Weekly: As All-Star Break Approaches, Penguins Travel to Bridgeport and Binghamton

January 22, 2019 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins News Release

Weekly Rewind

Friday, Jan. 18 - PENGUINS 4 vs. Rochester 5

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Rochester brought a high-octane affair to Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza, and the Penguins attempted to stage a third-period comeback that fell short. Anthony Angello tallied twice for the Pens, and Sam Miletic notched an assist in his return from injury.

Saturday, Jan. 19 - PENGUINS 3 vs. Hershey 5

Special teams were the name of the game on Saturday, as the Penguins fell to their bitter rival. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton scored twice on the power play, but Hershey racked up three man advantage markers and a shorthanded goal en route to victory.

Monday, Jan. 21 - PENGUINS 2 vs. Lehigh Valley 1 (OT)

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton ran into a hot goaltender on Monday afternoon, but would not be denied in the end by gutting out a low-scoring, OT win. After two periods of scoreless hockey, Lehigh Valley took a brief lead before Adam Johnson evened things up. Ethan Prow's 12th goal of the season allowed the Penguins to triumph in overtime. The Pens out-shot the Phantoms, 46-28.

The Week Ahead

Friday, Jan. 23 - PENGUINS at Bridgeport

The Penguins get set for their second school day game of the season and their first of two at Bridgeport. This midweek battle is set for a 10:30 a.m. puck drop at Webster Bank Arena, where the Penguins are 0-2-0-0 this season. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton did win its first school day game of the year back on Nov. 14 at Springfield, the day on which Tristan Jarry scored the first goalie goal in franchise history.

Saturday, Jan. 26 - PENGUINS at Binghamton

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton's last game before the All-Star Break is also the club's last visit to Binghamton this season. The Pens are undefeated all-time against the Devils (7-0-0-0).
