Chirps from Center Ice

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

GAMEDAY: vs. Toronto 11/8

vs.     

Who: Toronto Marlies

For Toronto, the Marlies beat the Lehigh Valley Phantoms on Sunday by a score of 5-1. Trevor Moore scored two goals and Calvin Pickard stopped 35 of 36 shots.

Why You Should Care: Biggest test of this young season lies ahead for the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins tonight against the Toronto Marlies. The Marlies are about as complete a team tha you are going to find in the AHL. The Penguins will need to be almost perfect tonight in all areas if they want to come home with the two points.

Promotion(s): None

Other Game to Watch: For a Wednesday, a very busy day in the AHL with three games having been played already this morning. I like the North Division match up between the Binghamton Devils and the Belleville Senators this evening in Ontario.

Next Five Games: PRO 11/11, @ HER 11/12, @ BNG 11/17, LV 11/22, @ SYR 11/24
