DeSmith and the Penguins held off the Phantoms throughout the third period, and in the very last moments of the third period, Haggerty battled through the Lehigh Valley defenders guarding an empty net and record his second goal of the night.

BOXSCORE

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. – The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins extended their point streak to 11 games with a 4-3 victory over the Binghamton Devils on Friday night at Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (11-2-0-1) allowed three power play goals to Binghamton, but hung onto the victory thanks in large part to a 31-save performance by goalie Casey DeSmith.

The Penguins wasted little time finding the back of the net, as Ryan Haggerty tallied his seventh goal of the season just 12 seconds into the game.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton continued to doggedly pursue the Binghamton defense and force a bevy of turnovers throughout the opening frame, but a mid-period power play afforded the Devils the chance to pull even. Brandon Gignac took full advantage of that opportunity, scooping up his own rebound and lifting it underneath the crossbar.

Thomas Di Pauli put the Penguins back on top, 2-1, scoring with 17.2 seconds remaining in the first period.

Binghamton tied the game once again with a man advantage marker at 17:43 of the middle stanza. A shot fired by Joseph Blandisi redirected off of Bracken Kearns at the front of the net and trickled across the goal line.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton popped on top once again with a one-timer snipe by Adam Johnson at 9:55 of the third period. Christian Thomas scored on a breakaway a little over two minutes later, granting the Penguins a 4-2 lead.

Jacob MacDonald rallied the Devils to another power play goal, cutting the deficit down to one. However, DeSmith slammed the door shut on Binghamton’s comeback bid and improved his personal record to 8-0-1 on the season.

Ken Appleby recorded 14 saves while manning the crease for the Devils.

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins came away with a 4-3 overtime victory against the Providence Bruins Saturday night at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza thanks to another stellar performance by Ryan Haggerty.

Haggerty notched three points during the contest, including the overtime game-winner that earned Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (9-2-0-1) a point in the standings for the ninth-straight game.

BOXSCORE

The two division rivals showed their intensity from the get-go as Tom Sestito and Chris Breen decided to drop the gloves 33 seconds into the contest. One minute later, Ryan Fitzgerald gave Providence an early 1-0 lead on a breakaway.

The Bruins went up 2-0 at 8:01 of the middle frame. Colby Cave received a centering pass and elevated the puck over a screened Casey DeSmith. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton started to turn the tide a little more than two minutes after Cave’s tally, as Kevin Czuczman’s first goal as a Penguin cut the deficit in half.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton pulled even at 6:58 of the third period when another defenseman, Jarred Tinordi, also scored his first goal in a Penguins uniform. Tinordi launched the puck at the net with a slap shot following a feed from Haggerty, who notched his second assist of the game at that point.

Thomas Di Pauli put the Penguins up, 3-2, deflecting a shot from Andrey Pedan through the legs of Bruins goalie Zane McIntrye with just 2:23 remaining in the final frame.

With McIntyre pulled in favor of an extra attacker, the Bruins tied the game with 28.3 seconds left. Fitzgerald was credited with his second goal of the night and sent the game to sudden death overtime.

DeSmith turned aside 32 of the 35 shots he faced for the Penguins. McIntrye stopped 25 of 28 in net for the Bruins. The Penguins’ penalty kill was also perfect on the night, going six-for-six against the Bruins’ man advantage unit.

PENGUINS BEAT MARLIES, 4-2, IN CLASH OF CONFERENCE’S BEST

BOXSCORE

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – In match-up between the top two teams in the Eastern Conference, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins came from behind and defeated the Toronto Marlies, 4-2, on Wednesday night at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (8-2-0-1) now owns sole possession of first place in the Eastern Conference and has points in eight-consecutive games.

The Marlies notched the first goal of the night a mere 68 seconds into regulation when Dmytro Timashov redirected a shot from Martin Marinčin at the point.

The Penguins evened things up at the 10:58 mark in the first period when Andrey Pedan capitalized on a Marlies turnover in their defensive zone and blasted a slapshot past Toronto goalie Garret Sparks.

Late in the opening frame, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton authoritatively killed off a five-on-three man advantage that lasted 1:44 to keep the score tied going into the first intermission.

Despite peppering Sparks with a season-high 17 shots in the second period, it took until 18:48 of the stanza for the Penguins to find the back of the net, but that’s exactly what Ryan Haggerty did with his fifth goal in four games. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton wasted little time applying pressure on the Marlies’ defense to begin the third period, and Thomas Di Pauli tallied 1:49 into the frame, making it a 3-1 score in favor of the Penguins.

Nikita Soshnikov caught the Penguins in the middle of a line change, stepped to the slot, shot, and corralled his own rebound to cut the deficit in half and pull Toronto within one goal at 13:48 of the third. The Marlies never got any closer than that, though, as Di Pauli netted his second goal of the night with and empty netter.

Sparks set a new season high with 38 saves in a losing effort, while Casey DeSmith stopped 22 out of the 24 shots he faced to improve to 5-0-1 on the season and remain undefeated in regulation.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s next game is Saturday, Nov. 11, when it takes on the Providence Bruins at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (7-2-0-0) traded back-and-forth offense with the Phantoms all night, including a wild second period in which the two clubs combined for seven goals in those 20 minutes.

The Phantoms got on the board first when Tyrell Goulbourne tapped one in on the backdoor at 13:52 of the opening frame.

The zaniness in the second stanza started 1:43 into the period, when Gage Quinney gutted out a 1-1 tying goal amidst a net-front scramble. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton went up 3-1 with power play and shorthanded goals separated by only 2:16 of game time. Christian Thomas gave the Penguins their first lead of the game with the man advantage marker, while Jean-Sébastien Dea was responsible for the shorthanded tally.

On the same power play that Dea notched his first career shorty, Danick Martel pulled the Phantoms back within one. T.J. Brennan tied the game, 3-3, five minutes later. A mere 86 seconds after that, Mikhail Vorobyev put Lehigh Valley back on top, 4-3.

BOXSCORE

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins earned their first road win of the season and extended their winning streak to five games with a 5-2 triumph over the Bridgeport Sound Tigers at Webster Bank Arena on Saturday night.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (6-2-0-0) saw multi-point nights from a handful of players, but perhaps no performance was more key than that of Ryan Haggerty, who scored twice in his season debut.

Bridgeport wasted little time getting the scoring started, notching the game’s first goal just 1:19 into the contest. Steve Bernier took a breakaway pass from Ryan Bourque and fought off the Penguins’ backcheck to give the home team an early 1-0 lead.

Tom Sestito provided a response by beating Kristers Gudļevskis to the blocker side on a rebound at 13:27 of the first period.

The Sound Tigers tallied even earlier at the start of the second period, with captain Ben Holmstrom sneaking a sharp-angle shot through Tristan Jarry 52 seconds into the middle frame.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton received a pair of goals from players registering their first goal of the season to take a 3-2 advantage into the second intermission. Adam Johnson buried his first AHL goal on a power play at 7:33 of the second stanza, and Haggerty outraced the Sound Tigers defense to give the Penguins their first lead of the night with three minutes before the break.

The Penguins staved off a heavy press from the Sound Tigers late in the third period, and actually extended their lead to 4-2 off of a picture perfect passing play that culminated in a Christian Thomas tap-in at the crease with 2:52 left in regulation. Haggerty tucked an empty netter for his second of the night.

Jarry started between the pipes for the Penguins for the second night in a row, and made 18 saves for the victory. Gudļevskis turned aside 20 of the 24 shots he faced.

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins won the first match-up of the season series in the I-81 rivalry as they beat the Hershey Bears, 3-2, on Friday night at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza.

The Penguins (5-2-0-0) relied heavily an impressive 30-save performance from goalie Tristan Jarry to capture their fourth-straight victory.

BOXSCORE

After the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton penalty kill unit staved off three consecutive Hershey power plays, Jean-Sébastien Dea notched the game’s first goal on a delayed penalty, extra attacker situation at 13:05 of the first period. Dominik Simon notched his 100th AHL point by earning the secondary assist on Dea’s opening tally.

With 3:46 remaining in the second period, the Penguins doubled their lead when Teddy Blueger’s wrist shot dipped underneath Adam Carlson’s glove and found the back of the net. However, the Bears reduced the deficit back down to one a little over a minute later thanks to a shorthand goal from Jeremy Langlois.

Riley Barber netted a third period equalizer 6:34 into the final frame of regulation.

Simon scored the game-winning goal at 10:52 in the third period off a rebound from a Kevin Czuczman shot attempt. Despite a heavy press by Hershey in the final 10 minutes of regulation, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton never surrendered their 3-2 lead thanks to the stellar, crunch-time effort by Jarry.

The Penguins penalty kill ultimately denied the Bears on all seven of their man advantage opportunities throughout the contest. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s power play, on the other hand, went one-for-three.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s next game is tomorrow, Saturday, Oct. 28, when it visits the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins went to the their first shootout of the season on Saturday night and came away with a 3-2 win over the Hartford Wolf Pack at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza.

The Penguins (4-2-0-0) overcame a two-goal deficit to force overtime and won the best-of-three shootout on a lone goal by Jean-Sébastien Dea.

BOXSCORE

Hartford got the scoring started with a power play goal from Scott Kosmachuk at the side of the cage just 2:59 into the opening frame. The man advantage was effective once again for the Wolf Pack as Vinni Lettieri made it 2-0 at 11:17 of the first period.

After that, Casey DeSmith battened down the hatches and denied the Wolf Pack on 26 of the 28 shots he faced throughout the contest.

The Penguins answered the Wolf Pack’s second power play goal 34 seconds later when Gage Quinney was the beneficiary of a loose puck amid a wild, net-mouth scramble. Quinney has scored a goal in all three of his AHL games so far this season.

Jarrett Burton evened things up, 2-2, with his first goal of the season with 4:26 left in the second period.

Both teams were held scoreless in the third frame. Hartford goalie Alexandar Georgiev stopped a 16-shot barrage from the Penguins in the third period, while DeSmith was required to come up with several stops in the final minutes of regulation. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton outshot Hartford 5-0 in overtime, but five extra minutes of three-on-three hockey still did not yield a winner.

Dea played the hero’s role for the Penguins, scoring the only goal of the shootout in the second round.
