Wilkes-Barre Scranton - October 8, 2013 - First period Penguins netting one goal and getting one waved off Jokinen would get the Pens out in front on the second Penguins power play if the game. A short time later as the Penguins were buzzing Super Duper would put one past Ward but get it recalled for a kick in. Glass and Harrison do a little dance draw fight majors but advantage goes to neither side.
Second period starts with a nice Goal by Martin taking the rebound off the back wall and shuffling it past Cam Ward. Pens getting some good chances this period Scuderi looking great Niskanen goes to the bin putting the Pens a man down for two minutes the Canes looking to catch up, Pens holding them to 0 SOG so far.
With 6:36 left in the second period Eric Staal would get a deflection goal putting the Hurricanes on board making it a one point game Pens still leading now 2-1. Second period ends still 2-1 Pens holding the canes off and looking toward the third frame.
Canes step it up coming out with momentum from the second period goal scoring in the first few minutes of the third period making it two all, but the Pens bounce right back on a nice goal from Jokinen a great pass from Malkin to Jokinen sets it up and what do you know its 3-2 Penguins.
Tanner Glass would make it 4-2 on a second effort goal of the face off a nice backhander the boys really making things happen. Jussi Jokinem gets his Hat Trick with a nice wrist shot from just inside the zone to make it 5-2Penguins.
MAF and the Penguins would hold in for a 5-2 Victory over the Canes.
