Why you should care: The Penguins can’t take the Phantoms lightly as Lehigh Valley is a hot and cold team. The Penguins could potentially get back Bryan Rust and Tom Kuhnhackl from injury while the Phantoms are missing key personnel but the Penguins are going to need a full 60 minute effort in order to make it a dozen wins in a row on home ice.
