Inside The Game

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Baby Penguins look to clinch a playoff spot with a win over Albany tonight.

The Pens have handled Albany easily this year, especially in a meeting last month between the two, where Chris Conner recorded a hat trick, and three assists for a 6-point night. That set a new franchise record.

The Rats, however, have nothing to play for, as they have clinched a playoff berth of their own a few nights ago.

Joe Haddad, Alex Grant, and Casey Pierro-Zabotel will likely be penciled in as the healthy scratches.

Jon D’Aversa, Lane Caffaro, Ryan Schnell, Blair Yaworski, and Adam Berkhoel are up from Wheeling as well.
