Why you should care: Penguins are in the Capital District of New York for a meeting against the Albany Devils. The Devils played the Pens tough last time. The Pens are coming off of a sort of a disappointing weekend. A date with division leaders Binghamton and Syracuse loom this weekend. The Pens cannot underestimate the Devils tonight.

Other Game to Watch: The aforementioned B-Sens and Crunch square off in Syracuse. These teams don’t like each other. This should be a fun contest to pay attention to.
