April 14, 2021 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins News Release

An overtime thriller at home and controversial call on the road has Wilkes-Barre/Scranton at 7-8-3-2

Weekly Rewind

Saturday, Apr. 10 - PENGUINS 5 vs. Binghamton 4 (OT)

An absolutely thrilling game between the Penguins and Devils ended on a familiar note, as Jordy Bellerive buried the overtime game-winner for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. The Devils got out to a 3-1 lead in the second period, before a diving play by Félix Robert pulled the Penguins within one with 22.2 seconds left in the middle frame. Cam Lee's first goal of the season tied the game, 3-3, and a shorthanded goal by Chase Berger put the Penguins in a brief lead before an extra-attacker goal by the Devils sent the game to OT. Bellerive's winner was his team-leading eighth goal of the year.

Sunday, Apr. 11 - PENGUINS 0 at Hershey 2

Bellerive and the Penguins had a power-play, game-tying goal wiped out in the third period of their latest visit to Giant Center. Bellerive collected his own rebound and thrust it to the back of the net roughly seven and a half minutes into the third period. The goal did not count. A later empty-net goal sealed the win for Hershey.
