      Penguins complete comeback, oust Tigers

      Ryan Stone and Jonathan Filewich scored third-period goals and Wilkes-
      Barre/Scranton withstood a late rally to take a 5-4 victory from
      Bridgeport in Game 7 of their East Division semifinal on Saturday
      night.

      The Penguins, who rallied from 0-2 down to win their first-round
      series for the third year in a row, will meet in-state rival Hershey
      next, beginning Thursday night.

      Stone, the overtime hero in Game 6, gave the Pens a two-goal lead
      early in the third period. He finished with a goal and an assist, as
      did Erik Christensen and Ryan Whitney.

      Marc-Andre Fleury made 27 saves for his second win in a row.

      Allan Rourke, Justin Papineau, Bruno Gervais and Rob Collins all
      scored for the Sound Tigers, who like Manchester in the Atlantic
      Division never trailed in the series until Game 7 was over.

      Wilkes-Barre's win on Saturday was the first by the home team in the
      series, which was the first in 70 years of Calder Cup Playoff history
      to feature seven one-goal games.
