Portland Pirates edge Phantoms 2-1

Back at it after a postponed game due to weather, Portland Pirates out special teamed the Phantoms for a 2-1 victory Saturday night.

Every goal last night were via the power play.  After a scoreless first period the Pirates scored quickly in the second period when Brandon Gormley wristed one past the sprawling Scott Munroe which would turn out to be the game winner. Assisting on the goal was Michael Stone who also added his own power play goal late in the same period to send the Phantoms grasping for answer during the second intermission.

Adirondack made it exciting late in the third period with a power play goal of their own making the last two minutes worth getting on the edge of your seat. Once again the Pirates give Coyote’s fans something to quench their thirst for hockey during the lockout. Many outlets to satisfy such hunger with minor league, World Juniors, and NCAA.

Mark Visentin allowed only one goal on 25 shots. Another stellar performance of his during the current streak of wins in the month of December.
