Last Game: Last night vs. Providence at home, the Penguins won 2-0. Matt Murray had a 22 save shutout, his seventh of the season. For Hartford, the Wolf Pack were in Allentown last night and beat the Lehigh Valley Phantoms 5-4 in overtime. Oscar Lindberg scored the game winning goal and also had and assist.

Record: For WBS: 29-18-2-4 (64 pts., 2nd place East Division) — For HFD: 30-16-4-3 (67 pts., 2nd place Northeast Division)

Why you should care: The Penguins embark on a six game road trip that begins Sunday in Hartford. The Wolf Pack are a sneaky good team and the last team the Penguins haven’t faced yet in the Eastern Conference. Hartford is coming off of two overtime wins (they also won 3-2 in overtime Friday in Springfield) so will the Wolf Pack have anything left in the tank today or will they gut out a win against the Penguins?
