Wilkes-Barre Scranton - December 26, 2014 -

Welcome to holiday hockey 101, It's called the Christmas break. It is something you have to experience as a coach to appreciate. When I was a wrestling coach I used to dread the meets just after the holidays it was like everyone forgot what they had to do or just couldn't get moving to do it. And so it went for the WBS Penguins tonight as they took on the Binghamton Senators up in Broome County.


It was a lot of good end to end hockey both squads getting some chances. WBS would give the Senators the first power play of the game on a bench minor for too many men. Binghamton would not convert on the power play but would score later in the period.


The Penguins could not find the handle to get the even up goal. WBS would be outshot for the first period and trailed the Senators 1-0 at the buzzer. The Pens looking a little rusty coming off a four day break for the holiday.


Second period action saw Both Jeff Zatkoff and Scott Greenham getting some nice saves during the second period Jeff Zatkoff keeping the Penguins within reach just one goal down.


Tom Kostopoulos and Patrick Mullen do a little dance from the sound of it was kind of even, both boys would sit for five.


WBS Penguins were outshot in both the first and second period but still only trailed by one goal at the end of the second.


WBS Penguins would start out the third with a great chance as Bingos Alex Grant sat in the bin for a hook, but could do nothing with it.


WBS Penguins give the Senators a chance on the power play but kill it off, only to get caught sleeping at the blue line as the Senators come in two on one and get the even strength goal making it 2-0 Ryan Dzingle with the tally.


The Senators catch the Pens again not long after the second goal WBS slow to react gives the Senators a perfect chance and Ryan Dzingle goes on HTA and puts Binghamton up 3-0.


WBS gets caught on a slow change just after John Hynes takes a time out and almost give Binghamton a fourth goal, Jeff Zatkoff does all but stand on his head to keep it just 3-0.


Alex Boak and Matt Puempel do a nice dance towards the end of the period Puemplel getting more shots but Boak getting more quality, setting the tone for the next meeting on January 2nd.


That would be that fans the WBS Penguins having a tough time of it up in Binghamton the Senators taking it to them and ending up the same score as the last time we played there but the opposite outcome, last time we won 3-0.
