WBS Pens 5 vs Hershey 4

With Pessi's breakout game now behind him, The AHL better bewere, Janne takes his show on the road today playing the Hershey Bears at the Giant Center today at 5 pm. All you AHL fans better hurry if you want a chance to see the Finnish Finsher before he makes way to the big club, I doubt he will be back.


Just to inform everybody, the Hershey Bears are the hottest team in the AHL right now so this is a big game for Janne to prove himself against some established talent.
The Baby Pens went into the Giant Center and defeated the AHL hottest team The Hershey Bears 5-4. Pens started fast with 2 goals in about the first 1:31 of the first period with goals by Cote and James, but Hershey came back with the next 3 goals, goalie John Curry was pulled in favor of Adam Berkhoel, pretty much shutdown the Bears for the rest of the game until late goal with about 22 secs to go in the game. Minard scored on the PP with an assist from Janne making it 3-3 a little more than midway through the 2nd period, when about 5 mins later Ryan Stone put the Pens ahead for good. Minard scored late in the 3rd making it 5-3, then Hershey scored a meaningless goal to make the final 5-4 and handing the red-hot Bears their first loss of the season. The Baby Pens have started to what will be a 7 game road trip.
Janne was pretty quiet with just 1 assist, 1 shot and +1.
