Why you should care: Penguins face an important weekend that begins with a short two game set in New Hampshire against the Monarchs, who have been the class of the Eastern Conference all season long. This will be a good litmus test for the Penguins to see how they stack up against some of the AHL’s elite.

Other Game to Watch: I like Albany and St. John’s in Newfoundland. These are two teams that want back in to the playoff discussion and will try to use each other to take advantage.
