Daigneault Shines in Hershey Win
Bears Top Phantoms 3-0

Friday, February 23, 2007

By Brian Smith
Philadelphia Phantoms Correspondent

Maxime Daigneault recorded a 31-save shutout to lead the Hershey Bears to a 3-0 win over the Philadelphia Phantoms on Friday night before 10,171 at the Wachovia Spectrum.

Hershey opened the scoring at 12:08 of the first period. Dean Arsene ended up being the one cleaning up the garbage on a Hershey scoring opportunity that generated several shots. The puck slid out of a pack to Arsene in the left circle, and he lifted it past Scott Munroe for the 1-0 lead.

The Bears added a pair of insurance goals in the third period - a power play marker from Timo Helbling at 16:24 and an empty-netter from Alexandre Giroux with 26 seconds remaining.

Munroe took the loss with 29 saves on 31 Hershey chances.

The two squads will close out a home-and-home series tomorrow night when they meet again in Hershey, with a 7:05 puck drop at the GIANT Center. Individual tickets for all Phantoms games, including $8 tickets for children 14 and under anywhere in the building, are on sale now at or by calling 800-298-4200.
