The Adirondack Phantoms returned to Philadelphia for this night game at the Wells Fargo Center but fell to the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins 2-1 in a game they led until late into the 3rd period. 

Brad Thiessen started in net for the Penguins and Cal Heeter for the Phantoms. 

The Phantoms opened the scoring on the power-play at 9:59 of the 1st period. Marcel Noebels had the goal.  The Philadelphia Flyers drafted him in the 4th round, 118th overall, of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

The Phantoms goalie Heeter was the story as he made a number of tremendous saves.  For a while it looked like he was going to steal a victory for them.  They also had a strong defensive effort in front of him.  They employed a suffocating penalty-kill midway through the 3rd period easily overcoming a double-minor and another minor.

But the Pens stunned them when Bobby Farnham snapped in a shot at 13:34 of the last stanza.  Then with the Phantoms still reeling Brian Gibbons quickly put in another one to give the Pens a 2-1 lead.  They were able to preserve this lead and slipped out with a strong come-from-behind win.

It was another tough loss for the Phantoms as they rank 15th out of 15 teams in the Eastern Conference.  Nevertheless they got strong fan support in their one visit this season to the City of Brotherly Love.
