Last Game: This past Tuesday at home vs. Binghamton the Penguins won 3-0. Scott Munroe earned the 25 save shutout. For Portland, this past Tuesday the Pirates beat the Adirondack Phantoms 4-2. Young prospect Andy Miele had a goal and an assist and was named the third star of the game.

Why you should care: Penguins take on the new look Portland Pirates in Maine this evening and look to extend the road win streak to nine games. Before they do this, they will need to keep Andy Miele, ex-WBS Penguin M-A Pouliot and others in check. They will most likely face Curtis McElhinney in goal, who spent the last few seasons in the NHL.
