Media Kit

Last Game: Sunday in Hershey, the Pens lost to the Bears 4-1. This was the third loss in a row in a three in three weekend where the Penguins only scored three goals total. For Syracuse, the Crunch were shutout in Albany Sunday by the Devils.

Record: For WBS: 16-5-0-0 (32 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For SYR: 10-8-2-1 (23 pts., 4th place North Division)

Why you should care: Both teams are coming off of bad losses. The Crunch have been crushed by personnel losses and injuries and the Penguins uncharacteristically lost all three games this past weekend with a lineup the strongest it has ever been. Expect the Penguins to come out a lot sharper than they were this past weekend, if not sharper than they have been all season. This is a game the Penguins simply cannot lose.
