RECAP | IceCaps Ghosted 4-2 by Phantoms St. John's wraps up Road Trip Tomorrow with Lehigh Valley Rematch Posted by Geneva Hayward on
ALLENTOWN, PA – The St. John’s IceCaps had a close game but fell 4-2 to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms at the PPL Center Friday night.
Bobby Farnham struck first for the IceCaps on a redirect of Julien Brouillette’s shot from the point. Daniel Audette broke an 11-game scoreless streak picking up the other helper on the first goal. The Phantoms came back with a tally from Travis Sanheim to end the first period tied at one apiece.
Charles Hudon scored his fifteenth of the season to give the IceCaps a 2-1 lead in the second period on an unassisted breakaway, before Lehigh Valley’s Chris Conner potted the equalizer late in the second.
The third period went scoreless until the Phantoms’ Mark Alt potted the go-ahead tally with just 3:53 left in the final frame. Cole Bardreau would add an empty-netter to seal the win for Lehigh Valley.
Charlie Lindgren was solid in net for the IceCaps stopping 33-of-36 shots, as well as a penalty shot in the third period.
