Still need to finish going through the photos from the WBS Penguins 2-1 overtime loss to the St. John's Ice Caps in game three of their second round series Saturday night. The Pens fought hard, overcoming a sluggish start in a first period that saw St. John's controlling much of the play. The Ice Caps came out of the first with a 1-0 lead, after which WBS mostly dominated the rest of the way, finally netting the tying goal in the final minute with goalie Brad Thiessen pulled for the extra attacker. St. John's would go on to score the winner just past the halfway mark in the extra frame.
It's a tough way to lose, no doubt, but we saw the Pens bounce back from a less than stellar performance in game one of the series to post a convincing win in game two. Let's hope they show the same resilience as they take the ice for game four Sunday at 4pm.
Continue after the jump for some early photos.
I had the pleasure of meeting a few members of Joey Mormima's family, who happen to be staying at the same hotel that we are, including Joey's dad and father-in-law. Great group of people, and very enthusiastic in their support of Joey and the Pens. Naturally, I was paying special attention to #3 during the game and so it should be no surprise that he is in the first few photos to come out of tonight's game.
