WILKES-BARRE TWP. – For two periods Sunday afternoon, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins rookie Patrick Killeen  faced a grand total of 9 shots and had given up 3 goals. His team was down 3-2 going into the final period. The third period was completely the opposite as  he turned in his best period of goaltending thus far since his call up from the Wheeling Nailers, stopping all 17 shots he faced the as the Penguins rallied to a 5-3 win over the Springfield Falcons. Brian Gibbons tied it 3-3.  Alex Grant  and scored on a slap shot from the blue line. Earlier, Jason Williams and Bryan Lerg had a goal and an assist apiece to break the scoring drought the Penguins were in. In the first two periods, Springfield scored when Matt Calvert finished off a three-on-two, Alexandre Giroux got behind the Penguins defense and set up  Dane Byers who buried the puck and finished  a three-on-one. Geoff Walker called Amadio over to the red line in warm-ups challenging him, then the pair fought off the opening faceoff. That seemed to settle  any issues the Falcons had, as no Falcons players appeared to have any interest in getting near MacIntyre, who played an effective game around the net in the offensive zone, to seek retribution.
