RAPID RECAP – Pens WIN 3-0

First win for Casey DeSmith since November, his third shutout of the season, Penguins first win in 2020, and the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton apwnguins take down the Atlantic Divisions top team in the Hartford Wolf Pack.

Lots in a bit.

RAPID RECAP – Pens LOSE 2-1 (SO)

Back and forth, even affair that Hershey wins in the bottom of the sixth with Shane Gersich scoring the only goal of the shootout.

They deserved better, but it’s the fifth loss in a row and if they played like they did tonight, the wins will come around.

RAPID RECAP – Pens WIN 4-2

Anthony Angello scored three goals, Jake Lucchini scored shorthanded and the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins break out of their slump a bit and beat the listless Lehigh Valley Phantoms 4-2.

Dustin Tokarski relieved Casey DeSmith at the start of the third and will get credit for the win. More in what happened to DeSmith presumably in the full piece in a bit.

RAPID RECAP – Pens WIN 1-0

23 saves for Dustin Tokarski, a goal by Anthony Angello and the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins win 1-0.

This is with all the recalls (more in a bit on that) made earlier. Stark contrast from Wednesday, too.

RAPID RECAP – Pens LOSE 5-3

Wild one in Wilkes-Barre. Pens lose 5-3 to Texas in what became a contentious game late.

Pens jumped out to a 3-2 lead on back to back power play goals but it was a time out by head coach Derek Laxdal that kind of righted the ship for the Stars and settled his team down.

Emil Larmi deserved a better fate really, he took the loss in net.

RAPID RECAP – Pens LOSE 4-3

Well Texas is on hell of a run here of late.

Just the Stars second win on the road this season, they win 4-3 over the Penguins on Friday night.

Casey DeSmith took the loss in net, stopping 25.

Bad loss considering Texas is last in the Central and that division is in an entirely different conference.

RAPID RECAP – Pens WIN 5-2

It was a night of firsts for the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins as Matt Abt, Oula Palve and Anthony Angello all bagged their first goals of the season as the Penguins beat the Sound Tigers 5-2. For Palve and Abt, it was their first AHL goals of their careers. Hell, for good measure, Chase Berger participated in his first AHL fight as well with Parker Wotherspoon in the third period.

With the win, the Penguins stay tied with the Providence Bruins for tops in the Atlantic and go 9-2-1-1 in the month of November. They are normally good in December, so consider it a head start.
