Penguins getting off to a good start with good tempo and a few good chances Thiessen with two good stops early in the first. A little rough stuff in front of the WBS Penguins goal earns both teams matching minors looking at 4 on 4 for two minutes.
As the second gets underway Bortuzzo takes a slashing penalty putting the WBS Penguins down a man for two minutes. WBS gets a chance as Syracuse sits for a hook then Bennett takes a slashing penalty nullifying the power play.
Power plays for both sides but no score with just 6:33 left in the second WBS Penguins getting some nice chances on Tokarski but he sees them all.
WBS Penguins get a glorious chance on the power play but
can’t get it set up. WBS really having trouble this period no set up that power play no shots and worse yet when they get it in the zone nobody in front of the net, hope they figure it out with 6:53 to go they are trailing by two.
Penguins finally Get on the Board with one second left the play in regulation Trevor Smith puts it in but it is just too late to get any more.
WBS Penguins fall to the Crunch 2-1 Happy New Year to all our reader, users and colleagues see you all next year.
