April 18, 2015Posted by on
Home Game: 38
AHL Game: 1138
Who: Norfolk Admirals
Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza
When: 7:05 p.m.
Last Game: Last night vs. Albany, the Pens were shutout 4-0. For Norfolk, they hosted Lehigh Valley in their final home game as an AHL franchise and won 4-2. Shea Theodore had a goal and an assist for second star honors.
Last Meeting: January 24 in Norfolk, the Penguins won in overtime 3-2. Tom Kostopoulos scored the game winning goal.
Record: For WBS: 43-24-3-4 (93 pts., 2nd place East Division) — For NOR: 27-38-6-4 (64 pts., 5th place East Division)
Why you should care: Penguins gave up the East Division Championship to Hershey last night but can still clinch home ice in round one with a win and a Syracuse loss. They battle a Norfolk team that will be emotionally drained after playing their final AHL home game in Virginia last night. The Admirals won’t be a pushover though as they will battle to the bitter end in their final game as an AHL franchise.
