Pre-game @ Wilkes-Barre / Scranton 2/2

WILKES-BARRE, PA -- Hello from press row here in Wilkes-Barre! Jason Iacona here for MC as he was nice enough to bring me back in to pinch hit for him on press row this evening as the Adirondack Phantoms (18-21-2-1) square off against the host Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins (22-18-2-1) at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza. It will be reigning AHL goaltender of the month Brad Thiessen vs. Scott Munroe.

Should be an interesting matchup tonight on special teams. The Phantoms have scored power play goals in each of their last seven games and the Penguins' penalty killing unit is in the top three in the AHL, killing at 87.1% coming into tonight's game.

Newcomer Jon Sim took warmups, and is expected to play again tonight. I saw him on a line with Eric Wellwood and Andrew Johnston. They took the first of the line rushes, if that means anything.

Here's a look at the rest of the lines for both clubs:
