Looking ahead
2014 recruit J.J.Piccinich (photo-right) scored the deciding shootout goal as Youngstown edged Dubuque, 5-4. 2015 recruit Maxim Letunov’s (photo above) backhander—assisted by Piccinich—midway through the third period gave the Phantoms a 4-2 lead, but the Saints rallied and sent the game to overtime when former Terrier Alexx Privitera scored on a one-timer with ten seconds left in regulation. Letunov, who also had an assist, improved his scoring line to 14-19-33, while Piccinich,  who received a 5-minute major for  the first fight of his USHL career, now has 47 points (25G, 22A).
