Chirps from Center Ice

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


A three goal outburst in the second period for about 90 seconds was all the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins needed tonight as they take Game 1 of the best of five series by a score of 5-1. Kasperi Kapanen had two of the three goals in the outburst. 

While this one was never really in doubt, we have all been here before and I have blogged my share of collapses through the years. But not this time. Crunch scored one late in the second to make it 4-2 and maybe a game but Wilkes-Barre got one in the third from Danny Syvret to make it 5-1 and iced it away. 

Game 2 goes tomorrow night in Wilkes-Barre at 7:05

Full recap in a bit.
