Mountain Top - April 21, 2016 -

It was Providence getting the jump tonight sinking a short handed goal to start, WBS not able to get anything going on the power play this period. Providence would go up two zip on a WBS turnover coming in on Casey DeSmith and beating him clean.


Steve Oleksy and Chris Casto did a dance as well as Josh Archibald and Seth Griffith. Pens started to self destruct nearing the end of the first but pulled it out in the second.


Tim Erixon would get the Pens off the ground with a howitzer blast from the blue line bringing the Penguins scoring machine to life. Daniel Sprong would get his first AHL goal getting down and dirty in front of Jeremy Smith making it a 2-2 game, and it was on. WBS would pull ahead 3-2 on a Tom Kostopoulos goal just past the halfway point of the game creating some tension between the two clubs, tempers would rise but the refs kept things under control heading off the ice.


Third period started on a bad note as the Bruins came right out and evened it up just 54 seconds in. The Penguins would get some nice chances in the third to get the go ahead goal but would not be able to get it done. At the end of regulation it was still knotted up at three heading to OT.


Coming into the OT. You had a feeling that something good was going to happen, but it didn't come as fast as last night. The Providence Bruins had a few chances but the Penguins snuff them out.


The Penguins ended up scoring when Kael Mouillierat knocked Smith over after beating him to a puck that Smith was playing outside the paint and the Penguins scored on the empty net. Referee initially signaled goal but consulted with the rest of the on ice officials and ruled no goal because of contact with Smith.


Just a short time later the Penguins did it again, putting the puck behind Smith for the win tonight it was Daniel Sprong who put the Penguins on top 4-3 and ahead in the series 2-0
