I’m not sure what Connor Murphy said or did to provoke this fight, but whatever it was sent three Adirondack Phantoms in a mad dash to jump the Portland Pirates’ defenseman. Next thing you know, a full line brawl breaks out on the ice.
Portland may have won the game 2-0, but the Phantoms won the war.
Once he makes it out of the pile, Murphy is going to get absolutely tagged by Tye McGinn, one of the handful of recognizable names from the Flyers’ minor-league affiliate involved the scrum. Kris Newbury—who once felt McGinn’s wrath while playing for the New York Rangers—lays out some other poor soul. Brandon Manning throws a few punches before his opponent loses interest.
Goaltender Cal Heeter had gone to the bench for an extra attacker, but he jumped back on to the ice twice to get involved. They’re calling it the first goalie fight in Phantoms history.
In all, the two teams combined for 299 penalty minutes for the game. Adirondack charged with 179 of those.
Very entertaining stuff. Can’t wait until the Phantoms move a little closer to home. They’re slated to open a new arena in the Lehigh Valley next season.
