Why you should care: Trap game for the Penguins. They eked out a win in Hershey Sunday against the Bears in Hershey that snapped an eight game losing streak and put the Pens atop the East Division again. They handled the Sound Tigers top ranked power play and scored two goals on the man advantage themselves. If the Penguins think they can sleepwalk through this game in Allentown tonight against the Phantoms, they will be in for a surprise.
