Beating the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pens 4-2 Friday night — the Syracuse Crunch now hold a 3-1 series lead and look to eliminate the Pittsburgh Penguins AHL affiliate.

Receiving an early third period goal from Tyler Johnson, the Crunch’ J.T. Wyman would later add an empty-net goal later to seal the deal.

The teeter-tottering, hard fought game didn’t end the way WBS would’ve liked it to Friday night — but they’re still in it.

And with the way the team battled through adversity in the last round, coming from behind shouldn’t be anything new to them.

There was good news to come out of the loss though.

Pens prospect Scott Harrington, who was assigned to WBS earlier this week, was able to notch his first goal as a baby Pen’ 13:50 into the first period on the power play.

Harrington signed an amateur tryout contract this past Tuesday.

The WBS Pens will now look to keep their Cup hopes alive tomorrow when they travel back to Syracuse for Game 5.
