Wow! It’s hard to believe the 2014-15 season of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins hockey is entering its final month of play. The team has four regular season home games on its plate, and plenty of fun in store for you during the month of April. Here’s a look at each of the remaining home contests on our schedule:
FRIDAY, APRIL 4 vs. BRIDGEPORT SOUND TIGERS
It’s our final ANYTHING GOES FRIDAY of the season when the Sound Tigers make their lone Wilkes-Barre appearance of the season. Cross Valley Federal Credit Union will be on hand with our $1,000 giveaway, we’ll be honoring the 2013 Casey Classic High School Hockey Tournament winners during the first intermission.
Also, it’s a ROBO’S READERS night, where kids participating in our school reading program will be on hand. And YOU can contribute to our CHILDREN’S BOOK DRIVE. Bring a new book for readers ages 5-12 to the game, and we will donate them to local children’s charities throughout NEPA. You can drop books off at the Fan Assistance Booth behind section 108.
It’s also the first night of our ALLIED SERVICES MYSTERY PUCK SALE. Get your autographed Penguins pucks for just $10 apiece, and you could also win a game-used stick from one of your favorite players. The sale goes on as long as pucks remain!
SATURDAY, APRIL 5 vs. ALBANY DEVILS
It’s our annual Girl Scouts game, and we’ll be welcoming Daisy, Brownie and Girl Scout members during the night.
The first 5,000 fans through the doors will receive a TOM KOSTOPOULOS BOBBLEHEAD, courtesy of Dodge and Eyewitness News. Plus you could win $500 in the McCarthy Tire Toss during the second intermission.
SATURDAY, APRIL 12 vs. BINGHAMTON SENATORS
The force will be with the Penguins as we host our first ever STAR WARS NIGHT. Members of the REBEL LEGION and MANDALORIAN MERCS costuming clubs will be at the arena to pose for pictures with fans, who are also encouraged to dress up like their favorite STAR WARS characters. Plus the first 5,000 fans will receive a special Penguins Star Wars mug.
And since we are talking about events that took place “A long time ago…” we’ll be flashing back to our past by wearing special THROWBACK JERSEYS to the Penguins inaugural 1999-2000 season. It’s the perfect way for us to celebrate the end of our 15th regular season, while also honoring our past. The jerseys will be up for auction on the night as well, so don’t miss your chance to take one of these retro sweaters home.
We’re also hosting a FOOD DRIVE benefitting the St. Vincent De Paul Kitchen in downtown Wilkes-Barre. Be sure to bring a non-perishable food item (or two, or three, or four…) to the game and drop them off outside of the East Gate. Items especially needed include coffee, non dairy creamer, canned soups, tuna and peanut butter.
SUNDAY, APRIL 13 vs. TORONTO MARLIES
It’s our annual FAN APPRECIATION NIGHT and TEAM AWARDS game. Join us early for the pregame on ice festivities, then stick around after the game as 10 lucky fans will have a chance to shoot for a new vehicle from Dodge. Plus 20 season ticket holders will take home the jerseys off the players’ backs, and our kids club postgame skate will take place. And everyone who comes to the game receives a scratch off card with prizes from Pens sponsors.
Good seats for the remaining Penguins home games are available at the arena box office, online at TicketMaster.com or by calling the Penguins at 570-208-7367.
