With a 2-1 win at Rochester, the Phantoms now have back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

Adironack built off it's first complete-game win, a 4-0 victory over Albany last weekend. In which, it led at intermission for the first time.

"This win was huge for the team as we were able to string a couple together," Cal Heeter said.

Garrett Roe scored the go-ahead goal just under eight minutes into the third period. He took a slapshot from above the right circle, which bounced off Rochester defenseman TJ Brennan's ankle and past goaltender David Leggio.

Danny Syvret had tied the game just over nine minutes into the second period, with his first goal of the season. Matt MacKenzie took a penalty for cross-checking at 8:30 and Syvret ripped a shot off from the right point 32 seconds later, through traffic.

Rochester's lone goal came 6:22 earlier. Zac Rinaldo took a hooking penalty to set up Brennan's power-play goal. The defenseman took a slap shot from the center point and Heeter got a piece of it, but not enough as the puck trickled across the line.

"There was no real screen or tip, but it just snuck through under my arm and above my leg," Heeter said.

The last time these teams met, a 6-2 Rochester win, featured 29 penalties. This one looked like it could go similarly as Marc-Andre Bourdon and Marcus Foligno dropped the gloves in the first period. Oliver Lauridsen and Nick Tarnasky did tangle in the third, but Rochester and Adirondack only totaled eight infractions.
