GAMEDAY: vs. Milwaukee 12/1


Who: Milwaukee Admirals

Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza

When: 7:05 p.m.

Last Game: Saturday at home against Syracuse, the Penguins put up a valiant effort in the third period, but couldn’t overcome the two goals that the Crunch scored in the second period and lost 4-3. Freddie Tiffels scored his first AHL goal of his career. For Milwaukee, the Admirals were in Des Moines, Iowa taking on the Iowa Wild on Tuesday and won 4-2. Goaltender Anders Lindback stopped 40 of 42 shots and was named first star of the game. Mark Zengerle also added a goal and had two assists.

Referee(s): Cameron Voss / Beaudry Halkidis

Why You Should Care: Penguins face an unfamiliar foe from the Western Conference in the Milwaukee Admirals. The Penguins will have a new tandem in goal tonight with Casey DeSmith getting called up Tuesday. Sean Maguire was recalled, then Colin Smith yo-yo’ed to Wheeling and back, then Maguire got sick necessitating the Pens to sign Anthony Peters to a PTO Friday morning. The goaltending situation is in flux, putting it mildly.
