Penguins Tame Bears



This afternoons game against the Hershey Bears at the Mohegan Sun Arena got off to a great start, that is for the Hershey bears as Dmitry Orlov opens up the scoring with a nice spin move putting the puck on net and giving the Bears a 1-0 lead early on. The Pens weren’t out of this game that easy, Paul Thompson gets a nice pass from Jayson Megna and ties things up at one with just under ten minutes left in the first period.

Six minutes later Brian Dumoulin scores the Pens second of the game on the power play making it a 2-1 game Penguins leading and things getting interesting. Thats were the score would stay heading for the dressing room for the first intermission WBS leading the Bears 2-1

3:43 into the second period the Penguins went up 3-1 with a nice feed from Trevor Smith to Chad Kolarik who was right where he needed to be to score and score he did. Hershey had a few chances this period but didn’t seem to get things dome even on the 5×3 power play they just couldn’t seem to find the right path. A decent period good kills by the Pens one goal heading for the second intermission leading the Bears 3-1 and looking at a carry over power play.

Just fifty eight seconds into the third period Kolarik goes on HTA as he scores his second of the game and the Pens fourth of the night now leading 4-1. The Bears dug in and mounted a comeback effort and score in the final ten minutes on a power Ryan Potulny makes it 4-2, nothing more dangerous than a two point hockey game. Peter LeBlanc scores then with just over six minutes left to play to make it 4-3, but that’s where it ended the boys held on for the win beating the Hershey Bears 4-3

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.
