This week, the Wilkes Barre Scranton Penguins are preparing to face a familiar foe in the first round of the playoffs. The Hershey Bears are coming to town this Friday for the start of a best-of-five series. These two teams faced off 11 times in the regular season and have met five times in previous post seasons.
The Penguins know that this matchup will be a physical one. The Bears are one of the top teams in the league when it comes to capitalizing on the power play, and despite the Penguins desire to rough them up a bit, they know they must stay out of the penalty box, to make this game a fair fight.
The game is set for this Friday night at 7:05 at Mohegan Sun Arena.
