Chirps from Center Ice

A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins


Wilkes-Barre started out gangbusters after the fist period, firing 20 shots at Jeremy Smith and took a 1-0 lead into the dressing room. 

Through parts of the second, it looked as if the lead may hold. 

But the Providence Bruins too good of a hockey team that are wel coached with a full complement of players. 

The Pens lost 3-1. But it wasn’t all because of the whole loaded team in front of Smith for Providence. 

The Penguins had many power play opportunities in the game and could not capitalize on any of them. 

With Hershey winning tonight at home against Lehigh Valley, they lock up the Atlantic Division Championship. That means that the Penguins and Bruins are locked as first round opponents in the Calder Cup Playoffs. 

More to follow in a bit.
