Phantoms Spook Americans, 4-0

The Rochester Americans (21-12-2) paid a visit to the Lehigh Valley to face the Lehigh Valley Phantoms (18-18-1) on Saturday evening.

Thanks to a pair of power-play goals and a set of goals from Greg Carey, the Phantoms dominated the visitors.

Jean Francois Berube stopped all twenty shots he faced to record the shutout.

Carey started the evening by converting a nice setup from Morgan Frost and Cal O’Reilly on the man up with 5:48 elapsed.

Lehigh Valley doubled the lead at 13:32 with the second of the season from Chris Willman.

The period closed with the home team holding the lead of 2-0.

Carey added his second of the evening and his 12th of the season.

That would be the only marker of the second stanza and the Phantoms were cruising.

A second man-advantage goal, this one supplied by Mikhail Vorobyev (7) salted the contest for the Phantoms.

Rochester goalkeeper, Andrew Hammond allowed the four goals but made 19 saves.
