Tonight the series shifts to the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre. Game Three. Series tied. The Penguins have the home ice advantage the next three games and look to capitalize. Puck drops at 7:05 p.m. EST. I will be live at the game with full coverage on Twitter and a recap here shortly after the conclusion. Follow @H_P_Hockey for in-game updates and all the WBS Penguins news in one spot!
As for the lineups, don't expect many changes, if any. Brian Strait didn't practice and is most likely out for tonight. He's listed as the standard during the playoffs: day-to-day.
The games become increasingly more important this time of year but I'm not sure if there's a bigger game in this series than tonight's Game Three. With the series tied at one, the Penguins can potentially win out their three home games and end the series in Wilkes-Barre. If St. John's takes one game on the road, they know the series has to end in front of their hometown fans as Games Six and Seven (if necessary) are at the Mile One Centre in Newfoundland.
After the jump some awesome pictures from Game Two. Thanks again to @dwancherry for those!
|Tempers flared in the waning moments. Bortuzzo and King dropped the gloves.|
|Thiessen gets ready for some IceCaps offensive pressure.|
|Apparently Sill wasn't happy with someone and let him know he was taking down his jersey number for later.|
|Thiessen made some saves in key mooments that helped lead his team to the 3-1 win.|
|Pasquale was awfully busy in the first two periods. One of his well deserved breathers.|
