Why you should care: The last time these two teams met, it wasn’t close. The Whale are a big, bad team. This game could get out of hand quickly if the Pens don’t look out. The Whale are locked in a deep sea battle with the Worcester Sharks for the last guaranteed playoff spot. They are in town as of last night. Should be a great game tonight.
