Chirps from Center Ice

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

GAMEDAY: @ Charlotte 1/25

Who: Charlotte Checkers

Where: Bojangles’ Coliseum

When: 6:00 p.m.

Last Game / Last Meeting: Last night in Charlotte, the Penguins won 5-4. Cole Cassels figured into every single goal, scoring two and assisting on three others. David Warsofsky also had a big game, scoring a pair of goals and assisting on two others. Charlotte’s Eetu Luostarinen had a goal and an assist for the Checkers in the loss

Record: For WBS: 21-16-3-4 (49 pts., 6th place Atlantic Division) // For CHA: 24-15-3-0 (51 pts., 4th place Atlantic Division)

Referees: Corey Syvret / Jason Williams

Linesmen: Tyson Baker / Tim Lyons

Why You Should Care: Wilkes-Barer can, with help from out of town, get to fourth place in the Atlantic with a win tonight and tie the Checkers in points. But before you count points you don’t have, the Penguins need to take care of business again here against the Checkers. Don’t expect another five point night from Cole Cassels, but expect the Penguins to play a similar style to what they had going last night.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

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

Other Game to Watch: That, “help from out of town” I was talking about earlier involves the Bridgeport Sound Tigers beating the Springfield Thunderbirds.

Next Five Games: vs. LV 1/31, vs. BRI 2/1, vs. BNG 2/5, vs. HER 2/7, vs. LV 2/8
