The Waldeck Peterborough Phantoms bounced back from their Saturday night defeat by making themselves comfortable winners over the Sheffield Steeldogs.

Phantoms took the lead in the opening minute when Luke Ferrara was afforded time and space up high to skate in and rip an effort past Dmitri Zimozdra in the Steeldogs’ net.

The Dogs thought they’d levelled the game shortly after, but the play had already been blown dead by referee Juris Solovjovs.

Ivan Björkly Nordström had the period’s next best chance, but saw his breakaway effort kicked away by Zimozdra.

And the same man went close again moments later when he received a pass across the crease from Ralfs Circenis, but Zimozdra pulled off an emphatic stop to keep the score at 1-0.

Phantoms eventually found the way through, though, as Björkly Nordström skated in from the right and found the far corner with a backhanded effort.

Steeldogs grabbed a goal in the opening exchanges of the second period as Cam Brownley squeezed the puck between Tyler De La Bertouche and the goalpost.

But that brought Phantoms to life and they made it three through Austin Mitchell-King, who scored near side from the left circle after Circenis had taken the hit to make the play earlier in the move. He notched another just moments later, scoring from closer in after more good work by Circenis.

Phantoms had their fifth on 33:18 when the puck broke up ice behind the Steeldogs net: Sladkovsky retrieved it and played it straight out in front for the onrushing Ales Padelek to smash home.

Ferrara scored his second of the night just under a minute later with a one time slap shot from the centre of the zone.

Björkly Nordström rounded off a brilliant second period as he scored a lovely backhand effort after more good work between Mitchell-King, Circenis and himself

Sladkovsky made it eight with a one handed tuck, before going backhand, five hole on the powerplay for his second in as many minutes.

Ferrara completed his hat-trick at 45:56, tapping home after a good give and go with Duncan Speirs.

Sladkovsky rounded off his own hat-trick with Phantoms’ eleventh, producing the same one handed tuck which earned him his first goal.

Brownley grabbed his second of the evening with just over five minutes to play with a good shot into the top corner but it was a consolation on a comfortable night for the Phantoms.
