RAPID RECAP – Pens LOSE 3-2

Two power plays in the third period after Lehigh Valley has just scored to go up 3-2 is the turning point of this one, a 3-2 loss for the Pens.

Providence won 2-0 over Belleville. It may all be meaningless at this point, Bruins go up seven on Wilkes-Barre for the four seed.

Lehigh Valley and Wilkes-Barre rematch Saturday in Allentown.

RAPID RECAP – Pens LOSE 4-2

Two power play goals by Toronto and two quick goals in the final minute of the second bury the Penguins today as they lose 4-2.

Tristan Jarry started his tenth consecutive game, but I don’t think you can credit the loss to that.

Pens stay fifth, five off Providence for fourth, and burn a game in hand on the Bruins and Phantoms. I think the other gets burned off Tuesday in Hershey.

RAPID RECAP – Pens WIN 2-1 (OT)

Bruins threw the kitchen sink at Tristan Jarry and it still wasn’t enough to beat the suddenly resurgent Penguins, who beat the Bruins 2-1 in overtime off a Adam Johnson backhand goal.

Point deficit to the fourth place Bruins is five. Two games in hand for the Pens over the Bruins who still don’t control their own destiny.

Oh Jake Lucchini scored his first goal of his pro career. He’s been dynamite with Jimmy Hayes and Joe Cramarossa.

RAPID RECAP – Pens WIN 4-3 (OT)

A tale of two teams tonight. The team in the first got flattened, out classes and out scored 2-0 in the first period and looked dead on arrival.

But in the second, the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins withstood a two man disadvantage for 70 seconds and then got a goal to cut it to one heading into the third.

They tied it in the third, went down one again, tied it again and got it to overtime where Sam Miletic score the overtime winner to give the Pens a 4-3 thrilling overtime victory.

RAPID RECAP – Pens LOSE 3-2 (SO)

They had 41 shots, got it to overtime on a two man advantage power play goal by Ethan Prow but what this team lacks is a finisher. After a thrilling overtime, Bobby Butler is the only shooter to score and the Pens lose another valuable point chasing a playoff spot.

Syracuse is in tomorrow. They lead the North and are a juggernaut.

RAPID RECAP – Pens WIN 4-1

Solid goaltending, defense and depth scoring. Easy, right? Penguins made it look that way Sunday afternoon after a 4-1 win over Rockford today. Tristan Jarry stopped 33 shots. Jimmy Hayes had a game, scoring twice in the second period. Scoreboard out of town was also favorable, with Providence losing in Hartford. It’s a game in hand that the Pens won.
