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

GAMEDAY: @ Bridgeport 12/21

@    

Who: Bridgeport Sound Tigers

Where: Webster Bank Arena

Last Game: Last night at home against Providence, the Penguins won 1-0. 23 saves shutout for Dustin Tokarski and a power play goal for Anthony Anegoo. For Bridgeport, the Sound Tigers were in Springfield and lost 3-1. Nick Schilkey scored the only goal for Bridgeport in the loss.

Last Meeting: November 30 in Wilkes-Barre, the Penguins won 5-2. Oula Palve and Matt Abt bagged their first professional goals. Casey DeSmith stopped 26 shots.

Referees: Brandon Blandina / Mike Dietrich

Linesmen: Nick Briganti / Brian Pincus

Why You Should Care: I am going to be interested in seeing who comes out first for the Penguins tonight. Dustin Tokarski is on a roll and has won each of the two games that Wilkes-Barre / Scranton has won this month while Casey DeSmith is struggling right now it would seem. Is now a perfect time to get DeSmith back on track against the last place Sound Tigers or does Penguins Head Coach Mike Vellucci keep Tokarski’s momentum going and hopefully the teams heading into the Christmas break? We don’t have to wait long to find out.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

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

Other Game to Watch: Providence hits up Hartford tonight looking to get some space between them and the Wolf Pack in the race for the top of the Atlantic Division.

Next Five Games: vs. LV 12/27, @ HER 12/28, vs. SPR 12/31, vs. HER 1/3, vs. SPR 1/4
