Penguins Weekly Rewind

Friday, Nov. 19 - PENGUINS 4 at Springfield 5 (SO)

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton engaged in a frenzied, back-and-forth game in Springfield, but fell short in a shootout. The Penguins opened the scoring with a pair of power-play goals and Juuso Riikola netted a career-best three assists in the first period. Down 4-3 in the third period, Cam Lee used his first goal of the season to force overtime.

Saturday, Nov. 20 - PENGUINS 3 at Providence 1

Drew O'Connor scored twice and Louis Domingue backstopped the Penguins to their first win in Providence since Mar. 1, 2019. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton spread its scoring evenly across all three periods and received the game-winner from Kyle Olson midway through the game. Domingue fended off a firing squad by the Bruins in the third period and finished with 42 saves.

The Week Ahead

Tuesday, Nov. 23 - PENGUINS at Checkers

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton visits the Queen City for the first time this season, although the Penguins and Checkers have already met three times this season. Charlotte owns a 2-1-0-0 edge in the season series.

Wednesday, Nov. 24 - PENGUINS at Checkers

The Penguins and Checkers clash for the second game of a back-to-back set. Cole Schwindt leads all players in the season series with three points, all of which came in a hat trick performance on Nov. 13.

Saturday, Nov. 27 - PENGUINS vs. Providence

Rested after their long road trip and a Thanksgiving food coma, the Penguins return to Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza. They will host their annual Hockey Fights Cancer Night, benefitting the Mario Lemieux Foundation and the PA Prostate Cancer Coalition.
