Why you should care: The Marlies are one of the elite teams in the Western Conference. The Penguins skate in looking to all of a sudden get back into the win column after winning five straight before last night’s setback to Rochester. They will need a full 60 minute effort in order to win tonight.

Other Game to Watch: Hershey travels to Binghamton to take on the Eastern Conference leading Binghamton Senators. B-Sens on a bit of a roll, Bears floundering. Should be an interesting matchup.
