Away Game: 17
AHL Game: 515
Who: Toronto Marlies
Where: Ricoh Coliseum
When: 7:00 p.m.
Last Game: Sunday in Hershey, the Pens won in overtime against the Bears 6-5. David Warsofsky scored the game winner, to go along with another goal which helped him earn the AHL Player of the Week award. For Toronto, the Marlies hosted the Rochester Americans and lost 4-3 in overtime. Ex-Penguin Kasperi Kapanen had a pair of goals in the loss.
Last Meeting: November 11 in Wilkes-Barre, the Penguins were shutout 3-0. Antoine Bibeau had a 19 save shutout.
Record: For WBS: 25-7-3-0 (53 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For TOR: 15-16-2-1 (33 pts., 4th place North Division)
Why you should care: Toronto is a different team from the last time we saw them. In their last ten games, the Marlies are 3-6-1-0 and have been trending in the wrong direction for the last month and a half. The Penguins on the other hand have remained at the top of the AHL for that time. The Penguins will need to come out strong and limit mistakes if they want to get this road trips started off on the right foot tonight.
