PENGUINS SHUTOUT SENATORS, 3-0

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – Scott Munroe turned aside all 25 shots he faced to help the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins to a 3-0 win over the Binghamton Senators on Tuesday at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza. The game remained a scoreless tie until the 8:33 mark of the second period as Nick Petersen got two chances on a loose puck in front of the Binghamton net and whacked it home for this third goal of the season. The Penguins would take a three-goal cushion into the locker room after they tallied twice in the last two minutes of the frame. Paul Thompson made it 2-0 with 1:23 left in the second, deflecting Matt Rust’s shot through the pads of Mike McKenna. Brian Gibbons added another goal for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton 1:12 later when he one-timed a drop pass from Jason Williams into the top left corner of the net. Rust and Williams each finished the game with two helpers, while Petersen registered a goal and an assist. It was Munroe’s second shutout of the season, but his first win of the year as he was the goalie of record in a 1-0 shootout loss to the Connecticut Whale on October 9. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton went 0-for-5 on the power play and 7-for-7 on the penalty kill. The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins hit to road to play the Portland Pirates on Friday, November 19 at 7:00 PM.
