late 1-1 tie with a goal by Chad Kolarik with 34.3 seconds remaining and the Whale added an empty-netter to pull out the 3-1 win.

Brayden Schenn scored for the Phantoms and came very close to another on a few different occasions. In fact, he thought he had broken a 1-1 tie late in the third and was in mid-celebration with arms raised after thinking he had jammed it in. But the goal-light had not come on and none of the officials believed it had gone it. Schenn had several other tries in the game too and showed some of the best energy on the ice.

Then with two minutes left in the third period, he almost broke the late deadlock again when his flip across the slot to Eric Wellwood on a 2-on-1 just missed the mark.

Schenn's goal in the middle of the second period came on an extended power play attack in the Connecticut zone in which the Phantoms kept coming and coming with try after try. It was fed to him in the high slot where he teed-up his drive and roofed home his nice goal. Erik Gustafsson and Sean Couturier assisted on the tally. Couturier's feed came from the right-wall.

Scott Munroe played in net for Adirondack and was solid throughout making a couple of very nice saves. But, for the most part, Adirondack appeared to have the better of the play and kept the puck in the Connecticut zone especially in the first and second periods.

Shots on goal in the first period favored the Phantoms 8-2 leading to a scoreless deadlock after 20 minutes. A wild and back-and-forth second period saw both teams score goals as the Phantoms outshot the Whale 18-12. Connecticut came on strong in the third and Munroe made some very nice saves to keep the game deadlocked.

Munroe even denied J.T. Miller on a penalty shot with 6:35 left.

The Phantoms lineup included 3 Marc-Andre Bourdon, 5 Danny Syvret, 9 Rob Bordson, 10 Brayden Schenn, 13 Zack Fitzgerald, 14 Sean Couturier, 15 Andrew Johnston, 16 Tye McGinn, 20 Cullen Eddy, 22 Eric Wellwood, 24 Harry Zolnierczyk, 25 Matt Ford, 26 Zac Rinaldo, 27 Garrett Roe, 28 Brandon Manning, 36 Erik Gustafsson, 38 Jason Akeson, 43 Sergei Sentyurin and goalie 33 Scott Munroe.

The team will begin the Glens Falls portion of their training camp on Tuesday at the Glens Falls Civic Center. Practice-time on Tuesday will be at 11:00 am. The Phantoms will also hold practice on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at the GFCC in preparation for their season opener on Saturday, October 13 against the Portland Pirates.
