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

GAMEDAY: vs. Bridgeport 12/19

vs.     

Who: Bridgeport Sound Tigers

Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza

When: 7:05 p.m.

Last Game / Last Meeting: Sunday in Bridgeport, the Pens were shutout 1-0. Sebastian Aho scored the only goal for Bridgeport, who got 33 saves from Christopher Gibson. Anthony Peters took the loss, stopping 24 of 25 shots.

Record: For WBS: 14-11-3-1 (32 pts., 5th place Atlantic Division) // For BRI: 17-8-3-1 (38 pts., 2nd place North Division)

Referees: Furman South / Peter MacDougall

Linesmen: J.P. Waleski / Ryan Knapp

Why You Should Care: Penguins want revenge on Sunday’s 1-0 setback against the Sound Tigers. Expect Christopher Gibson again in goal for Bridgeport against Tristan Jarry. J-S Dea should be back in the lineup and depending on things, the Penguins may get Garrett Wilson back as well. Things could be very different between these two teams a little over 72 hours since they last met.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.
