Other Game to Watch: I am giving you two. Springfield vs. Portland and Albany at Binghamton. If the Penguins are to clinch their thirteenth straight trip to the Calder Cup Playoffs, they need to win tonight first, then have Springfield and Albany lose in regulation tonight and they are in.
Next Five Games: @ LV 4/8, @ POR 4/11, @ POR 4/12, ALB 4/17, NOR 4/18
