Albany Devils: (12-17-0-0, 24 points, 7th place East Division)
December 26, 2010: @ Wilkes Barre Scranton Penguins (Top AHL affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins). The last time the Albany Devils were slated to play the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins the problem wasn’t patchwork defense, but patchwork ice in Atlantic City. Holes in the ice prevented the two clubs from facing off a couple weeks back. Their last contest went to Wilkes-Barre Scranton 5-1 at the Times Union Center. In fact they’ve all gone in favor of the Pens this season. But alas the two will meet again in an afternoon tilt in Scranton. The baby Pens despite some call-ups including star scorer Dustin Jeffery, still boast an AHL leading 23 wins and 46 points. In their first two meetings the Pens have bested the Devils at home and away, each time by three goals.
