Chirps from Center Ice

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

GAMEDAY: @ Providence 2/23

Why You Should Care: Wilkes-Barre looks to sweep the weekend in Providence against a very tough Bruins team. Last time the Penguins were in Rhode Island they looked listless and lost. If this weekend is any indicator, they were unfazed at anything that the Bears on Friday and the Wolf Pack Saturday threw at them. They need that again Sunday afternoon against the Bruins.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

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

Other Game to Watch: Springfield hosts Syracuse. They are both on 60 points and pushing for a playoff spot.

Next Five Games: vs. PRO 2/26, @ SYR 2/28, @ HER 2/29, @ BNG 3/6, vs. BRI 3/7
