Center Josh Hennessy buried two goals, but the Philadelphia Phantoms scored three goals in a 3:47 span to propel past the Binghamton Senators by a 5-2 final on Tuesday night at Wachovia Spectrum.
Following a scoreless first period, winger Denis Tolpeko gave the Phantoms a 1-0 lead early in the second stanza. Eric Meloche extended the lead to two goals, and Jared Ross finished the scoring surge with his eighth tally of the season.
Hennessy answered back less than a minute later, as the All-Star center buried his 24th of the year past netminder Scott Munroe.
Midway through the second period, Hennessy netted his 25th of the year to cut the lead to one goal. The goal gave Hennessy a new career-high, as he eclipsed the 24 goals he scored last year in Cleveland.
The Phantoms took advantage of a 5-on-3 power play midway through the third period. Matt Ellison buried his ninth goal of the year to make it a 4-2 contest. Philly added a late empty-netter in the final minutes.
Three Senator defensemen had assists on the night, while Jeff Glass made 29 saves in the loss.
