RAPID RECAP: Pens LOSE 5-3

This game fell apart in the second period when the Lehigh Valley Phantoms scored their fifth goal of the game with Tristan Jarry on his back being interfered with.

Referee Olivier Gouin allowed the goal to stand, which set off the sellout crowd here tonight in Wilkes-Barre very angrily, as well as the Penguins bench. A penalty filled second period followed. 

But the a penguins still had a whole period to play and battle through and ultimately fell short by a score of 5-3. 

All the big names, Sheary, Wilson, O’Neill, did all they could to keep the spend in it but couldn’t. They all had multiple point games. 

More to follow in a bit when I get home.

    I hope that effort from Olivier Gouin was just indicative of an off night, and not an example of what he normally does. I’m surprised the game did not deteriorate worse than it did.
