Also, Peterborough are masters of the quick counter attack on their own ice and the visitors were a little fortunate several times as the tactic was working well for the Phantoms in the first period; only thwarted by Matt Smital in goal, or by some wayward shooting. Sean Norris secured a lead in the final seventeen seconds of the first period, on a powerplay.
The Jets had a better middle stanza but had difficulty beating the excellent Dan Lane in the home net. Phantom's levelled at 34:21 through Jordan Liddell as a bench minor saw Slough shorthanded, but a rapid counter, Norris again, restored the lead.
The third period was dominant for the Jets, with returnee Timo Lindgren in fine form. At the final whistle, the celebrations began, and a great, noisy crow of Slough fans celebrated with the team.
