Why you should care: Penguins seem like they have some kind of nasty funk around them, having lost two games now to teams in Hartford and Syracuse that they should have won if they put the same effort together against Hershey. Binghamton isn’t going to make playoffs this year and the Penguins are in the thick of it with Hershey for the divisional race, so the B-Sens could be the cure that ail Wilkes-Barre.
