No "Mo" Home Woes, Pens Win 5-2

Saturday, February 4, 2012

The Penguins beat the Albany Devils 5-2 tonight and fans complaining about the poor performances by the team at the Mohegan Sun Arena are going to have a hard time explaining it now. With the win, the Pens are now 4-0-1-0 in their last five home games.

Joey Mormina's goal in the first period proved to be the game winner, although at the time it seemed like one would be enough with how the Pens came out and took it to the Devils in the first 20 minutes.

A note on Mormina, his 6th goal of the season tonight is a career high for him in a season. Coming into the season, Mormina had tallied 15 goals in 397 career AHL games. He has six goals in just 35 games this season. Truly a great story, a great guy to have in the locker room.

Elsewhere in the division, the Hershey Bears drop another game, a 4-1 loss to the Connecticut Whale. Norfolk cruised to a 6-1 win over Springfield.

Penguins (62 points) lead the East Division by five points over the Bears and Admirals (57 points each).  With the St. John's IceCaps 4-2 loss to Worcester the Penguins are tied for first in the Eastern Conference.

Penguins travel to Hershey for a 2 p.m. tilt on Super Bowl Sunday and we'll have full coverage on Twitter and the blog so stay tuned! GO PENGUINS!
