Chirps from Center Ice

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

GAMEDAY: vs. Syracuse 11/9


Who: Syracuse Crunch

Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza

When: 7:05 p.m.

Last Game: Last night in Utica, the Pens got two late goals :34 apart by Zach Trotman and Jordy Bellerive and defeated the Comets 2-1. Dustin Tokarski stopped 22 shots en route to his first win as a Penguin. For Syracuse, the Crunch hosted the Belleville Senators and won in overtime 4-3. Alex Barre-Boulet scored a pair of goals for the Crunch in the win.

Record: For WBS: 6-5-1-1 (14 pts., 6th place Atlantic Division) // For SYR: 6-3-2-0 (14 pts., 6th place North Division)

Referees: Conor O’Donnell / Brandon Schrader

Linesmen: Jud Ritter / Tyler Loftus

Why You Should Care: Two teams with nearly identical records face off tonight in Wilkes-Barre. The highly potent offense of the Syracuse Crunch will be a good test for a Penguins team that really bottled up the Comets last night in Utica. Should be a fun one tonight.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.
