Last Game: Last night at home the Penguins lost 4-3 to the Toronto Marlies. The Pens gave up three shorthanded goals in the third period. For Syracuse, the Crunch won at home last night 4-0 against the Binghamton Senators. Andrei Vasilevskiy was named the first star of the game with a 27 save shutout.

Last Meeting: December 9 in Wilkes-Barre, the Pens won 6-2. Dominik Simon had two goals.

Record: For WBS: 20-5-0-1 (41 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For SYR: 11-10-3-1 (26 pts., 5th place North Division)

Why you should care: The Penguins want to quickly wash off that bad shootout loss to Toronto with a strong showing tonight in Syracuse. They are still without the services of Tristan Jarry so it will likely be Brian Foster again tonight for Wilkes-Barre and he will be looking to also get in the win column for the Pens in a game he was likely scheduled to play in anyway with the recall of Matt Murray to Pittsburgh.
