BINGHAMTON -- After six games, the Adirondack Phantoms finally broke their winless streak with a 3-1 win over Binghamton on Saturday.

The Senators struck first; Chris Wideman scored a power-play goal 9:34 into the game. The Phantoms answered 1:09 later as Brandon Alderson scored his second goal of the season, assisted by Marcel Noebels and Kyle Flanagan.

Flanagan followed his first point of the season with his first goal of the season at 17:50 and the Phantoms took a 2-1 lead into the first intermission.

Jason Akeson added an insurance goal, his first of the season, at 15:48 of the second period. Akeson is now the team’s leading scorer with six points. Kris Newbury recorded his first point of the season with the primary assist.

After a slow, flat performance Friday night, head coach Terry Murray mixed up the lines on Saturday. Tye McGinn and Akeson have played on a line together every game they have played together since January. They were separated Saturday.

Murray went with a top line of Chris VandeVelde, Newbury and Akeson, a version of last Saturday’s top line that played very well. The second line was McGinn, Nick Cousins and Ben Holmstrom.

The Phantoms play three home games next week. They will look to build momentum off this win against three teams they have seen already this season: Springfield, Binghamton and Albany.

    Murray had the audacity to say they played better Friday than Saturday, claiming the Norfolk Goalie was just impenetrable! He was good, but that wasn't the whole story by any stretch. The strategy of "putting pucks on net" hasn't been working, the same results with any of Murray's coaching plans. I'm getting tired of watching them lose.

    A wins nice but we need a whole lot more then one after this disastrous start if a season.. Terry Murrey has to go!! Give the city a winning team and we'll have plenty of AHL teams calling looking to relocate. Mayor Diamond please put some pressure on the brooks to give us a future with the AHL.. Us Fans have given millions of dollars to the phantoms. We deserve something in return!
