RAPID RECAP – Pens LOSE 1-0

They had 8 shots through the second, tried to get them all back in the third, pushed and pushed in the third, fell into penalty trouble and Chase Priskie’s power play snipe late on stood up as the game winner. Charlotte snaps the Penguins six game win streak. 22 saves for Alex Nedeljkovic with a shutout. Dustin Tokarski stopped 26.

More in a bit.

RAPID RECAP – Pens WIN 2-1

Feels like they could have lost this one.

As close as you like for a game, Pens win 2-1 on goals from Sam Miletic in the first and David Warsofsky in the third. 31 saves from Dustin Tokarski. Pens fifth win in a row, allowed just three away goals during the home stand.

RAPID RECAP – Pens WIN 4-1

They are rolling.

Penguins win 4-1 over Springfield. Two goals by Andrew Agozzino in the first, a hell of a penalty kill display in the second and 41 saves by Casey DeSmith.

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.
