One night after an embarrassing 9-1 loss on home ice, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms (27-11-2) got back on track in Hershey against a struggling Bears team that has just one win in their last 10 games after the 5-1 Phantoms' win Sunday evening at the Giant Center.
The Phantoms scored a pair of goals 31 seconds apart late in the first period and never looked back. T.J. Brennan and Andy Miele had a game-high three assists each, Scott Laughton tallied a goal and an assist and now has eight points (five goals, three assists) in his last eight games and Greg Carey took over the league's scoring lead with his 22nd goal of the season and an assist in the win for Lehigh Valley.
Colin McDonald, Chris Conner and Jordan Weal also tallied goals while Alex Lyon stopped 25 of the 26 shots he faced to improve to 17-8-2 for a share of the league's lead for wins by a goaltender.
The Phantoms have a scheduled off day Monday before resuming practice Tuesday in preparation for their next game Wednesday night at home against the Binghamton Senators. The Phantoms then hit the road next weekend as their home rink - the PPL Center - gets ready to host the 2017 AHL All-Star Classic.
Quick recap of the action after the jump.
