WILKES BARRE, Pa. - Anton Zlobin scored twice and set up one more as the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins downed the visiting Hamilton Bulldogs 5-1 on Friday in American Hockey League play.

Andrew Ebbett had a goal and an assist for the Penguins (31-20-8) while Brian Dumoulin and Chuck Kobasew each scored once.
