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

Last Meeting: February 22 in Wilkes-Barre, the Penguins lost 4-2. The Bears scored three third period goals.

Record: For WBS: 30-24-6-3 (69 pts., 5th place Atlantic Division) // For HER: 35-22-3-4 (77 pts., 3rd place Atlantic Division)

Why You Should Care: Gotta make this game in hand on Providence and Lehigh Valley count. This past Sunday was a let down, losing 4-2. The Penguins have to win this game if they want to be considered a contender for a playoff spot in the Atlantic Division. A tough task against a Hershey team that has had the Pens number lies ahead.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

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

Other Game to Watch: Charlotte hosts Syracuse in what very well may be an Eastern Conference Finals matchup.

Next Five Games: vs. LV 3/22, @ LV 3/23, vs. SPR 3/24, vs. PRO 3/27, vs. SPR 3/30
