It was the Hershey Bears coming to Wilkes-Barre tonight to take on the WBS Penguins.
Hershey earns the first power play of the game but the WBS PK holds none the less Hershey would tally three goals on the Penguins ultimately causing Brad Theissen to get yanked and Jeff Zatkoff to take his place. Bobby Farnham would get ten minutes in the bin on a misconduct. Kostopoulos would tally a WBS power play goal making it 3-1 at the end of one.
During the second period the WBS Penguins would get their second goal of the game a nice shot by Joey Mormina from just inside the blue line narrowing the Hershey lead to one goal now just 3-2 Hershey.
That’s where things would stand heading off the ice for the second intermission WBS Penguins out shooting the Bears at this point 25-11 considering shots were even at nine a piece last break not a bad thing.
WBS got three power plays in the third period to Hershey’s two but would make no use of them total for the game was 1/3 not a bad showing just not there when they really needed it.
Rob Belardi added a note tonight that Zatkoff switched out of his throw back pads to his everyday whites but it didn’t seem to help.
