RAPID RECAP: Pens LOSE 5-2
December 9, 2016Posted by on
Totally embarrassing loss by the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins tonight. Boasting an extremely healthy roster loaded with talent top to bottom, the Penguins lay an egg and lose 5-2.
Pens weren’t in this one from the beginning, and it was a lifeless mess of a contest.
Tristan Jarry started and cannot be blamed for the loss. Bears are great in transition and every goal was a defensive breakdown.
Jake Guentzel picked up where he left off, chipping in a power play goal in the first and adding an assist.
But every time the Penguins got close and you thought the comeback was on, the Bears edged ahead again.
A total mess, from top to bottom.
More venting in a bit.
