Why you should care: The Penguins can get to five points of the Crunch with a regulation win this afternoon. It’s not going to be easy, because the Crunch are a good team and were off last night while the Penguins were in Binghamton last night. Good goaltending, as they’ve had all year, and success on the power play, that they had last night should do the trick.
