Berube solid in goal as Phantoms down Penguins
The Lehigh Valley Phantoms got two-point performances from Andy Andreoff and T.J. Brennan Sunday afternoon at PPL Center in a 3-1 victory over the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins to complete a preseason sweep.
Andreoff, Nic Aube-Kubel, and Mikhail Vorobyev all found the back of the net while goaltender Jean-Francois Berube was stellar in his first action as a Phantom, making 22 saves.
Andreoff opened the scoring with a power-play tally after redirecting a slapshot from forward Greg Carey past Penguins goalie Emil Larmi at the 19:26 mark.
Berube was solid in his first 40 minutes of preseason action, stopping all 13 shots that the Penguins sent his way. Berube spent the 2018-19 season with the Cleveland Monsters, posting a 3.01 goals allowed average over 43 games.
Early in the third period Andreoff assisted Aube-Kubel to make it 2-0, and then late in the period Vorobyev restored the Phantoms’ two-goal edge after Ryan Haggert tallied for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
