This is the third meeting of the season between the Phantoms and Albany Devils and second at the Times Union Center… The Devils earned one of their two victories on the year over the Phantoms in their 5-1 win on Oct. 26, however the Phantoms won the last meeting in the season series by shutting out the Devils, 4-0 on Nov. 3... The Adirondack Phantoms are 13-5-1 all-time against the Albany Devils.

The Phantoms earned a 2-1 win at Rochester last night to keep two trends continuing: Adirondack went 1-for-3 on the power play, marking the fifth straight game that when scoring a power-play goal they have won the game... Overall the Phantoms are 5-0 when scoring a PPG, and 0-5 when not… The Phantoms have also had four of their six road games decided by one goal, going 3-3-0-0 in that scenario.

Albany's offense has struggled lately, posting just one goal in last night's 2-1 shootout loss at Providence… They have now recorded just two goals in their last four games, one of which came at the hands of a 26-save shutout by Scott Munroe on Nov. 3… However in that span, the Devils have averaged 33 shots per-game (132).

4. Player to watch PHANTOMS: Danny Syvret
Syvret factored into both Phantoms goals in last night's 2-1 win at Rochester by scoring his first goal of the season and setting up Garrett Roe's game-winning tally in the third period… The Phantoms alternate captain has recorded two shots or more in eight of the Phantoms 10 games so far this season.

5. Player to watch DEVILS: Jacob Josefson
Josefson leads the A-Devils in scoring with four goals and six points in nine games, while also ranking second in team plus-minus (+5)… Last time Albany faced the Phantoms at home, Josefson posted a goal and an assist to help the Devils to a 5-1 win.
