Penguins get their Fil in overtime

Jonathan Filewich scored his second goal of the game at the 2:57 mark of overtime, giving Wilkes-Barre/Scranton a 3-2 win over Norfolk and another place in AHL history.

It was the Penguins’ 14th consecutive road victory since late last season, a new all-time AHL record. Wilkes-Barre has won 12 straight away from home in 2005-06, and can tie the single-season record held by the 1995-96 Albany River Rats and the 2002-03 Hamilton Bulldogs with another win in Norfolk on Saturday.

Wilkes-Barre is now 19-0-2-0, earning a point in each of its 21 games this year.

Filewich netted the winning goal by batting a Rob Scuderi pass out of mid-air and past Admirals goaltender Adam Munro. The Penguins survived two late Norfolk power plays, including one that carried over into OT.

Dany Sabourin made 35 saves on the night to run his record to 9-0-0.
