Admirals, Yip Slip by Penguins, 3-2, in Overtime

October 31, 2014 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins News Release

NORFOLK, Va. - Brandon Yip scored his second goal of the game at the 1:14 of overtime Friday night, giving the Norfolk Admirals a 3-2 overtime win over the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins at the Norfolk Scope.

Yip's goal finished off a night where scoring opportunities were at a premium with the Admirals outshooting the Pens 18-16 (17-15 in regulation) in the game.

The Pens got on the board first in the game with Dominik Uher's goal at the 4:56 mark of the first. It was the first of the year for Uher, who tipped home Barry Goers' shot.

Yip's first of the night at the 16:37 mark of the first knotted the game up at 1-1. Yip put a rebound past Pens' goaltender Matt Murray after the Pens failed to clear the zone.

After a scoreless second frame, Scott Harrington weaved through the Norfolk zone and found Tom Kostopoulos right in front of the Admirals' net, where he deposited his second goal in as many games.

The lead lasted for just 34 seconds though, as Norfolk evened the score with an unassisted Chris Wagner goal.

The Pens pick up a point in the OT loss (5-4-1-0, 11 points) while dropping to second place in the East Division.

The two teams will square off again tomorrow in Norfolk, as the Pens look to pick up their fourth and fifth points during the current three-game road trip.

The Pens return home again next Friday, November 7, when they will host the Hershey Bears at 7:05pm. Individual tickets for all Penguins home games are available at the Mohegan Sun Arena Box Office, online at, or by calling 800-745-3000.
