Chirps from Center Ice

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

GAMEDAY: vs. Rockford 2/23

vs.     

Who: Rockford IceHogs

Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza

When: 7:05 p.m.

Last Game: Sunday in Allentown against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, the Penguins lost 4-1. J-S Dea scored a shorthanded goal in the loss. For Rockford, the IceHogs hosted the San Antonio Rampage on Sunday and won 4-3. Three different IceHogs scored goals.

Record: For WBS: 30-15-4-1 (65 pts., 2nd place Atlantic Division) // For RFD: 26-22-3-3 (58 pts., 6th place Central Division)

Referee(s): Brandon Blandina / Luke Murray

Linesmen: Jason Mandroc / J.P. Waleski

Why You Should Care: Penguins face off against the IceHogs for the very first time in team history. Rockford is a hard working team that is better than their sixth place in the Central record would indicate. Wilkes-Barre, after a week of practice, should come out and play a lot better than they did last weekend and should hopefully have players back from injury.

Other Game to Watch: Lehigh Valley visits Syracuse. Penguins are there tomorrow.

Next Five Games: @ SYR 2/24, vs. HER 2/25, @ GR 3/2, @ RFD 3/3, @ MIL 3/4
