Penguins Look for Ten Straight

Saturday, January 28, 2012
The Penguins have won an AHL's best nine straight road wins and are looking to make it ten in a row tonight when they battle the Binghamton Senators at 7:05 p.m. EST. This is the last game for the Penguins before the AHL All Star Break.

Expect Scott Munroe to be between the pipes tonight as Brad Thiessen picked up the 3-2 overtime win last night against the Connecticut Whale.

Healthy scratches from last night, Philip Samuelsson and Brian Gibbons, could slot into the lineup if someone is banged up from last night's game. I wouldn't be surprised if Steve MacIntyre or Brandon DeFazio was the healthy scratch at forward. Carl Sneep could be the odd man out on the blue line. He did miss the last 11 games prior to last night so letting him ease back in wouldn't be a bad idea.

Binghamton (40 pts) won their game last night 3-2 over the Albany Devils, and are looking to get out of the East Division basement. The Penguins (58 pts) are in first place with a three point lead on the Hershey Bears and Norfolk Admirals (55 pts). The Bears and Admirals face off again tonight in Norfolk at The Scope. The Admirals were able to pull off a 2-1 win in regulation.
