WBS Penguins Edge Senators in Shootout

Monday, November 7, 2011
Despite what I thought was a dominating performance by the WBS Penguins Saturday night, the game went to a shootout to decide the winner.

Zach Sill gave the Penguins a lead in the second period, but a Joey Mormina interference penalty with 2:37 left in the game gave the Senators a chance to tie the game. Mike Hoffman's shot went off Carl Sneep's stick and into the net behind Brad Thiessen with 1:54 to play.

The Pens held off a late surge by the Senators and after a scoreless overtime, went to work in the shootout.  Colin McDonald, Niko Dimitrakos and Bryan Lerg scored shootout goals for the Penguins and Brad Thiessen stopped three of five shots to preserve the 2-1 shootout victory.

All in all a great weekend for the Penguins, beating Hershey 4-0 and Binghamton 2-1. The Penguins are now 6-0-0-0 on the road, while also winning six straight games and unbeaten in their last seven.

A tough week ahead though with no time to bask in the glory of this past weekend, with games Wednesday in Norfolk, Friday in Hershey and Saturday at home against Norfolk again.
