Phantoms at Albany River Rats 3-14-09: an abbreviated First Period commentary

I'm not live-blogging this game because I won't be able to stay at home long enough to watch the entire game online. However, WOW holy cow what a first period! It's not even over yet and the Phantoms are up 5-2. We have 5 goals on 16 shots, and Albany changed goaltenders after the fifth goal was scored.

It looked like it was likely to be a long night, and not in a good way, when Albany scored against us early. However, we soon tied the game, then went ahead 2-1 on goals from Laliberte and Kalinski.

Albany tied the score at 2-2 on their first PP of the game. However, between 16:31 and 18:02, the Phantoms scored three quick, unanswered goals from Laliberte, Syvret, and Kalinski.

That outburst ended the night for Albany's goaltender Manzato, in favor of Justin Peters.

Jean-Sebastian Aubin is the Phantoms' goaltender. I was a little surprised, given that Munroe's record vs. Albany is outstanding. However, keeping both our goalies active and sharp is a good idea.

Go Phantoms!
