Last Game: Last night at home against the Rochester Americans, the Penguins won 3-1. The win broke a record for wins by the Penguins in any one season. Dave Warsofsky scored a power play goal and Tristan stopped 15 of 16 shots. For Hartford, they were in Portland Friday and lost 3-2. Mackenzie Skapski picked up third star honors after stopping 25 of 28 shots.

Last Meeting: October 30 in Wilkes-Barre, the Penguins won 4-1. Scott Wilson scored two goals and Matt Murray stopped 29 of 30 shots.

Record: For WBS: 11-1-0-0 (22 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For HFD: 6-8-1-0 (13 pts., 6th place Atlantic Division)

Why you should care: The Wolf Pack have gone cold since that October 30 meeting in Wilkes-Barre, only winning once more the next night in overtime against Providence. Since, they have dropped six straight decisions. The Penguins though are coming in to face a team that didn’t play Saturday, so they need to be on their best if they want to extend the win streak to eleven games.

Other Game to Watch: I am going Albany and Springfield. Next to the Penguins, probably two of the more hotter teams in the Conference.
