Atlantic Division Semifinal Game 3: Charlotte Checkers (CHA leads 2-0)

vs.     

Atlantic Division Semifinal — Game 3

Who: Charlotte Checkers

Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza

When: 7:05 p.m.

Series: Charlotte leads 2-0 (Best of Five)

Last Game: Saturday night in Charlotte, the Penguins and Checkers were 1-1 late in the third period when Josiah Didier scored to give the Checkers the lead. Charlotte scored two empty net goals and took Game 2 4-1. Joseph Cramarossa scored in the games opening minute to give the Penguins at the time, a 1-0 lead.

What to watch for: It is going to have to be a micromanaged game for those that dress tonight for the Penguins. One more loss and the season is over for Wilkes-Barre. The Checkers won seven straight coming in and the first two games in the series for a commanding 2-0 lead in the series. Penguins absolutely must capitalize on opportunities given. One power play goal may not do it tonight. But, as history has indicated, if there is any team that can come back from a deficit, it is these Penguins.

Referee(s): Reid Anderson / Jeremy Tufts

Linesmen: Ryan Knapp / J.P. Waleski

When is Game 4?: The Penguins have to win tonight for that to become a reality. If they do, it’s Saturday at 7:05 in Wilkes-Barre.
