Rats and Phantoms Both Win!

The Albany River Rats and Adirondack Phantoms picked up their first wins on the season Friday night.  The River Rats lit up the Portland Pirates 5-2, while the Phantoms squeaked by the Springfield Falcons 4-3.  Both teams stand at 1-1 on the season with Rochester coming to Albany and Adirondack going to Syracuse Saturday night.

Around the NHL the papa-Rats, the Carolina Hurricanes put up a seven spot on the Florida Panthers (parent club of the Amerks).  Matt Cullen had a goal and an assist.  Jussi Jokinen picked up a goal and two helpers as Carolina rolled against Florida 7-2.

One other game of note in a light night of action, the Dallas Stars and Calgary Flames taking to the ice.  Mike Ribeiro added a goal and an assist for the Stars, but two power play goals from Dion Phaneuf and Rene Bourque (both with their third on the season respectively) weren't enough as the Flames inched close but fell short 5-2.
