Chirps from Center Ice

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


Totally embarrassing loss by the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins tonight. Boasting an extremely healthy roster loaded with talent top to bottom, the Penguins lay an egg and lose 5-2. 

Pens weren’t in this one from the beginning, and it was a lifeless mess of a contest. 

Tristan Jarry started and cannot be blamed for the loss. Bears are great in transition and every goal was a defensive breakdown. 

Jake Guentzel picked up where he left off, chipping in a power play goal in the first and adding an assist. 

But every time the Penguins got close and you thought the comeback was on, the Bears edged ahead again. 

A total mess, from top to bottom. 

More venting in a bit.

    Put Haggerty in the lineup and on the powerplay
