Penguins Fall to Admirals 5-2, Again

Monday, December 19, 2011
WBS missed Sneep, who made his NHL debut with Pittsburgh.
The Penguins patchwork defensive core finally showed that it was missing all but one regular AHL defensemen and drop another 5-2 decision to the Norfolk Admirals.

This was a 2-2 game early in the second period but three unanswered goals by the Admirals sealed the deal.  Ben Street and Bryan Lerg were the goal scorers for the Pens.

Brad Thiessen was pulled in favor of Scott Munroe after the Admirals third goal, but Thiessen finished the game, coming back in for the third period.

Not much you can ask for with the decimated lineup, but a better effort will be needed Monday night against the Albany Devils. That is the last game before the holiday break.
