Bears end Penguins’ road win streak

Graham Mink and Boyd Gordon scored on Hershey’s last two shootout attempts as the Bears pulled out a 3-2 win over Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Sunday evening, giving the Penguins the first blemish on their road record in 2005-06.

The Pens had won their first 13 games away from home on the year, and 15 in a row on the road since late last season. Wilkes-Barre will go into the AHL record book as the new owners of the longest road winning streak in AHL history, and with a share of the single-season mark.

Mink, who skated for the parent Washington Capitals on Saturday night, returned to Hershey and also scored in regulation for the Bears.

Tomas Surovy and Jonathan Filewich scored for the Penguins, who have still not lost a game in regulation yet this year (20-0-2-1).

Frederic Cassivi made 20 saves for Hershey, including three in an overtime period in which the Bears killed of the Penguins’ 11th power play chance of the game.

Wilkes-Barre got 26 saves from Dany Sabourin, who fell to 9-0-1 on the season.
