Phantoms vs. Lowell Devils 1-16-09: Third Period

You know, as well as our PP has done in the past two games, that's how deficient our PK has been tonight. We gave up the tying goal while Lowell was on a PP, and since then the teams have been trying to kill each other in the effort to get the go-ahead goal. The score is 4-4 with 10:24 left in the period, and the SOG are Phantoms 16, Devils 36. We are poised to give up at least 38 shots for something like the tenth game in a row, which has got to be some kind of team record. It's not a record I'm particularly happy about, either. We need, and I do mean NEED, to stop being the team who's been hemmed into our end of the ice.

We need to stay out of the box, but even better, I would like to see us DRAW a penalty by putting Lowell on the defensive and forcing them to break up a scoring chance of ours.

SZWEZ!!!! So far, he is sthe hero of the night, as he has put us ahead with a goal! Assist by Clackson. Now GO PHANTOMS! hold this lead!

Here we go -- final minute of the game and the Devils have pulled the goalie. Clackson, Szwez, Sirianni, Bartulis, and Curry are on the ice.

Yiiiii, someone just fired the puck at about a zillion miles per hour down to the other end, but it missed the net. Hence, icing. The Phantoms have called timeout with 21.5 seconds left.

Hooray, we gutted that one out! Phantoms 5, Devils 4!
