The Lehigh Valley Phantoms returned to the PPL Center in a winning fashion on Saturday night to the tune of a 3 to 2 victory over the Toronto Marlies. This game was interesting all the way through, ending with an insane 6-on-3 power play for the Marlies, but Lehigh Valley closed the door on all comers.
Scott Laughton continued his great season with a goal and an assist. Brandon Manning put up yet another power play goal, his 2nd in as many nights to give the Phantoms the lead late in the 3rd that they would hold on to.
Rob Zepp stopped 28 of the 30 shots he faced in another fantastic effort. Give some props to the Flyers international scout with Michael Raffl, Pierre-Eduoard Bellemare and Rob Zepp.
