Prosvetov Shines as Saints Stonewalled in Loss

January 15, 2018 - United States Hockey League (USHL) - Dubuque Fighting Saints News Release

DUBUQUE, Iowa - Facing 53 shots on goal, and eight power play chances against, all while taking 28 minutes in penalties, Youngstown goaltender Ivan Prosvetov held the fort for the visiting Phantoms. The Russian made 52 saves, many of them spectacular, en route to a 3-1 win over the Dubuque Fighting Saints at the Mystique Community Ice Center on Saturday night.

The Saints hit the double digits in the shot count in all three periods, including an overwhelming 23-9 mark in the third period. Prosvetov's only blunder was on a pinpoint shot from forward *Taylor Schneider*, assisted by *Jacob Semik* at the 7:51 mark of the first. Otherwise, it was smooth sailing.

Forechecking pressure and speed drew many penalties against the Phantoms, but each time, they were thwarted. The power play came up empty on eight opportunities on Saturday, and failed to convert on four opportunities the night prior.

On the other hand, it was Youngstown's power play, given three chances to work with on Saturday, that struck, thanks to a scorching-hot scorer. Chase Gresock deflected a shot from the point taken by Andrew Petrillo that found a way through *Cole Weaver *to start the scoring. While the Saints tied it, the deadlock did not last long.

Gresock followed up his goal with another one a minute and 19 seconds after Schneider's tally. Following a defensive zone turnover, Mike Regush found Gresock lurking in between the circles and ripped a shot to the shelf to take the lead for the visitors, which stood up for good.

Tommy Parrottino completed the scoring for the Phantoms with an insurance goal just three and a half minutes into the third period.

The Dubuque Fighting Saints are back in action Thursday, January 18 against the Madison Capitols, which starts a streak of nine of the next ten games on the road.
