Last Game / Last Meeting: Last night in Wilkes-Barre, the Pens beat the Binghamton Senators 5-0. Matt Murray had a 30 save shutout. For Hershey, they last played the Penguins in New Years Eve against the Pens in Wilkes-Barre and lost 2-0. Jeff Zatkoff had a 24 save shutout.

Record: For WBS: 20-12-1-2 (43 pts., 1st place East Division) — For HER: 16-12-4-1 (37 pts., 2nd place East Division)

Why you should care: Penguins can really put distance on the Bears tonight with a win. A regulation win would make it an eight point lead on the Bears and the rest of the division. But, it’s always easier said than done when it’s Hershey.
