Devils still perfect and off to best start in 23 years
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Kyle Palmieri scored his seventh goal in four games, Keith Kinkaid stopped 24 shots for his second shutout and the New Jersey Devils continued their perfect start, beating the Dallas Stars 3-0 on Tuesday night.
Late pickup Jean-Sebastien Dea tallied for the third straight game and Blake Coleman added a goal as the Devils (4-0) remained the NHL's only unbeaten team. The 4-0 start is their best since 1995-96.
Palmieri scores 2, Kinkaid stops 21, Devils rout Caps 6-0
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Sharp in Europe, the New Jersey Devils played equally well at home.
Kyle Palmieri scored twice, Keith Kinkaid made 21 saves and the Devils came back from a season-opening win in Sweden by routing the Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals 6-0 Thursday night in their first game at a packed Prudential Center.
Marcus Johansson, Blake Coleman, Jean-Sebastien Dea and Brian Boyle also scored. In their previous game, the Devils beat Edmonton 5-2 overseas last weekend
The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins have likely had enough of North Division opponents. One weekend after the Rochester Americans and Utica Comets beat the Penguins, the Syracuse Crunch did the honors Saturday night with a 3-1 decision. It’s the team’s third straight win over Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this season. Freddie Tiffels scored his second goal of the season for the Penguins, who fell to 31-16-4-1 and will look to rebound with a win at 3:05 p.m. today against the rival Hershey Bears at...
The first period was much the same story.
But unlike in Friday’s game, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins answered right back against division rival Providence.
Gage Quinney and Jarred Tinordi scored in the second period to erase a 2-0 deficit, and Jean-Sebastien Dea potted the lone shootout tally in the Penguins’ 3-2 victory over the Bruins on Sunday at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center.
Gage Quinney and Jarred Tinordi scored in the second period to erase a two-goal deficit, and Jean-Sebastien Dea potted the lone shootout tally in the Penguins’ 3-2 victory over Providence on Sunday at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center. Casey DeSmith made 32 saves in goal and three shootout stops, helping the Penguins improve to 30-13-3-1. Providence blitzed the Penguins again in the first period, getting goals from Tommy Cross and Adam Payerl and piling up a 13-5 shot advantage. But the Penguins...
WILKES-BARRE TWP. — One night after Clark Donatelli earned his 100th win as Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s head coach, the Penguins were eager to congratulate him Saturday night.
But before the Penguins even had an opportunity to flash Donatelli’s achievement on the video board, Jean-Sebastien Dea had Donatelli on his way to win No. 101.

But before the Penguins even had an opportunity to flash Donatelli’s achievement on the video board, Jean-Sebastien Dea had Donatelli on his way to win No. 101. While some of the 7,591 fans at Mohegan Sun Arena were still finding their seats, Dea scored only 26 seconds into a 2-1 Penguins win against the Lehigh Valley...
Dea scores 1st NHL goal, Penguins beat Hurricanes, 3-1
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Not much more than a month ago, Dominik Simon, Jean-Sebastien Dea and Casey DeSmith were playing minor league hockey in Wilkes-Barre for the AHL affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Fast forward to Tuesday night, when that unlikely trio carried Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions to an important win.
WILKES-BARRE TWP. — Penguins forward Jean-Sebastien Dea had assists in six of his last seven games entering Saturday’s contest against the Belleville Senators at Mohegan Sun Arena.
Turns out he was able to continue that torrid offensive pace and also snap a personal drought in a big way.
The 23-year-old ended a 15-game scoring drought with two goals, leading the Penguins in a 6-0 romp over an overwhelemed Belleville team that has now been outscored, 12-1, in its last two contests.
Lehigh Valley Hands Another Loss To Pens
WILKES-BARRE TWP. — The effort has been there for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. But it seems like any small mistake has resulted in a goal for the opposing team, and that’s why frustration is beginning to mount after the Penguins’ tenth loss in their last 14 games. “Overall, effort in our 1-on-1 battles and continuing to hunt pucks and block shots (is there), and we got a lot of O-zone time,” head coach Clark Donatelli said of Wednesday’s defeat, a 5-4 loss to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms at...
WILKES-BARRE TWP. — Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins forward Garrett Wilson played Friday’s game against the Milwaukee Admirals with a heavy heart after his mother passed away last week. And after recording his first career AHL hat trick in the opening 13:05 of the Penguins’ 5-4 overtime win at Mohegan Sun Arena, the 26-year-old couldn’t help but think he had a little extra guidance on the ice. “It was a tough couple weeks there,” Wilson said. “Those goals were for her, and I feel like she was...
Pens Deliver In High-pressure Shootouts
WILKES-BARRE TWP. — It was the kind of game any hockey fan would pay good money to see. When the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins faced the Lehigh Valley Phantoms on Nov. 3, they waged a thrilling 65-minute track meet that featured, among other things, a seven-goal second period, four lead changes, 12 power-play opportunities and even a fight. The Penguins were fortunate enough to emerge victorious that night, 6-5, thanks to Christian Thomas’ goal against Dustin Tokarski in the shootout. However,...
It almost wasn’t fair that a game with as much back-and-forth action as Friday’s was decided in a shootout.
But that’s what happened to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and Lehigh Valley Phantoms at the PPL Center, and Christian Thomas put the official bow on a wild contest.
Thomas scored in the third round of the shootout and also had a goal in the second period, helping the Penguins escape with a 6-5 victory to stand alone in first place in the Atlantic
