A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins
Home Game: 10
AHL Game: 281
Who: Hershey Bears
Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza
When: 7:05 p.m.
Last Game: Yesterday at home the Penguins shutout the Providence Bruins 3-0. Matt Murray picked up the shutout with 29 saves…for Hershey, they lost last night in Allentown 6-5 in a shootout. Nathan Walker had a goal and an assist for the Bears and was named second star.
Last Meeting: November 13 in Wilkes-Barre, the Penguins won 7-0. Matt Murray had a 24 save shutout in that game, Conor Sheary had a goal and three assists.
Record: For WBS: 15-2-0-0 (30 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For HER: 10-5-0-4 (24 pts., 3rd place Atlantic Division)
Why you should care: Big test for the Bears tonight, who have points in five straight games after coming off the 7-0 loss to the Penguins and a 5-0 loss to Bridgeport the very next night. For the Penguins, it’s all about defending home ice and pushing the win streak at home to 10 games against arguably your biggest rival.

Other Game to Watch: Taking things out west tonight, I like that Grand Rapids / Lake Erie matchup. The Griffins have all of a sudden won five games in a row and the Monsters lead the Central Division.
