Why you should care: Saturday night game at home in front of a sold out crowd and a game on TV. Big home game for the Penguins who want to start the weekend off on the right foot after a full week off and week of practice. Providence comes in battling for a playoff spot and I shouldn’t have to remind you about the recent playoff history between these teams.

Other Game to Watch: The Penguins haven’t played the Hartford Wolf Pack yet, but they do tomorrow. The Wolf Pack are in Allentown tonight taking on the Phantoms. Hartford is a sneaky good team.
