Former Wheeling Nailers and current Philadelphia Phantoms forward David Laliberte is giving the Spectrum a heck of a closing act.
Fourteen games ago, the Phantoms were down 12 points in the chase for the final playoff spot in the East Division. Since then, Philadelphia has gone 10-2-0-2 to overtake Binghamton by one point for the last spot, and in that stretch Laliberte has 8 goals and 3 assists and is plus-11.
“We want to make the playoffs. We have to push. We have to win every game right now,” he said. “We just keep battling.”
