Pre-game vs. St. John's 11/28

Greetings from Glens Falls Civic Center, where the Adirondack Phantoms (9-8) are getting ready to take on the St. John's IceCaps (9-9-0-1). Third meeting of the season between these two teams. They split the first two last month in Newfoundland. It's an Eddie-Money goalie match-up, with Eddie Pasquale in goal for St. John's and Scott "Money" Munroe between the pipes for Adirondack.

A win tonight would be Adirondack's fifth-straight home win, which would be the second-longest in Adirondack Phantoms' history. They won seven in a row late in 2010-11. It would also tie the AHL season high for a home win streak. Binghamton, who'll be here Friday, has also won five in a row.

Matt Ford is a healthy scratch for the fourth time in five games. Shane Harper is back in the lineup and takes Ford's spot the second line with Brayden Schenn and Tye McGinn. Eric Wellwood, a healthy scratch for three straight, returns and takes Mike Testwuide's spot on the fourth line.

This week, Munroe mentioned he almost re-signed with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, but it fell through. He's on a roll lately, but the guy the Penguins got to replace him is also having a pretty good month.

St. John's will be without Derek Whitmore tonight -- or for the rest of the year. The veteran forward signed in Germany, apparently unhappy with the opportunity he received with the IceCaps.

Albany, Saturday's opponent, won't have Adam Henrique. A Calder Trophy finalist last season, he will be be out four-to-six weeks after tearing a ligament in his thumb. He'll have surgery tomorrow.

A bizarre story has been circulating the Internet today about Grand Rapids' Riley Sheahan, who was allegedly "super-drunk" and wearing a Teletubby costume when police pulled him over last month.

One year ago today, the Phantoms' "We Built This City" video hit the web.
