RAPID RECAP – Pens WIN 2-0

Another close one. This time, no comeback needed because Casey DeSmith was dialed in and stopped all 35 Syracuse shots sent his way. Pens win 2-0 off goals from Andrew Agozzino in the first and a shorthanded goal as Syracuse was pressing in the third by Zach Trotman.

Lots more in a bit.

RAPID RECAP – Pens WIN 5-4 (OT)

Misdirection by the head coach, more penalty killing woes, an OT hero in the form of Joseph Cramarossa who has two goals and the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins scrap with the San Antonio Rampage and win 5-4 in overtime.

Lots more in a bit.

RAPID RECAP – Pens LOSE 5-3

The San Antonio Rampge scored three power play goals tonight. Their power play is third in the AHL.

After a hot start, the Pens fizzled and lost a special teams battle in an otherwise close contest.

Emil Larmi got the start but didn’t finish, he picked up a knock late in the second. Casey DeSmith player the third.

Reinforcements in the form of a bunch of acquisitions on the as way as well from Pittsburgh. It’ll get better, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Full piece in a bit.

RAPID RECAP – Pens LOSE 4-3 (OT)

They fell down 2-0, got up and tied it at two then went ahead before getting scored on late and again in overtime. Pens lose 4-3 in overtime.

Seems they may have an early closing problem. That game was there for the taking late on and they let it slip through.

Jon Lizotte has a hell of a game after looking awful last night in Allentown. Stefan Noesen scored again, Anthony Angello has the at the time go ahead goal. There’s potential, but you have to play a full 60.

Cedric Lacroix scored a pair of goals. Pens got three quick ones in about 3:25 in the second.
