WILKES-BARRE TWP., Pa. — The first goal of a hockey game matters about as much as any other goal a team may score, when you hash it all out. But when it comes for the other team after you’ve controlled the first 20 minutes, it’s tougher.
Tack on another one 63 seconds later, like the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins did Friday night against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers? The weight doubles.
McGrath, Guentzel Spark Penguins In Opening-night Win Over Hartford
WILKES-BARRE, TWP. — The local kid dropped the gloves not once, but twice, the top prospect racked up four points, and the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins opened their 18th season in the American Hockey League on a high note.
Led by Jake Guentzel’s goal and three assists, the Penguins turned in a thorough thrashing of the Hartford Wolf Pack on Saturday, skating off the Mohegan Sun Arena ice 6-2 winners in front of 6,159.
WILKES-BARRE, TWP. — After a lackluster first two periods, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins found their legs — and scoring touch.
The result was a three-goal third period and a 4-2 come-from-behind win over the Hershey Bears on Saturday at Mohegan Sun Arena in the second of three scheduled preseason games.
Pat McGrath, Oskar Sundqvist, Reid Gardiner and Tim Erixon all found the back of the net in support of Casey DeSmith, who turned away 24 of 26 shots in net.
Thomas Di Pauli suspects he might beat former Notre Dame teammate Bryan Rust in a race around the rink.
Even if his skating speed fails him against one of the Penguins' fastest wingers, Di Pauli believes it will give him a good shot to push someone else out of a roster spot.
