The Whale received a late game-winner from defenseman Pavel Valentenko, as well as three assists from Brendan Bell. Kris Newbury assisted on two of the Whale’s goals. The win pushed the Whale (17-8-1-3, 38 points) to five points ahead of their closest competition in the Northeast Division, the Albany Devils, and six points ahead of Adirondack. “It was a good way to finish up, it’s almost an elongated segment before you leave for the break,” said Whale head coach Ken Gernander. “It’s nice to finish the game with a big goal and a win.” “It’s a gritty game and good teams find ways to win when they’re shorthanded,” said Bell. “I guess we’re a good team.” Mike Testwuide had put the Phantoms up 1-0 at 4:07 of the first period, finishing off a nifty passing play with Tyler Brown and Tye McGinn.
