|Only one player more deserving of November's Highland Park Hockey Player of the Month Award than Philip Samuelsson. But who could it be?|
November Record: 13 games played, 6-4-0-3
The month of November started off just as the end of October finished off - four straight wins. The Penguins were winners of eight straight, with the last three wins all coming on the road. But things took a sudden turn for the worse.
Going into a Saturday night tilt with the Norfolk Admirals the spirits were high. The team was 9-2-1-1 and way ahead in the East Division. They lost to the Admirals and were sent in a downward spiral the rest of the month.
Since the eight game win streak, the Penguins finished the month of November 2-4-0-3 and have found themselves now in a first place tie with the Admirals, who beat the Penguins twice in that nine game stretch to begin and hopefully end the so called slump.
After the jump, Highland Park Hockey's player of the month award and grades for every forward on the AHL's Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins. Part two will be posted later tonight with the goaltenders and defensemen.
Think I went too hard (or too soft!) on anyone? Let me know in the comments!
