Weekly: Penguins on a Roll with Five-Game Winning Streak

November 19, 2019 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins News Release

Weekly Rewind

Wednesday, Nov. 13 - PENGUINS 1 vs. Hershey 0 (SO)

Casey DeSmith went the distance for his second consecutive shutout, not only holding the Bears off the scoresheet in regulation, but also throughout overtime and three rounds of a shootout. Stefan Noesen had the only conversion of the shootout, lifting the Penguins to victory.

Friday, Nov. 15 - PENGUINS 4 vs. Springfield 1

Andrew Agozzino tallied twice in the opening frame, and Kevin Czuczman and Ryan Haggerty chipped in the second and third periods for the Penguins to avenge their shootout loss to Springfield from earlier in the month. Even though his shutout streak came to an end, DeSmith posted a season-high 41 saves.

Saturday, Nov. 16 - PENGUINS 2 vs. Lehigh Valley 1

After three games in Allentown, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton hosted its PA Turnpike rival for the first time this season. It was a successful defense of home ice, as Sam Miletic and David Warsofsky both turned in one-goal, one-assist outings while Dustin Tokarski shut the door on his former team with 31 stops.

The Week Ahead

Friday, Nov. 22 - PENGUINS at Springfield

The Penguins face-off against the Thunderbirds for the third time this month. Both teams have one win in the season series thus far. Springfield just received forward Dryden Hunt from Florida (NHL) this week, who had 44 points (23G-21A) in 51 games with the T-Birds last season.

Saturday, Nov. 23 - PENGUINS vs. Charlotte

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Charlotte square up for the first time this season, marking the first time Mike Vellucci will coach against his championship-winning squad from last year. Furthermore, David Warsofsky's brother, Ryan Warsofsky, is in his first season as Checkers' head coach.
