Fighting Saints Win Playoff Opener

Fighting Saints Win Playoff Opener

The Dubuque Fighting Saints dropped the Youngstown Phantoms 3-1 in the first game of round one in the USHL Eastern Conference playoffs last night in Youngstown. Dubuque took command of the best-of-three series with a three goal third period as they shut down the Phantoms most of the night. The Phantoms were stifled on a five on three late in the third period as Dubuque killed it off and added an empty-netter towards the end of the game.

Dubuque outshot Youngstown 22-9 through two periods of play but found themselves down 1-0 after two periods.  Youngstown was 19-1 when leading after two in the regular season. Dubuque looks for the sweep tonight to advance to the conference semi-final round.
