Why you should care: Pens try to salvage the weekend with a strong showing this evening in Hershey. The Bears games this weekend haven’t come easy for them either, but they have a shootout loss (Friday to Hartford) and a win yesterday to the Phantoms to show for it. The Penguins are in on a two game losing streak.
