Home Game: 27
AHL Game: 860
Who: Hershey Bears
Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza
When: 4:05 p.m.
Last Game / Last Meeting: Last night in Hershey, the Pens were blown out 6-2. The Penguins fired just 14 shots at Bears nets, Dustin Jeffrey and Mattias Plachta scored the goals for the Pens. Carter Camper had a goal and two assists in the winning effort for the Bears.
Record: For WBS: 34-19-4-1 (73 pts., 2nd place Atlantic Division) — For HER: 34-15-3-7 (78 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division)
Why you should care: Expect the backups in this Sunday afternoon game. Both Dan Ellis and Tristan Jarry both started their respective teams games Friday and Saturday this weekend, so expect Justin Peters for the Bears and Brian Foster for the Penguins this afternoon. It will probably be something weird that wins this game then, with the team that has the most shots on goal that probably wins the game.
