Penguins vs. CheckersOctober 7th, 2017
46 days to go.
A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins
Home Game: 13
AHL Game: 339
Who: Hershey Bears
Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza
When: 7:05 p.m.
Last Game: Last night at home vs. Lehigh Valley, the Pens won 5-1. Tom Kostopoulos had two goals and was named first star of the game. For Hershey, the Bears hosted the Bridgeport Sound Tigers and won 6-3. Stan Galiev scored the first two goals of the game for the Bears.
Last Meeting: Thanksgiving Eve in Hershey, the Pens lost in a shootout, 2-1. Brian Dumoulin had a last minute, extra attacker goal that guaranteed the Penguins at least a point.
Record: For WBS: 13-8-1-1 (28 pts., 1st place East Division) — For HER: 12-8-1-1 (26 pts., 2nd place East Division)
Why you should care: Last night the Penguins impressed with a lineup bereft of the leading scorers and won in impressive fashion with arguably their best game of the year played to date. A duplication of the process is going to be needed this night vs. the rival Bears who are just two points off the East Division lead Wilkes-Barre owns.
Referee(s): Terry Koharski
