Atlantic Division Semifinal Game 2: Charlotte Checkers (CHA leads 1-0)


Atlantic Division Semifinal — Game 2

Who: Charlotte Checkers

Where: Bojangles Coliseum

When: 6:00 p.m.

Series: Charlotte leads 1-0 (Best of Five)


Last Game: Friday night in Charlotte, the Penguins had a 2-0 lead going into the third period thanks to goals by Andrey Pedan and Daniel Spong but the Checkers charged back for two to tie in the third before scoring in overtime to win Game 1 3-2.

What to watch for: Penguins must win this game to bring it back to Wilkes-Barre 1-1 for potentially three games on home ice to advance. They need to, again, limit penalties, mistakes and maintain composure against a high octane offense that the Checkers employ if they have any hopes of a spit in North Carolina.

Referee(s): Pierre Lambert / Beaudry Halkidis

Linesmen: Libor Suchanek / Ryan Townsend

When is Game 3?: Not till next Thursday, April 26 in Wilkes-Barre.
