Chirps from Center Ice

A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins

Sunday Roundup

So some news and what happened in the East Division Sunday afternoon with every team except Wilkes-Barre playing a game. First the news…

–> Chris Barton was released from his PTO and returned to Wheeling where he and the Nailers played the Elmira Jackals up in New York. Another thing worth noting in this game was it was Keven Veilleux’s first game back from his 10 game suspension. The Nailers lost this game 5-0 and haven’t scored a goal since Thursday. Veilleux was a -3.

–> Joe Morrow was recalled to Pittsburgh, Kris Letang was placed on injured reserve and Morrow is up “for insurance” purposes. He was scratched in Pittsburgh’s game vs. New Jersey tonight.

–> Follower @TK_Noodle chirped in this morning and showed me his first quarter grades for the Pittsburgh Penguins through 12 games. Worth a read.

Alright, so here’s what went down in the East Division today:

SYR     1

ADK     6

So I had time today to mess around with graphs and graphics. Now you know how I spent my afternoon. You like it.

Anyway, unless something big happens tomorrow, look for the next blog update to come Tuesday for the Gameday setup. Always the latest on Twitter, then Facebook but never Instagram. Heh.

Let’s Go Pens!
