Anticipating the return of forwards Eric Fehr and Carl Hagelin, the Penguins sent Conor Sheary to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton following practice yesterday.

The Pens certainly had their moments during last night’s disappointing 3-2 loss to Washington at the Verizon Center. They were the quicker, more vibrant team to open the game. When Patric Hornqvist [...]
