5 minutes in to the first just one shot on goal for either team and  Zatkoff stopped it.  Bortuzzo would get called for an elbow at 13:18  giving the Marlies the first power play of the game. Marlies on the power play just :31 left and their goalie Scrivens gets called for interference creating. 4 on 4 the. 1:29 power play for WBS Penguins   No goal either way.

Bortuzzo sits again at 9:09 for a hold putting the WBS Penguins penalty kill on the ice again still sitting at 0-0 on the scoreboard.

Nothing doing on the power play at the at start of the second but Dupuis misses a wide open corner. WBS Penguins would go on the PK again giving Toronto another chance but WBS held its ground killing it off.

Lots of dancing in the crowd tonight but not so much on the ice, both teams seem to be really getting after it but nothing to show for it with only 7:38 left in the second still no score Toronto out shooting WBS Penguins 20-14 at this point.

Ben Scrivens comes out to meet Ferriero on a WBS breakaway gambles and draws the wild card just poking the puck away about three quarters of the way out to the blue line. Would have been a sure goal if he missed.

WBS comes out looking for a goal early in the third seemed to pick up the play just a bit  Zatkoff still making the hard saves look easy

Acton breaks the scoring silence scoring the first of the game beat  Zatkoff stick side making it 1-0 Toronto bit the penguins aren’t turning in yet.  Simon Despres evens it up at one each on a nice backhand beating Scrivens glove side.

Later in the third  Bennett gets run from behind Farnham goes to set things right and Deschamps sneaks away over the wall Deschamps get 2 and 2 Farnham draws 2 giving WBS Penguins the power play where Riley Holzapfel would score putting the Penguins up by one.

Pens score again but waived off ref blew whistle for penalty putting Toronto on the power play for what would be the rest of the period.Pens kill it off keeping it 2-1 Penguins. That would be the game fans WBS pulling out the win over the Marlies a well earned win for the boys.

About B.Pettit

Lead Journalist - Owner - Editor I developed PensFans4Ever back when the Penguins first came to Wilkes-Barre. It was started to keep the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins Fans along with the Pittsburgh Penguin Fans up to date with happenings as far as who is up and who is down. We Started out as just a message board where we would post news and information and other fans would post their feelings and any information they had. We then turned into a dot com and started making a true web site, at first it was just news, we incorporated a message board into the site. By the third year we added a chat feature. This enables the fans to gather in a live chat room during games that they can’t be at. We try to make it as informative as possible. Since everything that has happened to us we have turned our site into a blog but keeping with what we started out to do not just giving you our thoughts and interpretations we incorporate official team news and press releases.
