RAPID RECAP – Pens LOSE 6-2

Woof.

They went down 4-0, battled back to make it 4-2, but go down 6-2. Filip Lindberg lasted about half the game before getting chased. They had 1:57 of two man they couldn’t do anything with.

A recap of this monstrosity will follow shortly.

RAPID RECAP – Pens WIN 4-2

RAPID RECAP – Pens WIN 2-1 (OT)

It took them forever, but they finally got the knockout blow they didn’t seem to find in regulation.

Kasper Bjorkqvist scored in overtime to sent the Penguins home 2-1 winners in overtime against a pesky and quick Hartford Wolf Pack club.

More soon.

RAPID RECAP – Pens LOSE 4-1

They looked about as disjointed and discombobulated as you could today.

A 4-1 loss, an opposing goalie who played very well and no puck luck. You’ll have like games like these.

RAPID RECAP – Pens WIN 2-1

35 saves from Casey DeSmith and two goals by two guys named Kevin (Roy and Czuczman) and the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins take down the Hershey Bears 2-1.

Kill was 4/4. No power plays for the Pens tonight. A complete effort.

RAPID RECAP – Pens LOSE 5-3

Scoreline wasn’t as close. Lehigh Valley rolls to a big 5-3 win over the Penguins Saturday night in front of a capacity crowd.

41 shots, and a guy making his AHL debut picks up a win for the Phantoms. Emil Larmi didn’t have it tonight, allowing 3 goals on 7 shots at one point, and the Pens could never recover from there.
