Playoffs?! Phantoms first round matchup set after win in regular season finale

August 28, 2019


Phantoms tonight. A win paired with a Chicago regulation loss would give Youngstown a BYE in the first round of the Clark Cup Playoffs. That bye COULD by crucial in the postseason—the Phantoms would get at least FIVE days off before their next game—but if they don’t get the bye—they would begin first round play in less than 48 hours. —Lets head down to the Covelli… —Scoreless early…Phantoms on the attack…Great saucer pass to LIAM ROBERTSON who goes backhand but DREW COMMESSO makes a great stop. —Later…JOEY ABATE out of the penalty box to JACK MALONE over to BRETT MURRAY but COMMESSO says no again! —Phantoms still searching…MATTHE W BARNABY JUNIOR with the toe drag…Fires the wrister but COMMESSO is there again…Holding the Phantoms scoreless. —To the 3rd…Youngstown with the lead and looking for more…Great work from BRETT MURRAY in the corner…Great pass to CONNOR MACEACHERN who backhands that into the top shelf…That makes it 4 to 1…Phantoms win, but bad news is, so did Chicago…So that means playoff hockey in Youngstown starts Monday night. Brad Patterson “WE ALREADY PLAYED A PLAYOFF SERIES. WE PLAYED IT LAST WEEK, WE PLAYED IT THIS WEEK AND THIS WEEKEND. THAT IS A HECK OF A HOCKEY CLUB WE JUST PLAYED, WE HAVE A BIG TEST IN FRONT OF US AND NOW IT IS UP TO US TO PREPARE THE RIGHT WAY.” Joey Abate “WE JUST HAVE TO KEEP PLAYING THE HOCKEY WE ARE PLAYING. WE ARE PLAYING A GOOD BRAND, QUICK, PHYSICAL, AND JUST PUTTING PUCKS IN THE BACK OF THE NET AND WE HAVE TO KEEP THAT UP.” Connor MacEachern “I MEAN WE ARE NOT WORRIED AT ALL. IF ANYTHING WE ARE EXCITED TO GET BACK AT IT ON MONDAY. WE HAVE A LOT OF BIG GUYS THAT ARE GOING TO STEP UP BIG FOR US SO WE ARE SUPER EXCITED TO START ON MONDAY.” TRT 26 To baseball where the Cleveland Indians did some roster shuffling before today’s game
