Chirps from Center Ice

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

GAMEDAY: vs. Bridgeport 11/30

vs.    

Who: Bridgeport Sound Tigers

Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza

When: 7:05 p.m.

Last Game: Last night in Allentown, the Pens came back from a 5-0 deficit to earn a point in a 6-5 overtime loss. Andrew Agozzino had two goals and one assist….For Bridgeport, the Sound Tigers hosted Springfield and won 4-1. It’s the Sound Tigers fourth win in a row. Travis St. Denis scored a pair of goals in the win.

Last Meeting: October 19 in Bridgeport, Penguins won 3-2 in a shootout. Andrew Agozzino had a goal and an assist. Casey DeSmith stopped 23 shots. Penguins scored in all three shootout attempts.

Record: For WBS: 12-6-2-1 (27 pts., 2nd place Atlantic Division) // For BRI: 8-11-3-1 (20 pts., 7th place Atlantic Division)

Referees: Brandon Blandina / Olivier Gouin

Linesmen: Tyler Loftus / J.P. Waleski

Why You Should Care: Bridgeport comes in a rejuvenated team on a four game winning streak. Should be a good test for both teams, the Sound Tigers against one of the Atlantic Division’s elite teams in the Penguins and the Penguins against a team that has won four straight, is firing on all cylinders and clicking at the right time.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

Watch: AHLTV is back for another season and better than ever. Despite what you see on the website, tonight’s game is NOT going to be broadcast locally.

Promotion(s): HOCKEY FIGHTS CANCER — Join us in the fight to put cancer on ice.  The Penguins will be wearing special Hockey Fights Cancer jerseys which will be auctioned off, with proceeds going to the Mario Lemieux Foundation. Stop by the American Cancer Society’s table on the concourse and make a donation in return for a (temporary) pink hair streak.   And make some noise with special thunder sticks, provided by Geisinger.*

Other Game to Watch: I want to see how Lehigh Valley plays against Hartford tonight. The Wolf Pack have company at the top of the division and the Phantoms yakked up a five goal lead last night against the Penguins.

Next Five Games: vs. TEX 12/6, vs. TEX 12/7, @ HER 12/8, @ ROC 12/11, @ CLE 12/13
