Away Game: 2
AHL Game: 8
Who: Bridgeport Sound Tigers
Where: Webster Bank Arena
When: 7:00 p.m.
Last Game: Last night in Providence, the Pens won 2-1 in overtime. Matt Murray made 40 saves and Scott Wilson netted both goals for the Penguins. For Bridgeport, this is their first game of the 2015-16 campaign.
Record: For WBS: 1-0-0-0 (1st Place, Atlantic Division) — For BRI: This is their first game of the season.
Why you should care: Penguins gave up way too many shots and took way too many penalties for Head Coach Mike Sullivan’s liking last night yet somehow still found a way to win. Expect Wilkes-Barre to button up the shots allowed and play a more disciplined game against a fresher Sound Tigers team looking to get their season off on the right foot.
