WBS gets the first power play just 1:27 into the first as 4 sits for a cross check. Pens don’t convert then Barton takes an interference penalty putting Manchester on the man advantage for two minutes.
WBS Penguins kill of the penalty Payerl and Megna nearly get together for a goal what a nice setup. Score remains 0-0 Barton headed to the box again not a good thing but the WBS Penalty Kill held. Then the Monarchs Campell would sit for interference giving the WBS power play another chance but nothing doing end of the first WBS was being out shot 5-4.
Second period almost half over before there was a score, both sides really getting after it but it would be Morrow who puts a wrist shot past Mannino making it 1-0 WBS Penguins. Just after the goal Mormina sits in the bin for interference but the WBS Penalty Kill holds keeping the score one nothing.
Manchester woulda give up a short handed goal on the Mormina interference power play, Smith would tally the unassisted goal mice shot too. The second ends 2-0 WBS
Third period the Pens Riley Holzapfel sits for a trip and Zach Sill scores the Pens second shorty on a nice breakaway making it 3-0 WBS. Riley Holzapfel would get the Pens forth of the game but Manchester would spoil Zatkoff’s shutout just a short time later making it 4-1
WBS would hold on to their lead and end regulation beating the Monarchs 4-1
Tonight’s game was number 1000 for former Penguin returned to Penguin Tom Kostopoulos always good to see Tom on the ice in a Penguins sweater.
