Chirps from Center Ice

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

GAMEDAY: @ Toronto 12/1

@     

Who: Toronto Marlies

Where: Coca-Cola Coliseum

When: 4:00 p.m.

Last Game: Last night in Rochester, the Pens lost 1-0. Scott Wedgewood recorded a 35 save shutout for the Americans. For Toronto, the Marlies were last in action on Wednesday when they defeated the Cleveland Monsters on the road 5-4 in overtime. Chris Mueller scored the overtime game winning goal for the Marlies.

Record: For WBS: 9-9-3-1 (22 pts., 6th place Atlantic Division) // For TOR: 8-7-2-2 (20 pts., 5th place North Division)

Referees: Mike Campbell / Olivier Gouin

Linesmen: Matt Mannella / Jean Menard

Why You Should Care: I would have to guess that the Penguins were upset at the lack of offense last night in Rochester so we will see if anything turns up north of the border this afternoon in Toronto against a rested Marlies team. If the Pens implement the same defensive approach as they did last night in Rochester, they should be OK.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

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

Other Game to Watch: Hartford has been on the ascent of recent and host the class of the Atlantic, the Charlotte Checkers later on tonight in the Connecticut capital.

Next Five Games: vs. CLE 12/7, vs. BRI 12/8, @ HER 12/9, @ SPR 12/12, vs. LV 12/15
