BUFFALO — It was a choppy game, according to Pittsburgh Penguins farmhand Corey Andonovski. The Princeton alum has been exposed to bigger words and probably used a few more of them in his life, but in this case, “choppy” was probably as well as he could spin the Penguins’ 4-2 loss to the Boston Bruins prospect team at LECOM Harborcenter Friday.
The Penguins prospects team, heavy on veterans and short on talent, allowed the first goal before the game was a minute old. It allowed two before seven minutes expired and otherwise was less threatening than mild sauce on Anchor Bar wings.
Top Penguins goalie prospect Joel Blomqvist could only stare up at his defenseman Jack St. Ivany as an aimless centering pass became a St. Ivany own-goal in the first minute.
