In the midst of a three-game losing streak, the Pirates will look to reverse their recent fortunes on their upcoming road trip against the reigning Eastern Conference Champion Utica Comets. Recently falling to the Americans (Oct. 31) and P-Bruins (Oct. 30), the Pirates showed some positive signs over the weekend.
Leading scorer Rob Schremp scored twice against Providence in their Friday night match-up. Schremp now has 7 points (5-2-7) in his first seven games.
Kyle Rau scored his fourth goal of the season against Rochester, while Brent Regner and MacKenzie Weegar recorded their first goals in a Pirates uniform. Despite not getting the outcome they were looking for, the Pirates had their chances in the game as they registered 40 shots against the Americans.
