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

GAMEDAY: @ Bridgeport 10/28

@     

Who: Bridgeport Sound Tigers

Where: Webster Bank Arena

When: 7:00 p.m.

Last Game: Last night at home against the Hershey Bears, the Penguins won 3-2. Dominik Simon scored the game winning goal in the third period and Tristan Jarry stopped 30 of 32 to pick up the win.  For Bridgeport, the Sound Tigers were in Hartford Friday and steamrolled the Hartford Wolf Pack 5-1. Chris Gibson stopped 23 of 24, Josh Ho-Sang, fresh from the New York Islanders had a goal and an assist.

Record: For WBS: 5-2-0-0 // For BRI: 3-4-0-0

Referee(s): Guillaume Labonte / Peter MacDougall

Linesmen: Glen Cooke / Peter Hejna

Why You Should Care: Penguins hung tough with a better than their record would indicate Hershey Bears team. They are going to need to do the same with a top heavy Bridgeport team that has Alan Quine down on conditioning and Josh Ho-Sang down on straight up assignment. This isn’t a trap game for the Penguins in October, but if Wilkes-Barre doesn’t bring their best, they may spend the whole night fishing pucks out of their nets.

Other Game to Watch: Laval visits Toronto in a key North Division match up tonight.

Next Five Games: @ LV 11/3, HER 11/5, TOR 11/8, PRO 11/11, @ HER 11/12
