Why you should care: The Penguins want to keep it rolling tonight against the Pirates, who have proven that they can score goals (having beaten St. John’s last Friday 8-1) and looking to stay above the cut line in the Eastern Conference. Another thing to look for is who starts in goal tonight. Does Hynes go back to Zatkoff and start Murray Saturday against the Phantoms?
