Game Preview: Phantoms at Amerks, 12/7/2012


Tonight is the third of eight meetings between the Adirondack Phantoms and the Rochester Americans. The Amerks are 1-1-0-0 against the Phantoms this season, and 0-1-0-0 at home. There are many questions coming into this game, but the biggest question is whether or not the Amerks will show up tonight. Which is something that they haven’t done at home in a few weeks.
