Why you should care: Wilkes-Barre comes into the new week at home against a Pirates team which has been struggling of late, winning two of their last five contests. The Penguins by their own admission beat themselves this past weekend with losses to Syracuse and Hershey. They will need a full 60 minute effort if they want to beat the Pirates tonight.
