Chirps from Center Ice

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

GAMEDAY: @ Springfield 11/23

@     

Who: Springfield Thunderbirds

Where: MassMutual Center

When: 7:05 p.m.

Last Game: Saturday at home against Charlotte, a late goal from Anthony Angello forced overtime, but the Penguins lost 6-5 to the Checkers. For Springfield, the Thunderbirds hoste the Lehigh Valley Phantoms and won 3-2. Michael Hutchinson made 29 saves.

Last Meeting: November 14 in Springfield, you might remember this one. Tristan Jarry scored a goal, the 14th goaltender to do so as the Penguins won 5-1.

Record: For WBS: 8-6-2-1 (19 pts., 5th place Atlantic Division) // For SPR 9-4-0-2 (20 pts., 3rd place Atlantic Division)

Referee(s): Michael Markovic / Ben O’Quinn

Linesmen: Kyle Richetelle / Paul Simeon

Why You Should Care: Expect Sam Miletic back for the Penguins today as Wilkes-Barre has missed the rookie playmaker. Springfield has won two straight and both teams will want to get the post-Thanksgiving weekend started off on the right foot.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

Watch: AHLTV is new and improved and a lot cheaper.

Other Game to Watch: Bridgeport hosts Hartford in a Connecticut clash tonight at Webster Bank Arena.
