|The scene at the end of the last meeting between these two teams in Wilkes-Barre.|
The Penguins are coming off a disappointing 2-1 loss to the Albany Devils last Wednesday, where as the Bears last game before the break was a 5-2 win over Syracuse. The Penguins are 4-1-1 against the Bears this season and look to put a stranglehold on the season series tonight.
Projected WBS lineup:
Bryan Lerg - Ben Street - Colin McDonald
Eric Tangradi - Ryan Craig - Geoff Walker
Brian Gibbons - Matt Rust - Nick Petersen
Brandon DeFazio - Zach Sill - Paul Thompson/Ryan Schnell
Brian Strait - Carl Sneep
Boris Valabik - Philip Samuelsson
Cody Wild - Alex Grant
Joey Mormina still hasn't resumed skating since Corey Cowick's cheap shot at the end of a game earlier this month. Brian Day is still not ready to return to the lineup. Both are day-to-day.
Should be a dog fight tonight. Both teams have a lot to play for, both want to get off to a good start after the lay off and both teams have a pure hatred for each other. A classic rivalry game tonight. Should be fun. Live updates on Twitter right here plus a recap on the blog after the game.
