Wilkes-Barre Scranton - April 6, 2014 - It was the Penguins vs the Tigers, Sound Tigers that is, tonight at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza. The Sound Tigers were eliminated from playoff contention last weekend and didn’t have anything to lose tonight The Penguins have things they are looking forward to and don’t need a spoiler, something that could possibly happen if they take Bridgeport to lightly.
The WBS Penguins came out hard against the Sound Tigers limiting them to just 2 shots on net for the entire first period while the Penguins put seven of their own on net.
Two of the WBS Penguins shots found their way past Kenny Reiter to give the Penguins a two goal lead. Bobby Farnham got the Penguins first tally just as a power play ended and Chuck Kobasew tallied the second goal. Kobasew’s goal was the result of an interception at the blue line he came in unassisted and buried it in the goal. First period ended WBS Penguins leading 2-0 Chuck Kobasew and Bruton did a little dance. Going to call this one even.
Second period action was end to end boys really getting after it WBS holding its lead and even adding a goal as Dominic Uher tallies a shorthanded goal for WBS making it 3-0.
Mathieu Coderre-Gagnon and Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond Do a little dance I think it was over whose name was longer and we all know its PL3 who has the longest name in hockey. Score this fight for PL3. Leaving the ice for the second intermission Pens holding a three to zip leadd.
Third frame more end to end action some big hits being handed out tonight from both sides WBS giving the Sound Tigers some opportunities to get things going on power plays but the WBS PK proves it’s worthiness keeping Bridgeport scoreless.
Tempers flare nearing the end of the third landing both Reid McNeill and Joe Finley in the sin bin making for the last 2 minute of regulation to be 4×4 hockey. When it was all said and done Peter Mannino would get the shutout and the Penguins the victory as WBS beats Bridgeport 3-0.
