WBS Penguins @ Senators 11/26

Saturday, November 26, 2011
Matt Rust is making the most of his time in the lineup.
After a tough shootout loss last night and frustration showing, the WBS Penguins travel to Binghamton tonight in need of a win to end a five game winless streak (0-2-0-3). The Senators lost 4-1 to the Syracuse Crunch so they will also be looking to bounce back.

By the numbers
WBS Penguins: 20 games played, 10-5-1-4, 25 points - 1st Place East Division
Binghamton: 20 games played, 7-11-1-1, 16 points - 5th Place East Division

Injuries have taken their toll on the Senators who were already without last year's AHL MVP in Corey Locke. They are now also without Mark Parrish and Jim O'Brien. The Penguins need to take advantage of a thinner lineup.

For the Penguins, Brian Gibbons, Paul Thompson and Niko Dimitrakos were the forward scratches. All three are healthy, but coach John Hynes has been unhappy with their play. It'll be interesting to see who is scratched up front tonight.

Go Penguins!
