Jarry Scores In Pens 5-1 Win
Tristan Jarry became the first Wilkes-Barre/Scranton goaltender, and the 14th in league history, to score a goal in the team’s win over the Springfield Thunderbirds on Wednesday afternoon.
Wednesday’s game was the first of three morning starts the Penguins will take part in this season. They’ll also face the Bridgeport Sound Tigers on January 23 and April 2 at 10:30am.
This weekend’s tow-game set against the Checkers is the third time in the past four weeks the Penguins have played the same team on back-to-back nights.
The Checkers enter Friday’s acton with the best record in the AHL at 11-3-1-0, but are winless in their past two games (0-1-1-0).
The Penguins currently sit in fourth place in the Atlantic Division with an 8-5-1-1 mark.
Sam Lafferty is currently tied for sixth among AHL rookies with 12 points (4+8), while teammate Anthony Angello is tied for fifth among first year players with six goals, just one off of the league lead for rookies.
Ethan Prow is tied for sixth among AHL defensemen with four goals. He is also tied for fourth with a plus-14 rating.
The Checkers lead the AHL with five shorthanded goals, and forward Saku Maenalanen is tied for the league lead with a pair of shorthanded tallies.
Charlotte center Nicolas Roy is tied for second in the league with three game-winning goals.
Following this weekend, the Penguins and Checkers won’t meet again until January 11 and 12 in Charlotte.
