Last Game: Tuesday in Albany, the Penguins were shutout 4-0. Jeff Zatkoff left the game with injury. For Springfield, the Falcons were in Bridgeport Sunday and lost 4-3 in overtime. Ex-Penguin Ryan Craig had a goal in the Falcons loss.

Record: For WBS: 2-3-0-0 (4 pts., 5th place East Division) — For SPR: 1-2-1-0 (3 pts., 5th place Northeast Division)

Why you should care: Two teams set to battle out of the basement in their respective divisions. The Penguins still look for their first power play goal of the season. It’s also the homecoming of ex-Penguin Brian Gibbons. Should be an interesting matchup of two teams who are better than their records show.
