This is the second of eight games this season between the Sound Tigers and Phantoms. The first was on November 10th at Webster Bank Arena. The Sound Tigers earned a come-from-behing 3-2 victory thanks in part to a pair of goals from Anders Lee. Riley Wetmore also picked up a goal for the Sound Tigers. The Sound Tigers win was Kenny Reiter's first as an American Hockey League goaltender.
Phantoms player to watch
Petr Straka- Right Wing
AHL rookie Petr Straka has had a quirky season from a statstical standpoint. The winger has 10 points (five goals, five assists) and is off to a nice start to begin his professional career. All five of his assists came in the month of October, while his five goals were all scored during the month of November. Straka played three seasons in the QMJHL and was drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the second round (58th overall) in 2010, though he did not sign. He became a free agent in 2012 and signed an entry-level deal with the Philadelphia Flyers organization.
