Familiarity not an issue in Phantoms-Bears playoff series

Familiarity not an issue in...

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - 75 miles is all that separates the PPL and Giant Centers. The Phantoms and Bears are close in proximity. Far apart when it comes to amiability.

The Phantoms and Bears went at it 12 times this season, with Lehigh Valley posting a 7-4-1 record in the series.

Lehigh Valley outscored Hershey by 7, going 3-2-1 against the Bears at home, which is where their first round Calder Cup playoff series starts Friday night.

Scouting reports won't be an issue for either team.

Phantoms coach Scott Gordon doesn't mind that these two haven't met since early April.

It allows time for some new luster and fire to build up for this series.
