Last Meeting: Thanksgiving Eve in Hershey, the Pens lost in a shootout, 2-1. Brian Dumoulin had a last minute, extra attacker goal that guaranteed the Penguins at least a point.

Record: For WBS: 13-8-1-1 (28 pts., 1st place East Division) — For HER: 12-8-1-1 (26 pts., 2nd place East Division)

Why you should care: Last night the Penguins impressed with a lineup bereft of the leading scorers and won in impressive fashion with arguably their best game of the year played to date. A duplication of the process is going to be needed this night vs. the rival Bears who are just two points off the East Division lead Wilkes-Barre owns.
