|Inside The Game|
|The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins take on the struggling Syracuse
Crunch on the road, tonight at 7:30 eastern time.
Hopefully the recent success against this team will help the Penguins confidence, and help them start improving on their horrific road record.
Special teams wise, the Penguins have been killing a lot of penalties lately and thus their overall PK% is rising.
In the last contest between these two teams, the Penguins won by a final score of 6-0. Nick Johnson scored two goals and 1 assist in his first period back from injury.
There were also six fights, including known scrappers Deryk Engelland, Robert Bortuzzo, and even some non-fighters in Konstantin Pushkarev, Mark Letestu, and Wyatt Smith.
John Curry will be in net for the WB/S Pens.
