Chirps from Center Ice

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

GAMEDAY: @ Lehigh Valley 4/14


Who: Lehigh Valley Phantoms

Where: PPL Center

When: 7:05 p.m.

Last Game: Last night in Springfield, the Penguins won 3-2, Daniel Sprong scored his 31st goal of the season, breaking the old rookie records set by Michel Ouellet. For Lehigh Valley, the Phantoms won at home over Bridgeport 5-2. Danick Martel had a pair of goals. Dustin Tokarski stopped 29 of 31 shots.

Last Meeting: February 18 in Allentown, the Penguins lost 4-1. J-S Dea had the only goal for the Pens in the loss.

Record: For WBS: 44-22-6-2 (96 pts., 2nd place Atlantic Division) // For LV: 46-19-5-5 (102 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division)

Referee(s): Terry Koharski / Pierre Lambert

Linesmen: Luke Murray / Jud Ritter

Why You Should Care: Penguins are still looking to solidify home ice. A win or a point gets them this. Question is what lineup does Lehigh Valley trot out in their final home game of the season with nothing left to play for?

Other Game to Watch: Providence visits Springfield. A Bruins loss guarantees a first round matchup against Charlotte for the Penguins with home ice to be decided.

Remaining Games: @ HER 4/15
