Why you should care: Wilkes-Barre finishes up it’s three game road trip with a Sunday afternoon game in Worcester seeking it’s first win in it. The Pens have played the least amount of games in the East Division at current. No other East Division team is playing today. The Pens have lost two straight games in shootouts and want to win to finish out the the weekend to distance themselves from the rest of the division. Worcester should be well rested, having not played last night and will not go away easy. It’s going to take a focused effort to win this afternoon.

Other Game to Watch: WBS is the only East Division team in action today. But keep an eye on Connecticut and Providence. With Springfield idle, a Connecticut win can put them in sole possession of third in the conference.
