Why you should care: The Penguins take to the road to start the weekend against non-divisional opponents, which the Penguins have enjoyed great success against. They are neck and neck with Hershey for third in the division. A bad points weekend may completely put the division race out of reach. A great start and a strong finish is a must against the Phantoms, who will be playing on the parent team Flyers home ice.
