A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins


A quick blurb here of the Penguins 3-1 win tonight over rival Hershey. Two first period goals by Jayson Megna and Conor Sheary, 26 saves out of Matt Murray was enough to get the win tonight. You can check out the box here. 

It seemed that the Penguins had an answer for everything that the Bears threw at them tonight. A dominating first period to open, bend but not break second that saw the Bears close to within one on a Mike Moore shot but minutes later Dominik Uher cleaned up a Carter Rowney shot to make it 3-1 then a dominating third period of defensive shutdown hockey. 

Penguins pull within three of the Bears with the win. They burn off that game in hand tomorrow with Sunday’s afternoon game with Hartford.

Providence, the 5 seed, won 5-0 in Springfield tonight.

Tomorrow’s opponent Hartford was in Binghamton and won 4-3. 

Full recap will follow later on.
