Last Game: Saturday at home vs. Lehigh Valley, the Penguins were up 2-0, only to see the Phantoms score six unanswered and lose 6-2. Bryan Rust and Andrew Ebbett both had two assists in the losing effort. For Springfield, the Falcons were in Hartford Saturday and lost 3-1. Marko Dano had the lone goal for Springfield in the loss.

Last Meeting: Friday in Springfield, the Falcons were shutout by the Penguins 5-0. Matt Murray had his fourth shutout of the season with 28 saves.

Record: For WBS: 24-18-1-3 (52 pts., 2nd place East Division) — For SPR: 26-15-4-0 (56 pts., 3rd place Northeast Division)

Why you should care: Penguins still souring over the blowout loss against the Phantoms on home ice in front of a sellout crowd Saturday and the Falcons are stumbling and still haven’t scored a goal against the Penguins this season in two prior meetings. Two teams not in desperation mode but the winner will feel better heading into the weekend than the loser, obviously.

    Does anyone know if Romasko has become more moderate?
