15 days to go.
A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins
Away Game: 32
AHL Game: 961
Who: Lehigh Valley Phantoms
Where: PPL Center
When: 5:05 p.m.
Lats Game: Last night at home vs. Binghamton, the Pens lost 4-3. Taylor Chorney had three assists, a career high for the Penguins defenseman. For Lehigh Valley, they were in Worcester last night and lost 6-1. Brandon Manning had the only goal for the Phantoms in the loss.
Last Meeting: February 14 in Wilkes-Barre, the Penguins lost 5-4 in a shootout. Brian Dumoulin had two assists and was named second star of the game.
Record: For WBS: 36-21-3-4 (79 pts., 2nd place East Division) — For LV: 29-26-6-1 (65 pts., 3rd place East Division)
Why you should care: Penguins are cold right now. They look to get hot again against a struggling Phantoms team that matches up really well against them. Wilkes-Barre almost needs to win this game in hand that they have on the Bears if they have any hopes of catching the Bears for the division lead.

Other Game to Watch: I like Hartford at Albany. The Wolf Pack are a playoff team looking to make a run while the Devils are on the outside looking in.
Next Five Games: @ BNG 3/27, @ LV 3/28, HFD 4/1, WOR 4/3, LV 4/4
