GAMEDAY: vs. Lehigh Valley 11/22



Who: Lehigh Valley Phantoms

Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza

When: 7:05 p.m.

Last Game: Friday in Binghamton, the Penguins won 4-3. Christian Thomas scored the game winning goal in the third period after returning from Finland after playing in the Karjala Cup. For Lehigh Valley, the Phantoms were in Laval, QC for a meeting with the Rocket and won 5-2. The Phantoms struck three times on the power play.

Last Meeting: A classic back on November 3 saw the Penguins win in a shootout 6-5. Ryan Haggerty scored twice and Garrett Wilson had two assists. Christian Thomas scored the only goal in the shootout round between the two teams.

Record: For WBS: 11-2-0-1 (23 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) // For LV: 10-5-0-2 (22 pts., 2nd place Atlantic Division)

Referee(s): Peter Schlittenhardt / Pierre Lambert

Linesmen: Tom DellaFranco / Luke Murray

Why You Should Care: Can these two replicate that thriller on November 3? Penguins have points in eleven straight. Can they make it 12 in a row? The Phantoms will be getting up for this game and the Penguins better be ready to match Lehigh Valley’s intensity.

Promotion(s): None

Other Game to Watch: Springfield visits Hershey and the Thunderbirds are on the rise, winning three of their last four, so this should be an interesting matchup.

Next Five Games: @ SYR 11/24, SYR 11/25, MIL 12/1, RCH 12/2, @ HER 12/3
