YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The Youngstown Phantoms erupted for four goals in the second period to cut down the Muskegon Lumberjacks 6-3 Saturday night at L.C. Walker Arena. Six different players scored for the Phantoms (6-11-0, 12 points), who snapped a four-game slide.

Austin Cangelosi, Kyle Connor, Sam Anas and John Padulo each notched a goal and an assist while Luke Stork and Markus McCrea also found the back of the net. Goaltender Sean Romeo turned away 39 shots to secure his fourth win of the campaign.

"There was not one person that didn't pull us in the right direction tonight – from start to finish," head coach Anthony Noreen said. "It was a team game and a team win."

Joseph Cox got the scoring started for Muskegon (11-5-1, 23 points) at the 9:30 mark when Frederik Tiffels hit him on the backdoor for an easy tally. Less than two minutes later, however, Anas knotted it back up for Youngstown with his sixth goal of the season. Zach Evancho moved it to Anas in the left corner and the right-handed shooter skated out along the goal line a fired it right inside the near-side post, just above Lumberjacks netminder Kevin Lindskoug's shoulder.

"That might have been the biggest goal of the game – just to get us right back in," Noreen said. "Even when we were down one, we never veered away from the game plan and the system."

Cangelosi, who was playing in his first game since winning gold with Team USA at the World Junior A Challenge, was awarded a penalty shot just 17 seconds into the second after he was hauled down from behind on a breakaway. The Estero, Fla. native came in calmly against Lindskoug and fired it right above his left pad to put the Phantoms in front.

Ryan Lowney found Stork on the backdoor at the 6:48 mark to make it 3-1. Then McCrea notched the eventual game-winner at the 13:06 mark on a power play when he parked in front of the goal and redirected a point shot from Lowney.

"Markus did the job he was supposed to do on the power play," Noreen said.

Adam Gilmour brought Muskegon back within two a minute and a half later with a power-play goal of his own. But with just 1:26 remaining in the period, Padulo skated a puck in the zone and dropped it for Connor, who rifled it five-hole to give the Phantoms a 5-2 lead heading into the third period.

Muskegon blue liner Michael Brodzinski beat Romeo 4:07 into the third period with a point shot through a screen to make it a two-goal game once again. But less than two minutes later, Padulo put his former team away with his second goal of the season.

"That was the icing on the cake, to beat your old team," Padulo said. "It's a shot in the face to them. They didn't want me back, but I'm happy to be here with Youngstown and I'm happy to get the win."
