GAMEDAY: vs. Lehigh Valley 12/27

vs.     

Who: Lehigh Valley Phantoms

Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza

When: 7:05 p.m.

Last Game / Last Meeting: Was this past Saturday in Wilkes-Barre and a game that the Phantoms won 3-2. The Penguins led the game going into the third period, but Nicolas Aube-Kubel and Oskar Lindblom scored in the third. The Penguins put up 41 shots.

Record: For WBS: 16-9-2-1 (35 pts., 4th place Atlantic Division) // For LV: 19-9-2-2 (42 pts., 3rd place Atlantic Division)

Referee(s): Peter Schlittenhardt / Olivier Gouin

Linesmen: Tom DellaFranco / Ryan Knapp

Why You Should Care: Well, the Penguins looked good for the most part against the Phantoms on Saturday, but then that third period happened and the game got away from them. They need a better start and a strong finish if they want to have success tonight against the Phantoms. You should probably look for Michael Leighton to get the start tonight against Lehigh Valley as well,

Promotion(s): None

Other Game to Watch: Bridgeport hosts Hershey. The Sound Tigers will be looking to advance into the top four in the Atlantic while Hershey will be trying to stop their tail spin.

Next Five Games: HFD 12/29, @ HER 12/30, BRI 1/3, SPR 1/5, BEL 1/6
