HARTFORD, CT - The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins controlled the play and were able to score timely goals and beat the Hartford Wolf Pack 4-1 before 4,987 Sunday afternoon at the XL Center.

The Penguins wasted little time building a two goal lead in the third period. Just 10 seconds into the period, Tom Kostopoulos, a right handed shot on the left wing waited patiently as Andrew Ebbett escaped a check from Conor Allen and one-timed the pass to the stick-side of Yann Danis for his twelfth of the season and second of the game.
