Media Kit

Last Game: Last night in Wilkes-Barre, Kasperi Kapanen scored twice in a span of 1:40 as the Penguins took Game 1 by a score of 5-1. Kapanen was named the first star of the game.

What to watch for: For the Penguins, repetition. For the Crunch, killer instinct. The Penguins can not rest on their laurels and expect the Crunch to lie down and wither away just because they lost last night by four goals. Syracuse needs to come out and take control of the game from the jump if they want to have visions of taking this series back to Syracuse tied at a game a piece.
