February 8, 2017Posted by on
Home Game: 23
Who: St. John’s IceCaps
Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza
When: 7:05 p.m.
Last Game: Last Saturday at home against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, the Penguins embarrassed the Phantoms and beat them 7-1. Tom Kostopoulos played in his 600th Wilkes-Barre game and scored twice. Josh Archibald also scored twice. For St. John’s they were in Hershey on Sunday and lost 3-2. Josiah Didier and Chris Terry scored goals for the IceCaps in the loss.
Last Meeting: Last Friday in Wilkes-Barre, the Penguins lost 5-2. Daniel Carr scored twice for the IceCaps. Ethan Prow collected his first AHL goal and Derrick Pouliot added the other goal.

Why you should care: Expect the Penguins to have a better effort than last Friday’s clunker against this same team they are facing tonight. They showed Sturday that when firing on all cylinders they can run with any tea in the league. Expect retribution tonight when the Penguins and St John’s meet for the last time this season.
