GAMEDAY: @ Worcester 1/17
January 17, 2015Posted by on
Away Game: 18
AHL Game: 591
Who: Worcester Sharks
Where: DCU Center
When: 7:00 p.m.
Last Game: Last Saturday in Syracuse, the Penguins lost 4-3. Jayson Megna scored two goals in the loss. For Worcester, the Sharks hosted the Manchester Monarchs last night and won in the shootout 5-4. The Sharks battled back from 2-0 and 3-2 deficits against the Atlantic Division leading Monarchs.
Record: For WBS: 20-15-1-3 (44 pts., 1st place East Division) — For WOR: 18-14-3-2 (41 pts., 3rd place Atlantic Division)
Why you should care: The Penguins should have an advantage tonight in Worcester with this being their first game this week and the Sharks playing two tough battles with division leading Manchester. Last night’s contest ended after 10 o’clock. But don’t expect it to be. Worcester is all of a sudden really hot team and the Penguins come in with question marks given losses in the last four contests. Should make for an interesting night.
