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


The lede for this one is simple. If you don’t execute, you don’t win. Penguins have a boatload of talent on the team and got stronger with the addition of Bryan Rust tonight but did not score a single power play goal against the Phantoms penalty kill ranked in the bottom third in the AHL. They lost tonight at home for the first time all season by a score of 3-1. The ten game home streak is over. 

The Phantoms did score a power play goal and took advantage of a defensive breakdown in the second period for a lead they would never relinquish. Phantoms goaltender Anthony Stolarz, all 6’6 of him was outstanding, stopping 35 of 36 shots. 

Full recap to follow in a bit.
