OK, I didn't watch this on FH and Pointstreak has no info beyond the pre-game sheet. Furthermore, no one from the Phantoms Tweeted anything. I did manage to get some info from the SC Twitter feed abd it looks like the Phantoms won 3-2, holding off a late push by the Musketeers. I'll probably post a better recap if and when I get a chance to watch the games.
Youngstown took an early lead on a flukey bounce. They went on to dominate the rest of the first. SC managed to tie the game up in the second for and seemingly played a lot better, but not good enough. The Phantoms ended up going to the locker room with a 3-1 lead. We all know 2 goal leads aren't leads, they're disasters waiting to happen. Pre-season or not, the Musketeers are a hockey team and pride won't earn you a roster spot. It sounds like they played hard to the buzzer. They walked away from fights to get power play time. The Phantoms iced the puck late and let them get on with their top line and an extra skater for the final surge. The Phantoms goalie, presumably Romeo, held them back.
And hey, it's a pre-season tourny, they even went out for for a friendly 5 minute 3-on-3 skate. No one scored but it sounds like at least SC enjoyed it.
