May 5, 2015     By Brian Coe   When the puck drops for Game One between the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and Manchester Monarchs on Wednesday night, more than 165 hours will have passed since the Pens last saw live game action.  A 3-0 sweep of the Syracuse Crunch in the first round, coupled with the Monarchs being pushed to the limit by the Portland Pirates, combined to give Wilkes-Barre that big break between games.   There are two trains of thought as to a long layoff… read more

By Brian Coe   He’s known around these parts as ‘Mr. Penguin,’ and rightfully so.     Tom Kostopoulos has appeared in more games (478), scored more goals (138), put up more assists (206) and recorded more points (344) than anyone to ever pull on a Pens sweater.    The 204th overall pick in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, Kostopoulos spent parts of his first five seasons in Wilkes-Barre, while also appearing in 79 games with the Pittsburgh Penguins.  During… read more

April 28, 2015 By Brian Coe The Pittsburgh Penguins defensive corps was beset by injuries during the 2014-15 season, and as the team closed in on the playoffs, it saw the loss of two of its biggest cogs - Kris Letang and Christian Ehrhoff. But those unfortunate circumstances led to opportunity for Taylor Chorney.   Now in his seventh professional season, Chorney was a huge part of the top-rated defense in the American Hockey League this season, leading Wilkes-Barre/Scranton with a plus-26 rating… read more

BLACK AND GOLD BITS - April 27, 2015

  By Brian Coe   DEFENSIVE NEWCOMERS HOLD THEIR OWN   Defenseman Danny Syvret entered the 2015 postseason with 693 professional regular season games on his resume (59 in the NHL, 634 in the AHL), but had only appeared in 19 postseason contests (5 with Hershey in 2007-08; 4 with the Philadelphia Phantoms in 2008-09; 10 with the Philadelphia Flyers in 2010-11).  And when he found the back of the net midway through the third period, the veteran blue liner picked up his first career… read more

April 20, 2015 By Brian Coe The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins put the 2014-15 season to bed with a 5-1 win against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms on Sunday evening in Allentown.  It was an impressive defensive display for the team, even with three of the squad’s regular blueliners (Scott Harrington, Brian Dumoulin and Taylor Chorney) on recall to the Pittsburgh Penguins, and two relative newcomers (Steven Shamanski played his fourth game with the team, Sean Escobedo his second) in the lineup.… read more
