Allentown, PA - The Lehigh Valley Phantoms opened up their brief two game preseason schedule Friday night at PPL Center with a 6-1 loss to the Charlotte Checkers from the Western Conference. Free agent Greg Carey netted Lehigh Valley's only goal in that one.
But the Phantoms would have another shot at the Checkers Saturday night, and they'd have better results.
Lehigh Valley picked up goals from Will O'Neil, Corben Knight, Greg Carey, Chris Conner, and an empty-netter from Radel Fazleev. The Phantoms win, 5-2. They open up the regular season Saturday night against the Springfield Thunderbirds at PPL Center. Faceoff set for 7:05PM.
