Pouliot, WBS Penguins Pull Out 6-5 OT Win to Even First-Round Series

David Warsofsky and Kevin Porter both post four-point games

by Nick Hart @WBSPenguins / Media Release

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Derrick Pouliot's goal at 7:49 of overtime was the difference, as the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins won a thriller, 6-5, over the Providence Bruins on Sunday afternoon at Dunkin' Donuts Center.

 Pouliot picked up a loose puck and skated through the neutral zone, eventually banking a shot off of the back of goaltender Zane McIntyre to even the best-of-five series 1-1. Game 3 is scheduled for Thursday night back in Wilkes-Barre.

The Penguins controlled much of the play in the early going, outshooting the Bruins 18-9 in the first period, but couldn't beat netminder Zane McIntyre during the opening frame.

That changed quickly in an offense-filled second period.
