Munroe's 47 saves fuel victory by Phantoms

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - Scott Munroe stopped 47 of 49 shots, including all 28 he faced in the third period, to lead the Phantoms to a 3-2 win over the Binghamton Senators last night in an American Hockey League game.

Munroe set a Phantoms record with the 28-save period.

The Senators owned a 28-5 advantage in shots in the final period, tying a franchise record for shots in a period.

But they failed to score after right wing Niko Dimitrakos gave the Phantoms a 3-2 lead 36 seconds into the third.

Dimitrakos finished with two goals for the Phantoms (15-22-1-2), and Eric Meloche also had a goal.

Philadelphia rallied from a 2-1, first-period deficit.

Josh Hennessy and Jeff Heerema each had a power-play goal for Binghamton, which saw its winless skid reach six games.

Kelly Guard stopped 24 of 27 Phantoms shots.
