Peter Mannino picked up the win in his second straight start of the weekend, stopping 30 of 32 shots. Andrew Ebbett picked up three points (2G-1A), while Tom Kostopoulos added a goal and an assist. Denver Manderson, a Fergus, Ontario native, tallied the game winning goal in his return close to home.
The win, coupled with regulation losses by Albany and Providence, moves the Penguins into 6th place in the Eastern Conference. In the East Division, Norfolk defeated Hershey 3-1 to move into first place, leapfrogging the Binghamton Senators after the BSens see a 4-0 lead over Utica on home ice evaporate into a 6-5 shootout loss. The Penguins remain third in the division, two points behind Norfolk and one point behind Binghamton.
The Penguins finish their three-game weekend road trip against teams from the Western Conference with a 3 p.m. ET face-off against North Division leader Toronto Marlies Sunday afternoon at the Ricoh Coliseum.
