Inside The Game
The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins look to extend their winning streak to two games tonight against the Syracuse Crunch.

The Penguins opened the season against the Crunch on home ice, and took the 4-2 victory.

WB/S should pull out a victory tonight with Syracuse’s 0-3 road record.

Mark Letestu returned from injury last night and played a strong game, while tallying 2 assists.

John Curry will get the nod in goal, with yet another strong performance last night, in a 6-3 victory against the B-Sens. He is going for his 60th career win tonight.

The Penguins special teams is really clicking right now which obviously is a good sign so far. They are ranked with the 5th best penalty killing in the AHL, while the Crunch owns the 3rd worst.
