Media Kit


Last Game: Wednesday in Game 1 at Hershey the Penguins won 4-0. It was their 1o0th postseason win and the shut out of the Bears was the first time they ever blanked the Bears in the postseason in franchise history. It was only the second time that the Penguins had ever won at Giant Center in the playoffs. Daniel Sprong scored twice, Casey DeSmith made 33 saves.

What to watch for: Adjustments for the Bears. Will we see Dan Ellis in net tonight for Hershey? How many lineup changes to they make? The Bears, with home ice and the Division Champions, will be playing as the more desperate team because they do not want to fall in an 0-2 hole as the series shifts to Wilkes-Barre Saturday at Monday for Games 4 and 5.
