Media Kit

Last Game: Sunday vs. Syracuse, the Penguins were shutout at home 3-0. For Adirondack, they played Sunday in Springfield and had the game suspended due to an injury to Springfield’s Wade MacLeod.

Last Meeting: February 2 in Wilkes-Barre, the Penguins won 3-0. Warren Peters had two goals and Brad Thiessen had a 20 save shutout.

Record: For WBS: 26-22-2-1 (55 pts., 3rd place East Division) — For ADK: 20-25-2-1 (43 pts., 5th place Northeast Division)

Why you should care: The Penguins take to the road to start the weekend against non-divisional opponents, which the Penguins have enjoyed great success against. They are neck and neck with Hershey for third in the division. A bad points weekend may completely put the division race out of reach. A great start and a strong finish is a must against the Phantoms, who will be playing on the parent team Flyers home ice.

Other Game to Watch: Hershey is in Binghamton tonight. Are the B-Sens contenders or pretenders? Are the Bears going to make a push for the division lead? Those questions look to be answered on the Southern Tier tonight.
