SEASON IN REVIEW: JANUARY

By Samantha Patterson and Mike O’Brien With a roster that was decimated with call-ups and injuries in December, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins were amazingly able to post a record over .500 during the month and remain just one point behind first place Binghamton Senators.  While many of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s offensive mainstays such Brian Gibbons, Andrew Ebbett and Jayson Megna remained up in Pittsburgh, the team looked to its defense to carry it through the month of January. … read more

SEASON IN REVIEW: DECEMBER

By Mike O’Brien and Kristian Stefanides Heading into December with a 13-5-1-2 record, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins had successfully navigated some rough seas during the previous month.  A rash of injuries on the Pittsburgh Penguins roster saw key players such as Andrew Ebbett, Brian Gibbons, Jayson Megna and Simon Despres spend significant time in the NHL.  No one could foresee that the waters would get much more treacherous for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.  The injury bug continued… read more

GOERS GIVES BACK

Being a professional hockey player has given Barry Goers a chance to see cities throughout North America – from Abbotsford to Anchorage, from Boise to Bridgeport. But it was a non-hockey trip last summer that has had the biggest impact on Goers so far. After his a playoff run with the Central Hockey League’s Denver Cutthroats came to an end, Goers decided he wanted to do a little traveling, while helping the lives of those less fortunate. “Last summer I really wanted to reach out… read more

PENS NOT LOOKING TO THE PAST VS. PROVIDENCE

Brian Dumoulin was one of the key ingredients of last year’s history-making comeback against the Providence Bruins.  A rookie blueliner during the 2012-13 season, Dumoulin picked up three points, including the game-winning goal, in Game Five against the Bruins; netted a power play goal to send Game Six to overtime; and assisted on Chad Kolarik’s decisive tally in Game Seven to help turn a three-games-to-none deficit into a series victory for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. But Dumoulin isn’t… read more

PENS PREP FOR GAME THREE

There are no unimportant games come playoff time.  But there are some games that are more important than others. Could Wednesday night’s Game Three between the Penguins and Senators be one of those? Taking a look at last season’s Calder Cup Playoffs, teams that won Game Three of a series went on to win 11 of the 15 matchups – that included three three-game sweeps in the best-of-five Conference Quarterfinals. But don’t weigh head coach John Hynes down with statistics.… read more

FRIENDS AND FOES

The world of professional hockey is a small one.  Players often cross paths as teammates and opponents, trading good natured ribbing one day in the locker room one day before trading punches on the ice another. Coaching circles are much the same, as is evidenced by the two men guiding their clubs in one Stanley Cup playoff matchup. Pittsburgh’s Dan Bylsma and Columbus’ Todd Richards will lead their teams against each other in the first round of the NHL postseason.  But eight… read more
