Thomas scored just his second goal of the season 38 seconds into the contest as he beat Backlund to the left-pad side for a 1-0 lead. After a power-play goal by Rowe tied the game, Kenndal McArdle scored his fourth goal in six games to give Rochester a 2-1 lead. The Amerks’ power-play goal was assisted on by Joe Callahan and Mike Kostka at 4:58. The Phantoms evened the game on the power play at 10:29 as Rowe scored his second of the game. Legein and Kalinski earned their second assists of the contest.

In the second period, Kalinski and Rowe hooked up for the third time at 8:49. This time it was Kalinski who scored on the power play from Rowe and Marc-Andre Bourdon for a 3-2 Phantoms’ lead. Before the end of the second frame, Robak scored his first professional with a blast underneath the crossbar to even the game at three apiece. Fellow rookie Eric Selleck assisted on the goal at 18:12.
Robak then netted the second of his career, and second of the night, at 7:58 of the third period. Clay Wilson and Thomas assisted on the power-play tally. Thomas added an empty-netter with in the final seconds to give the Amerks their third straight win.
