What you missed…
A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins
Who: Cleveland Monsters
Where: Quicken Loans Arena
When: 7:00 p.m.
Last Game: This past Saturday in their home opener, the Penguins defeated the Springfield Thunderbirds 3-2 vis shootout. Zach Aston-Reese scored in regulation and in the shootout round. For Cleveland, the Monsters were in Toronto on Monday as the Marlies raised their 2018 Calder Cup Championship banner and spoiled the homecoming for the defending champs, handing the Marlies a 5-3 loss. Zac Dalpe had a pair of goals.
Record: For WBS: 1-0-0-0 (2 pts., 4th place Atlantic Division) // For CLE: 3-0-0-0 (6 pts., 1st place North Division)
Referee(s): Brandon Biggers / Michael Markovic
Linesmen: Ray King / Brendan Lewis
Why You Should Care: Big tests for both sides tonight in The Land. The Penguins are coming off a tough battle that they walked away from victorious Saturday against a good Springfield team and the Monsters sit atop the North Division after jumping out to a 3-0 start. Wilkes-Barre can’t underestimate Cleveland and the Monsters want to see how they stack up against one of the AHL’s better franchises. Should be a good one tonight.
