1. REMATCH ON HOME ICE

This is the second meeting of the season between the Phantoms and Albany Devils, and first at home for Adirondack… The Devils skated to a 5-1 win on Oct. 26, however Adirondack owns a lifetime record of 12-1-1-0 against Albany when playing on home ice… Last season, the Phantoms went 7-3-0-0 against the Devils.

2. POWER PLAY = WINS
In games that the Phantoms have converted on the power-play they own a perfect 3-0-0 record… All five of Adirondack's losses have come when the team fails to score a power play… Through eight games so far, the Phantoms are averaging six power-play opportunities a game.

3. THE BEGINNING AND THE END
The Phantoms enter tonight's game, the ninth of the season, having allowed the first goal in each game so far… The Phantoms have also scored 14 of their 19 goals this season in the second (7) and third (7) period (73.6 percent).

4. Player to watch PHANTOMS: Harry Zolnierczyk
Harry Z scored the Phantoms lone goal in Friday's loss to Syracuse, and heading into tonight's game has recorded a goal in each of the Phantoms' home games this season… He is tied for the team lead (with Brayden Schenn) in even-strength goals (3).

5. Player to watch DEVILS: Jeff Frazee
The Albany Devils net minder owns a 1.63 goals-against average and .919 save percentage through three games so far this season, posting a 1-1-1 record… Frazee stopped 14 of 15 shots in the Devils' shootout loss to Connecticut last night… Should he get the start on back-to-back nights, he will be looking for his second straight win over the Phantoms after he stopped 22 of 23 shots in the Devils' 5-1 win over Adirondack on Oct. 26.
