Penguins Weekly Rewind

Wednesday, Jan. 19 - PENGUINS 1 vs. Lehigh Valley 3

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton did not allow a goal at even strength but was still bested by its turnpike rival's three-goal third period. Jordy Bellerive notched the Penguins' lone goal.

Friday, Jan. 21 - PENGUINS 5 vs. Toronto 1

The Penguins bounced back from Wednesday's loss with an all-around dominant performance. They received a pair of goals and an assist from Alex Nylander, while Alex D'Orio earned his long overdue first win of the season with 21 saves.

Saturday, Jan. 22 - PENGUINS 3 vs. Toronto 2 (OT)

Alex Nylander stole the headlines again as Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton pulled off a dramatic comeback win. Down 2-0 going into the third period, Valtteri Puustinen started his team's rally early in the final frame. Nylander scored late in regulation to force OT, then won the game during a power play in extra time.

Monday, Jan. 24 - PENGUINS 5 vs. Cleveland 1

A trio of first-period goals by Matt Bartkowski, Félix Robert and Kyle Olson chased veteran goalie J-F Bérubé. Rookie reliever Jet Greaves fared no better, having been bested by Anthony Angello and Kasper Björkqvist in the middle frame.

The Week Ahead

Tuesday, Jan. 25 - PENGUINS at Hershey
