January 6, 2018Posted by on
Who: Belleville Senators
Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza
When: 7:05 p.m.
Last Game: Last night at home against Springfield, the Pens won 4-2. Wilkes-Barre scrapped with the Thunderbirds all night, Casey DeSmith stopped 20 of 22 shots. For Belleville, the Senators were in Binghamton last night and lost 6-1. Christian Jaros scored the only goal for Belleville in the loss.
Record: For WBS: 20-10-2-1 (43 pts., 3rd place Atlantic Division) // For BEL: 14-19-0-3 (31 pts., 6th place North Division)
Referee(s): Evgenii Romasko / David Banfield
Linesmen: Bob Goodman / Tom George
Why You Should Care: Penguins can go for five straight wins against a hapless Belleville team that are 3-7 in their last ten. This should be a game that the Penguins win easily, but if they get lax, Belleville could smack the Penguins and stun them with a big win.
Promotion(s): Pens website says, “TBD” – if you are a season ticket holder like me, don’t forget your Jake Guentzel bobblehead voucher.
Other Game to Watch: Pens trail the Lehigh Valley Phantoms by .001 percentage point in the Atlantic and the Phantoms are in Western New York taking on the Rochester Americans.
Next Five Games: @ BEL 1/12, @ LAV 1/13, LV 1/17, @ PRO 1/19, @ HFD 1/21
