Phantoms at Grand Rapids 1-10-09: Griffins Take the Rematch

I completely missed Saturday's rematch in Grand Rapids due to not being at home. However, speaking from the standpoint of content on the Phantoms' side of the box score, I fear I didn't miss a whole lot. The Griffins shut out the Phantoms, 4-0, putting an end to our win streak after one game.

Here is the link to the game recap, and here is a link to the box score.

I can't offer a lot of opinions about a game I was unable to watch, except to say that once again, our goaltender was bombarded with shots. Teslak stopped 44 out of 48. We have got to figure out what is wrong, that we have had a long number of games in a row where we have given up excessively high numbers of shots on goal. And then we have to remedy that. We can't live in our end of the ice and expect to win games... we have got to start being the team doing the bombarding of the opposing netminder.

Anyway, on to posting about today's game, which I will attempt to do live (even though I can't seem to get the Philadelphia audio on the freaking gamecast again -- freaking AHL Live has Gremlins again). Go Phantoms!
