Phantoms 669th Game
6:00pm Face-off
vs. Easton Faction

SUMMARY:

The West Michigan Phantoms etched another milestone into the team's rich history on Sunday, as the team captured the 400th victory in franchise history.  The Phantoms created a amazing comeback against Easton Faction on November 15th, 2015 to capture the 400th franchise victory.  A Trent Kik mid-second period goal would begin the rally, as the Phantom captain registered his second of the season to end three straight goals from Easton Faction.  Andrew Erickson would stage a late second period goal to keep the Phantoms in the hunt, trailing 2-4 after two periods.  In the third, it was all Phantoms as Andrew Erickson would stage his second and third of the night to complete the hat-trick, while Chris Laux would net his third of the season with just 41 seconds remaining to complete the Phantom rally.  The Phantom squad would hold tight during the final seconds to secure the fourth victory for the Phantoms this season and capture the historic 400th victory in Phantom history.  The 400th franchise victory would occur during the 669th franchise game played by the Phantoms.  The Phantoms have been involved in the West Michigan hockey scene since 2002 when the team began playing inline hockey at Rivertown Sports.  In 2006, the team shifted play to Cedar Rock Sports Plex before shifting to ice hockey in the summer of 2011.  The 400th victory would ironically occur during the 40th season of Phantom Hockey.
