WBS Penguins Mauled - Lose 6-0

Tuesday, December 27, 2011
Without Schnell, the Penguins didn't really have anyone to drop the gloves and do some damage.
In a rather lopsided tilt tonight, the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins were unable to match the effort of the Hershey Bears and drop a 6-0 decision.  Not many positives to take away from tonight's game except for the fact that the two teams rematch tomorrow night at the Giant Center.

Brad Thiessen has just not been himself as of late. He surrendered six goals on 23 shots tonight and looked a little late on some plays. I'd be confused if Scott Munroe didn't lead the Pens out of the tunnel in Hershey tomorrow night. I'm actually surprised he wasn't brought in tonight.

The Bears scored three in the first period and three more in the third period.  An ugly game to watch if you were a Penguins fan.

Boris Valabik was slashed on the hand during the first period tonight. He returned for two shifts in the middle frame but missed the rest of the game. His status is unknown right now and with Joey Mormina still not skating, a defenseman may be needed.

Ryan Schnell was the only healthy scratch tonight. Mormina (upper body), Brian Day and Keven Veilleux are all still out.

Rematch tomorrow night. I think the Penguins will come out strong in Hershey. Preview will be up tomorrow afternoon.
