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

GAMEDAY: vs. Cleveland 2/1

vs.     

Who: Cleveland Monsters

Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza

When: 7:05 p.m.

Last Game: Last Saturday in Binghamton, the Penguins won 5-4 in overtime. The recently recalled Teddy Blueger scored the overtime game winner, Adam Johnson had a goal and two assists. For Cleveland, the Monsters beat the Chicago Wolves at home last Saturday in overtime 4-3 with ex-Penguin Mark Letestu scoring the overtime game winning goal at :42.

Last Meeting: December 7 in Wilkes-Barre, John Muse had a 32 save shutout as the Penguins beat the Monsters 1-0. Ryan Haggerty scored for the Penguins.

Record: For WBS: 22-18-4-1 (49 pts., 6th place Atlantic Division) // For CLE: 21-17-4-1 (47 pts., 5th place North Division)

Referees: Brandon Schrader / Ryan Jenken

Linesmen: Tyler Loftus / Jason Mandroc

Why You Should Care: Penguins are coming out of the All-Star break after winning three straight games to get there. How do they fare against a team that have a 3-0 record against without their leading scorer Teddy Blueger? Pens still need wins in order to keep up in an ultra competitive Atlantic Division so they cannot be complacent tonight against the Monsters.
