Phantoms 669th Game

6:00pm Face-off

Vs. Easton Faction
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.
