The Amerks opened the month of March with a 5-2 road win over the Phantoms, four of those goals were scored in the third period. David Laliberte tied the game 2-2 at 9:55 of the third period off of a horrible defensive zone giveaway by Rory Fitzpatrick. The most impressive part of the game was that after that goal was scored to tie it up the team did not appear to lose confidence but instead took control and scored three more goals to win the game.
Evgeny Dadonov and Michal Repik each scored two goals and Chris Taylor had three assists.
I did not have time to write a complete postgame report so the press release about the game is below.
