Last Meeting: On 10/30 in Hershey, the Penguins dominated the Bears on their home ice and won handily, 6-2. Chris Conner had two goals.

Why you should care: Easy. It’s Hershey and Wilkes-Barre on a Saturday night in the fall. Nothing more needs said about it. If you had to press me, you should care because we have won three straight vs. Hershey. Can we make it four in a row? Can we win again tonight on the Bears’ home ice? If we are successful and beat Hershey again, we can pretty much beat any team in the league. Both teams are coming off sour losses last night, so expect an up-tempo game from the start.
