📝 : Pens Fall To P-Bruins, 5-2
Wednesday morning’s game is the second of six meetings between the Penguins and Thunderbirds this season. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton defeated Springfield in a shootout, 3-2, on opening night.
The Penguins currently sit in fifth place in the Atlantic Division with a 7-5-1-1 mark (16 pts), while the Thunderbirds are percentage points ahead with a 7-3-0-2 mark (16 pts).
After starting the season with a 7-0-0-2 mark, the Thunderbirds have now dropped three consecutive games entering Wednesday’s action. All three losses came on the road.
Wednesday’s tilt is the first of three morning games for the Penguins this season. They’ll face the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in 10:30am games on January 23 and April 2, both in Connecticut.
Anthony Angello’s five goals are tied for 12th among all AHL rookies, just two behind the top first-year scorers (three players tied with seven).
Derek Grant posted his third goal in four games for the Penguins on Sunday afternoon, and now has goals in back-to-back games.
The Penguins will return to their home ice next Friday, Nov. 16, in what promises to be a heated head-to-head with the Charlotte Checkers. Game time between the Penguins and Checkers is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza.
