Chirps from Center Ice

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

GAMEDAY: @ Charlotte 3/13


Who: Charlotte Checkers

Where: Bojangles’ Coliseum

When: 7:00 p.m.

Last Game: Saturday at home against Grand Rapids, the Penguins won 2-1. Adam Johnson scored a shorthanded goal, Kevin Czuczman scored in the third period and Anthony Peters stopped 32 of 33 shots. For Charlotte, the Checkers beat the Hartford Wolf Pack 7-3. Alex Nedeljkovic scored a goal. Why does this matter? He was the goaltender.

Last Meeting: December 8 back in Wilkes-Barre, the Penguins lost 2-1. Jeremy Smith stopped 22 of 23 Penguins shots. Daniel Sprong scored for the Penguins.

Record: For WBS: 35-17-4-2 (76 pts., 2nd place Atlantic Division) // For CHA: 35-24-0-3 (73 pts., 4th place Atlantic Division)

Referee(s): Peter MacDougall / Liam Sewell

Linesmen: Tim Lyons / Terry Wicklum

Why You Should Care: Checkers come into tonight winners of four straight looking to make it five over a Penguins team they have had the number of. Both teams are gunning for a playoff spot, so expect another closely contested affair tonight in Charlotte.

Other Game to Watch: Everyone in the Atlantic Division will be watching us, so in the Central, Iowa visits Rockford in a Central Division contest.

Next Five Games: @ CHA 3/14, vs. HFD 3/17, vs. HER 3/18, @ TOR 2/20, @ BNG 3/24
