The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins dropped their first two home games to the Admirals, in a major disappointment as the number one seed going into the post-season.
Tonight, they picked up their first playoff win of the series and overall since May 2009.
 
Ryan Craig's forecheck led to a bounce right to Keven Veilleux's stick, where he decided to go BeastMode and pick one over Tokarski's glove, bar down.
With the Pens being shut out in game 2, Veilleux would have the only two series goals for WB/S up until this point. He scored the loner in game 1.
 
Some guy named Gelato tied the game up on a power play with the worst attempt at a backhand of all-time.
Best part about winning this one is that the Admirals celebrated their goal as if they had just won the Stanley Cup.

Get a hold of yourselves.
 
Eight minutes into the third, Norfolk's heavyweight fighter Pierre-Cedric Labrie took a double-minor high sticking penalty to Steve Wagner's face.
Andrew Hutchinson lugs the puck up the ice on the powerplay, and feeds Bryan Lerg, who snipes a wrist shot off of the right post and in.
The first PP goal for the Pens in the entire series.

Lerg is an undrafted player who's potential was only seen by coach John Hynes and the Pittsburgh organization.
He played against Evgeni Malkin and co. in the World Juniors, which is where they first saw his game at.
That's what this kid does. Just scores big goals.
He dangled and sniped Braden Hotlby in Hershey, shorthanded, in overtime to clinch the Eastern Division Championship.
 
Tonight, the puck from his first career AHL playoff goal is just another game winner he can add to the mantle.
