Phantoms continue long road trip

GLENS FALLS -- The month of March finds the Adirondack Phantoms largely on the road. Ten of their 15 games are played away from home.

Friday’s game at Binghamton is the third of seven consecutive games on the road. The Phantoms head from there to Hershey, Pa., and then on to Norfolk, Va. They then return home for a day of practice before heading back on the road to Connecticut.

That presents an issue for the Phantoms, who are an even 14-14 at home but 9-17 on the road.

Head coach Terry Murray said that it might be as simple as a stress on home games for other teams.

“Everyone puts more value on the points and it’s just a harder, grittier (game) and the value of home games is stressed by every coach,” he said.

Murray also said that Wednesday night was an example of the Phantoms not having their “A game” on the road as they got off to a slow start and lost 6-3 to Portland.

The Phantoms held on to the puck too long and made decisions slowly, which created mistakes.

    Terry Murray has nothing to offer. Either tough questions are not asked or he refuses to "get real" about this team's failure to execute. Whose fault is that? I would argue it's his fault. He never offers any explanation for his team's short coming's. individuals seem to do better when they move up to the Flyers. Do the player's concentrate more on individual effort vs team effort? Why can't this team score goals? Why does the defense take half the first period of every game to wake up? We have veteran goaltenders, why is the goaltending so shaky? Its time that Murray address these issues. He has done a lousy job this year and needs to be called on the carpet by someone.
