Wilkes-Barre Scranton - December 5, 2014 -

It was the Lehigh Valley Phantoms coming to town to take on the WBS Penguins tonight at the mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza, a rainy cold December night but just be glad it was rain not snow and ice.


Tonight's game got off to a slow start at first both sides getting chances but nothin substantial. A little miscommunication between Zatkoff and Pouliot early on almost gave the Phantoms an early lead but they recovered.


WBS would get on the board first as Tom Kuhnhackl tallies one even strength. Tom Kostopoulos would put the Pens up two nothing at 18:26 of the first giving the Pens a little buffer. Stortini would get called for elbowing putting the Phantoms down man at the end of the first but WBS would not convert. Then Manning would get called for boarding giving WBS a 5x3 to end the period.


WBS would start the second with 1:07 of 5x3 then :22 of 5x4 but would have nothing to show for it. Tom Kostopoulos would get his second of the game putting him on HTA and the WBS Penguins up 3-0 just two seconds after the Pens power play subsided.


Conor Sheary would put the Penguins up 4-0 as he came streaking in from the bench and one times the puck past Zepp, this would be the end for Zepp as the Phantoms bring in Stolarz. That's how the second would end Stolarz stopping 2 for 2 leaving the ice WBS leading 4-0.


Lehigh Valley would tally a goal in the third but not until more than half way through Brett Hextall would get the Phantoms on the boards making it a 4-1 game but that would be it for Lehigh Valley Zatkoff and company would keep the Phantoms out the rest of regulation. WBS however would score again Derrick Pouliot would get the Penguins fifth and final goal going top shelf on Stolzar.


End results of tonight's game was the WBS Penguins coming out victorious over the Lehigh Valley Phantoms with a score of 5-1.
