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

GAMEDAY: vs. Lehigh Valley 11/27

vs.  

Who: Lehigh Valley Phantoms

Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza

When: 7:05 p.m.

Last Game: Saturday at home against Charlotte, the Penguins were shutout 1-0. Dustin Tokarski stopped 26 of 27 shots….For Lehigh Valley, the Phantoms were dealt a 2-1 setback at home against Belleville Saturday. Greg Carey had the lone goal for the Phantoms.

Last Meeting: November 16 in Wilkes-Barre, the Pens won 2-1. Both David Warsofsky and Sam Miletic had a goal and an assist and Dustin Tokarski stopped 31 of 32 shots. Mikhail Vorobyev scored for the Phantoms

Record: For WBS: 11-6-1-1 (24 pts., 3rd place Atlantic Division) // For LV: 8-6-1-4 (21 pts., 6th place Atlantic Division)

Referees: Reid Anderson / Peter Schlittenhardt

Linesmen: Tom DellaFranco / Ryan Knapp

Why You Should Care: Wilkes-Barre looks to get back in the win column after having their six game win streak come to an end Saturday. They can make some separation in this mini home and home series against the Phantoms with four points, but the Phantoms aren’t going top make it easy. Whoever starts tonight (I’m expecting Casey DeSmith) probably doesn’t make the trip Friday to Allentown to start Saturday against Bridgeport back here at home.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

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

Promotion(s): None.

Other Game to Watch: Bridgeport has won two in a row with the last win coming Sunday at home against Springfield. The Sound Tigers head to Massachusetts to take on the Thunderbirds.

Next Five Games: @ LV 11/29, vs. BRI 11/30, vs. TEX 12/6, vs. TEX 12/7, @ HER 12/8
