Belleville Sens enter holiday break with win over Penguins

December 22, 2022

The Belleville Senators are heading into the holiday break in winning fashion after they defeated the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins 3-1 on Wednesday night at CAA Arena.

After a scoreless first period, Belleville opened the scoring after Jayce Hawryluk found the back of the net with a power play tally at the 14:23 mark of the middle stanza. However, the lead was shortlived as Wilkes-Barre/Scranton evened the score through defenceman Xavier Ouellet to take a 1-1 tie into the intermission.

Early in the third, the Senators extended their advantage when Brennan Saulnier capitalized with a quick wrister from the slot to make it 2-1. Later in the frame, Belleville helped secure their home victory when Ridly Grieg scored his fifth of the campaign with a nifty move on a penalty shot.

The Senators are back in action on Monday afternoon when they visit the Toronto Marlies for a Boxing Day game at Scotiabank Arena.
