Weekly: Penguins Hit the Road for Six-Game Road Trip
Wednesday, Jan. 8 - PENGUINS 3 vs. Charlotte 6
Anthony Angello and Adam Johnson both delivered a goal and an assist for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, but three unanswered strikes by Charlotte proved to be the difference.
Friday, Jan. 10 - PENGUINS 1 vs. Hershey 2 (SO)
Despite suppressing the Bears' offense all night, the Penguins lost to Hershey in the sixth round of a shootout. The Pens out-shot the Bears, 30-15, in regulation, and limited Hershey to three shots in the third period.
Saturday, Jan. 11 - PENGUINS 3 vs. Hartford 0
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton shut-out the East's top team in front of a raucous home crowd. Kevin Roy's first goal as a Penguin opened the scoring late in the middle frame, and empty-netters from David Warsofsky and Anthony Angello steered the Penguins to victory. Casey DeSmith made 25 saves.
The Week Ahead
Wednesday, Jan. 15 - PENGUINS at Texas
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton visits the Texas Stars for the first time in franchise history. Back in December, the Stars came to Northeast PA and took a two-game set from the Pens. After starting the year 3-13-0-2, Texas is 14-4-2-0 in its last 20 games.
Friday, Jan. 17 - PENGUINS at Texas
