HERSHEY, Pa. – No one said it was going to be easy, but as far as former South Carolina Stingray forward Steve Pinizzotto is concerned, that just means he has to keep working, keep doing what he’s been doing and hope that he gets noticed.For the most part, he’s getting noticed now. Something of a spare part for most of the limited time he spent in Hershey in his first two pro seasons — the extra forward who was willing to drop the gloves when necessary, who was willing to do what it took to earn ice time — Pinizzotto suddenly blossomed late last season, and by the time the playoffs arrived, had become a checking-line regular. And a first-unit penalty-killer.
