Last Game: Saturday in Wilkes-Barre, the Pens staved off elimination by winning 4-2. Zach Sill’s late third period goal with 15.8 left propelled the Penguins to victory. Chuck Kobasew and Andrew Ebbett returned from injury and had an immediate impact, with Kobasew potting two goals and Ebbett notching two assists.

What to Watch For: Special teams. Coming back to this again. St. John’s has scored goals while on a two-man advantage for three straight games. The Penguins need to be more disciplined. Also, Wilkes-Barre’s power play is 0-for-27, they have to get going now if they have any chance of winning this game and ultimately the series.
