Weekly: Penguins Establish Eight-Game Home Win Streak, Now Hit the Road for Four in a Row
Friday, Feb. 2 - PENGUINS 4 vs. Hershey 1
Andrey Pedan led the Penguins in a variety of ways, starting with an energizing fight to ramp up his team five seconds after the first puck drop. He kicked off the Pens' four unanswered goals with a tally at the end of the first period, then scored again in the third. The Penguins improved their season record against the Bears to 6-0-1-1.
Saturday, Feb. 3 - PENGUINS 2 vs. Lehigh Valley 1
Tristan Jarry shined in a tight game against the rival Lehigh Valley Phantoms. Making 34 saves, Jarry enabled the Penguins to maintain a lead the entire game following first period goals from Jean-Sébastien Dea and Daniel Sprong. Jarry captured his sixth-straight win in the AHL.
