Chirps from Center Ice

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

GAMEDAY: vs. Bridgeport 12/8

vs.     

Who: Bridgeport Sound Tigers

Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza

When: 3:05 p.m.

Last Game: Last night against the Cleveland Monsters, the Pens won 1-0. John Muse had a 32 save shutout, Ryan Haggerty scored a power play goal. For Bridgeport, the Sound Tigers were off Friday but played on Wednesday and beat the Hartford Wolf Pack at home 2-1. Chris Bourque struck on the power play and Sebastian Aho had two assists for the win.

Last Meeting: November 4 in Bridgeport was a wild game. Zach Aston-Reese had a hat trick and an assist, Ethan Prow had three assists, Garrett Wilson had two goals and an assist but the Penguins lost 8-5. Josh Ho-Sang had four assists.

Record: For WBS: 10-10-3-1 (24 pts., 7th place Atlantic Division) // For BRI: 14-7-3-1 (32 pts., 2nd place North Division)

Referees: Chris Waterstradt / Corey Syvret

Linesmen: J.P. Waleski / Jason Mandroc

Why You Should Care: Wilkes-Barre will be looking to ride the momentum from last night’s gritty win over Cleveland against a divisional foe in Bridgeport this afternoon. Expect Anthony Peters in goal for the Pens. The Penguins used a conservative approach against the Monsters Friday, will the same approach work against the Sound Tigers?

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

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

Promotion(s): PENGUINS TRADING CARD STRIP #1 — The first 4,000 fans will receive a Penguins card strip, featuring five different players. Stick around after the Penguins game to watch the Wilkes University Colonels in action against Nazareth College.

Other Game to Watch: Hartford visits Hershey tonight which should be a good measuring stick game for both teams.

Next Five Games: @ HER 12/9, @ SPR 12/12, vs. LV 12/15, @ BRI 12/16, vs. BRI 12/19
