Lats Game: Last night at home, the Penguins beat the Norfolk Admirals 5-5. Jayson Megna had a hat trick, the first Penguins hat trick at home since Eric Tangradi in 2012. For Lehigh Valley, the Phantoms were in Hershey last night ad lost 5-1. Brett Hextall scored the only goal for the Phantoms in the loss.

Last Meeting: April 8 in Allentown, the Pens won 3-0. Matt Murray had a 30 save shutout.

Record: For WBS: 44-24-3-4 (95 pts., 2nd place East Division) — For LV: 33-34-7-1 (74 pts., 4th place East Division)

Why you should care: If Matt Murray starts, he has a chance to tie the record for AHL shutouts in a season. If not, it’s a carefree day because the Penguins really don’t have anything to play for with the 4 seed locked up and a date with the Syracuse Crunch already set.
