Pens take 3 of 4 – Win Capital Classic


Seventeen players figured in on 21 goals in 4 games to lead the Empire Junior B Pengins to a 3-1 record this weekend in Prince William Virginia.

After dropping the first contest to the Washington Capitals the Pens won 3 straight to take the pre-season tournament. This young Penguins team, with no returning players from the successful Empire team from the 2008-09 season overcame some early deficits in 3 of 4 of the games before ending the weekend successfully.

Goalie Matt Schmidilin was named the #2 star of the final and Captain Drew Martz was named the #1 star of the final  notching the winning goal with just over 4 minutes remaining in the game. The Penguins travel to Wayne New Jersey in two weeks for the Hitmen Showcase marking the start of the Empire Junior B regular season.
