Phantoms Shut Out Bears Onto Game 4

The Phantoms staved off elimination on Wednesday night with a season-saving 2-0 victory over the Hershey Bears at PPL Center. Hershey still leads the best-of-five series, two games to one, with Game 4 set for Saturday evening in Allentown. Cal Petersen made 22 saves for his first career playoff shutout, and Emil Andrae and Olle Lycksell provided the offense with a pair of early power-play goals. Cooper Marody assisted on both tallies.

It marked the first playoff shutout by a Phantoms goaltender in more than 16 years, since Scott Munroe blanked the Albany River Rats in Philadelphia’s Game 7 win on Apr. 29, 2008. Hunter Shepard stopped 20 of 22 shots in the loss for the Bears, who have not scored a goal at PPL Center in their last 175 minutes and 17 seconds of play. The Phantoms will look to tie the series and send it back to Hershey for game 5.
