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

GAMEDAY: vs. Hershey 10/27

vs.     

Who: Hershey Bears

Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza

When: 7:05 p.m.

Last Game: Saturday at home against the Hartford Wolf Pack, the Penguins won 3-2 in a shootout. The Penguins battled back from an 0-2 hole to force overtime and then the shootout round and then J-S Dea scored in the top of the second. Casey DeSmith denied all three Wolf Pack shooters. For Hershey, they were shutout in Rockford on Sunday, wrapping up their Midwest road trip.

Record: For WBS: 4-2-0-0 // For HER: 1-4-0-1

Referee(s): Furman South / Chris Schlenker

Linesmen: Libor Suchanek / J.P. Waleski

Why You Should Care: You shouldn’t need a reason to get up for a game against the Hershey Bears but I’ll give one to you anyway. The Bears come in winning just one game and are missing their two top goaltenders due to injury. They were shutout in their last game and thus far their season has been a disappointment. What better way to get back on track on the road in Wilkes-Barre. Now the Penguins aren’t going to allow that to happen so easy, but that is what makes this rivalry so much fun.

Promotion(s): Pittsburgh Penguins Calendar (first 3,000)

Other Game to Watch: Providence visits Binghamton in what I believe will be an interesting match up.

Next Five Games: @ BRI 10/28, @ LV 11/3, HER 11/5, TOR 11/8, PRO 11/11
