Chirps from Center Ice

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

Preseason Eve 10/5

Hockey returns to the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza Thursday night when the Albany Devils come to town for some preseason hockey against the Penguins for a 7:05 start.

Here’s the setup from the Penguins. Apparently the game will be on the radio if you can’t make it down to the Arena on WILK Radio.

Tom reported today that Casey DeSmith practiced with the first group today while Leland Irving practiced in the second. I think what Clark Donatelli may do tomorrow is have DeSmith start and have Irving come in either halfway through the second or in the third period.

On Irving, he was featured on the new and improved Penguins website Wednesday.

Today, Coal Street featured Gage Quinney. I’m hoping that Quinney and a less experienced lineup plays tomorrow. I’d like to get a look at some of the fringe guys to see if any of them stand out.

Albany is probably bringing an inexperienced group with them as well.

I’ll have a brief, stripped down recap Thursday night after the game. No pregame setups or anything like that. AHL doesn’t have boxscores available for preseason games so let’s hope I get the final score right in the blog story. I’ll have updates on Twitter.

In case you were wondering, everyone put on waivers Tuesday cleared Wednesday.

More Thursday after the game.
