2. GETTING AN EARLY LEAD
After starting the season with eight straight games in which the opponent has scored the first goal, the Phantoms have gotten on the board first in three of their last four games… Adirondack owns a perfect record when leading after the first period (1-0-0-0) and second period (3-0-0-0).

3. CHOCOLATE TOWN
This is the first of four meetings of the season with the Bears… Last season, Adirondack split their four games, going 2-2-0-0… Hershey has lost two straight games and five of their last six… The Bears have also been outshot in all but one of their 16 games so far this season.

4. Player to watch PHANTOMS: Sean Couturier
Sean Couturier has points in two straight games and three of his last four, recording three goals and four points in that span… So far in the month of November, he is averaging over a point-per-game with eight points (4G-4A) in seven games… Couturier ranks second on the team in scoring with 14 points.

5. Player to watch BEARS: Braden Holtby
The starting goaltender for the Washington Capitals in all 14 Stanley Cup Playoff games last season has played the majority of games for the Bears this year, posting a 4-6-0 record with a 2.69 goals-against average and .921 save percentage.
