Phantoms staying; Carter possible


    The Adirondack Phantoms will be staying in Glens Falls, N.Y., for at least two more seasons.

     Phantoms co-owner Jim Brooks made the announcement Friday and told the Post-Star the team will contribute at least $50,000 toward the cost of installing a video board and new sound system in the arena, which eventually will have another home team.

    The Phantoms will move to a new 8,500-seat arena in Allentown, Pa., which the team hopes is ready in 2013-14.

     Adirondack, the Flyers' AHL affiliate, is 20-31-3 and sits seventh in the eight-team East. The Phantoms have played much better lately after an abysmal start.

   Darroll Powe and Dan Carcillo, each of whom missed Thursday's game with the flu, returned to practice Friday. Carter, who also sat out Thursday with the flu, was not at practice Friday because of the death of his grandfatrher.

    Flyers trainer Jim McCrossin said all the team's players had flu shots, but noted they weren't protected from certain strains.

    Carter returned to Canada, but is "possible" for Saturday against Buffalo, GM Paul Holmgren said.

    The Flyers own 6-3 and 5-2 wins over the Sabres this season.

     Coach Peter Laviolette may go with Sergei Bobrovsky on Saturday because he is fond of using Brian Boucher against the New York Rangers, the Flyers' opponent on Sunday.
