GAMEDAY: vs. Syrause 2/17
February 17, 2013Posted by on
Home Game: 26
AHL Game: 754
Who: Syracuse Crunch
Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza
When: 4:05 p.m.
Last Game: Last night in Binghamton, the Penguins won 5-2. Chad Kolarik had a goal and three assists and was named first star of the game. For Syracuse, they played in Binghamton on Friday and won 7-1. J.T. Wyman had a hat trick and an assist, and also was named first star of the game.
Last Meeting: New Years Eve in Wilkes-Barre, the Penguins lost 2-1. Trevor Smith scored with :01 left to spoil Dustin Tokarski’s shutout bid.
Record: For WBS: 26-21-2-1 (55 pts., 3rd place East Division) — For SYR: 28-14-2-4 (62 pts., 2nd place East Division)
Why you should care: The Penguins can get to five points of the Crunch with a regulation win this afternoon. It’s not going to be easy, because the Crunch are a good team and were off last night while the Penguins were in Binghamton last night. Good goaltending, as they’ve had all year, and success on the power play, that they had last night should do the trick.
