Phantoms won again.
And Ratchuk and Maroon had big games again

NEWARK, NJ – Patrick Maroon and Michael Ratchuk both scored for the second time in as many games against the Lowell Devils as the Philadelphia Phantoms traveled to Newark and registered a 4-1 victory. In the first exhibition of the season for both clubs, the Phantoms hosted the Devils on Monday and came away with a 3-2 overtime win.

Maroon tabbed the lone first period goal and it came with his club operating on the power play. Planted to the left of Devils goaltender David Caruso, Maroon slung the puck to the front of the net. It took a Philly deflection off the skates of a Lowell defenseman and into the net at 11:50.

The Phantoms took a 2-0 lead just 2:39 into the middle period on Ratchuk’s second of the preseason. The nimble blueliner trailed a Rob Bellamy rush into the Devils zone. From the right wing wall, Bellamy looked off the Lowell defenders and dished the puck to Ratchuck in the high slot. He made good with a 40-foot low wrister for the 2-0 advantage.
