Pens Hope Road Success Continues

Tuesday, January 10, 2012
Patrick Killeen continues to back up Brad Thiessen but Scott Munroe did make the trip.
The Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins are in Virginia tonight with a battle against the Norfolk Admirals on tap for 7:15 p.m. EST. The Admirals have had the Penguins number so far this season, but the Penguins have been far better on the road this season than at home. With a 13-3-2 record away from home, the Pens will look for road win #14 against a tough Admirals lineup.

The Penguins lost another forward to Pittsburgh after Jordan Staal (knee) and James Neal (foot) left the lineup with injuries. Craig Adams also reaggravated a knee injury as well, but luckily Arron Asham and Steve MacIntyre are ready to play and only Eric Tangradi was recalled.

The WBS Penguins made a few roster moves of their own too. They called up forward Cody Chupp, who began the season with the AHL Penguins. They also sent forward Brian Day to Wheeling, probably for conditioning purposes. Day was injured in the preseason and has missed the entire season up to this date.

Brad Thiessen vs. Dustin Tokarski in net. Nick Petersen a surprise healthy scratch. Cody Chupp, Ryan Schnell and Peter Merth in. Live updates on Twitter. Recap on the blog shortly after the game.
