Chirps from Center Ice

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

GAMEDAY: @ Hershey 12/3


Who: Hershey Bears

Where: Giant Center

When: 5:00 p.m.

Last Game: Last night at home against the Rochester Americans, the Penguins lost 5-2. Teddy Blueger scored both goals, one of them shorthanded. For Hershey, the Bears shutout the Milwaukee Admirals 3-0, Vitek Vanacek had a 21 save shutout.

Last Meeting: November 12 in Hershey, the Penguins won 5-1. Five different Penguins scored and Casey DeSmith stopped 31 of 32 shots.

Record: For WBS: 13-5-0-1 (27 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) // For HER: 10-10-0-3 (23 pts., 6th place Atlantic Division)

Referee(s): Cameron Voss / David Banfield

Linesmen: Richard Jondo / Scott Pomento

Why You Should Care: Wilkes-Barre needs a rebound here in Hershey today. Penguins need to be more disciplined than they were yesterday against Rochester. For Hershey, the Bears were smoked Friday against Lehigh Valley and shutout the Admirals so this will be a nice test for a Bears team who are .500 through the first weekend of December.

Other Game to Watch: Providence, nipping on the Penguins heels, travel to Bridgeport for a meeting against a Sound Tigers team who have an eight game point streak.

Next Five Games: @ LV 12/6, CHA 12/8, @ HER 12/10, SPR 12/13, @ HFD 12/15
