The Lehigh Valley Phantoms (14-19-1-4) defused the Laval Rocket (20-15-3–1) in a Saturday tilt in the Lehigh Valley.
Alex Lyon was the star of this one with a spectacular 37 save performance.
The affair was scoreless until 16:21 of the middle stanza when Kyle Crisculo converted a James DeHass and Connor Bunnamon passing play to light the lamp behind Laval’s goalkeeper, Keith Kinkaid.
Lehigh Valley expanded their cushion at 3:59 of the third off a Tyler Witherspoon tally and it was a question of whether Lyon and the defense could hold the Rocket scoreless.
Charles Hudon was responsible for 7 of the 37 Laval chances.
Kinkaid, in the nets, turned away 19 of the 21 Lehigh Valley shots.
The Phantoms get to sleep in their own beds and take on Cleveland on Sunday afternoon.
