YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The Youngstown Phantoms are still alive in the Clark Cup Playoffs thanks to a 3-2 win Saturday night against the Chicago Steel to force a fifth and final game in the series for a spot in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Austin Pooley opened the scoring for the Phantoms off a deflection from a Micahel Karow shot to give Youngstown a 1-0 lead.
Coale Norris would make it 2-0 in the second after he hopped off the bench, took control of the puck and found the back of the net.
The Steel would cut the deficit to 2-1 but that’s when Evan Wisocky made it 3-1 and put the game out of reach.
Ivan Kulbakov stopped 16 of the 18 shots he faced in the win.
Game 5 will be Tuesday in Chicago with face-off slated for 8:05 p.m.
