Didn't see this 7-3 Eagles loss coming, or did we?.


The 5-1 Eagles dropped their 2nd of the season in a 7-3 timely loss to the Phantoms.

"It's total coincidence that we lost this one at the same time that the red team was looking for a trade," said Eric Grasso. "We're all about transparency on this team."

Wilkinson and Grasso put navy up 2-0 before George Anderson tipped home his first of two on the day.

"It's nice to see this guy get more points than Gambale," said Rick Armand. "Well considering Gambale was picked before hm."

Anderson's 2nd of the day early in the 2nd on a rebound tied it briefly, as just a few seconds later Phil Andrusin sniped one to put navy back on top.

Melito fell and injured himself, and had to be helped off the ice. He returned and finished the game.

Brian Armand showed some Tripp Talbot type of concern.

"I don't think he should be playing," said Armand. "It's not that he's their best player, I'm just concerned for his safety."

Melito skated fine, but his hands suffered from the fall.

Wilkinson's 2nd of the game made it 4-2 as we headed to the 3rd.

Jimmy D. struggled mightily, but finally cashed in to make it 5-2.  Chewie scored to make it 6-2 and that was that.

Rick Armand scored a real soft goal midway through the third, and Chewie's 2nd with 1:44 left capped all the scoring.

"It's a good thing they won by 4 because I had 2 taken away from me today," said Andy Long.
