1. GLAD TO BE HOME

The Phantoms return home after a 12-day, four-game road trip in which they went 1-3-0-0. This will be just the second game of the season at the Glens Falls Civic Center, having won their home-opener on Oct. 13 by a 6-3 margin... Despite the win, the Phantoms have allowed the first goal in all five games so far this season.

2. STUCK IN THE MIDDLE
The Phantoms play the middle game of their three games in three days series… Last season the team went 8-4-0-0 in the 2nd game, seven of which were decided by one goal.

3. IN COME THE AMERKS
The Amerks come in as one of the hottest teams in the AHL, going 3-0-1-0 in their last four games, and sit atop the Western Conference with a 4-2-1-0 record for nine points… Last season, the Phantoms split the four-game season series, going 2-2-0-0.

4. Player to watch PHANTOMS: Zac Rinaldo
Rinaldo has goals in two straight games for Adirondack, recording the game-winning goal in the Phantoms' 4-3 win at St. John's last Saturday and posting his first penalty shot goal in last night's loss at Albany.

5. Player to watch AMERICANS: T.J. Brennan
The 21 year-old defenseman from Willingboro, NJ is tied for the AHL lead in scoring with 10 points (4G-6A) in seven games for Rochester… He has recorded points in four straight and six of his seven contests on the year so far… During his four-game point streak he has averaged two points per-game, recording four goals and four assists… He was the Buffalo Sabres second round pick (31st overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
