Chirps from Center Ice

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

GAMEDAY: @ Lehigh Valley 10/11

Who: Lehigh Valley Phantoms

Where: PPL Center

When: 7:05 p.m.

Last Game: For the Penguins, they opened their 2019-20 campaign with a win last Saturday over Hershey with a 4-3 win. Stefan Noesen scored two goals and Casey DeSmith had 36 saves. For Lehigh Valley, they opened their 2019-20 season at home against the Providence Bruins and were shutout 2-0.

Record: For WBS: 1-0-0-0 (2 pts., 3rd place Atlantic Division) // For LV: 0-1-0-0 (0 pts., 8th place Atlantic Division)

Referees: Olivier Gouin / Carter Sandlak

Linesmen: Tom DellaFranco / Bill Lyons

Why You Should Care: Lehigh Valley signed a ton of offense this past offseason, yet were shutout at home in embarrassing fashion against the Providence Bruins. After a week to sit on the lack of goal scoring, look for the Phantoms to jump on the Penguins early on. Should be a good litmus test for these two teams who will meet 11 more times this season.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

Watch: AHLTV is back for another season and better than ever.

Other Game to Watch: The Charlotte Checkers hang a banner tonight at home in their opener against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

Next Five Games: vs. UTI 10/12, @ HER 10/13, vs. BNG 10/16, @ BRI 10/19, @ BNG 10/23
