Phantoms hold on for 4-3 over Chicago

Posted: Updated:

BENSENVILLE, Illinois. – The Youngstown Phantoms battled through a penalty-riddled third period to emerge with a 4-3 win over the Chicago Steel Friday night.

Kyle Connor gave the Phantoms (30-21-0, 60 point) a 4-1 lead early in third, but the Steel (21-27-4, 46 points) were able to draw within a goal thanks to eight power-play opportunities – and a combined 85 penalty minutes between both teams – over the final 20 minutes of regulation.

Phantoms head coach Anthony Noreen said, "I don't know if I've ever been part of a hockey game like that. I was as worked up as anyone else, but what I kept trying to remind myself and the guys was, ‘Calm down. Focus on the task at hand. We've got a hockey game to win.'

Noreen added, "Our penalty kill was phenomenal tonight. A big part of that was guys killing penalties for the first time – forwards playing defense to kill off a 5-on-3 against because we ran out of defensemen. It was just an absolute battle for our guys."

Austin Cangelosi led the way for Youngstown with his second straight three-point game (one goal, two assists), while John Padulo added a power-play goal and Eric Sweetman notched one short-handed. Goaltender Sean Romeo proved to be the Phantoms' best penalty killer turning away 33 shots to pick up his 25th win of the season.
