Last Game: Wednesday at home vs. Syracuse, the Penguins won 4-0. Eric Hartzell had a 20 save shutout. Denver Manderson scored his first AHL goal. For Norfolk, they were supposed to play the Charlotte Checkers at home Tuesday but were postponed due to weather, so the Admirals last game was last Saturday at home vs. the Penguins, a 2-1 shootout loss.

Last Meeting: January 25 in Norfolk, the Pens won 2-1. Tom Kuhnhackl scored in the top of the eighth round of the shootout to win it for the Penguins.

Record: For WBS: 26-14-1-3 (56 pts., 2nd place East Division) — For NOR: 22-13-1-7 (52 pts., 3rd place East Division)

Why you should care: Norfolk pretty much owns the Mohegan Sun Arena, having tremendous success in the home of the Penguins. The Pens will need to defend home ice and play a solid 60 minute game against the rival Admirals in order to take the two points home with them tonight.
