Last Game: Saturday in Syracuse, the Penguins won 3-0. It was the first AHL shutout for Brian Foster as well as the fourth overall for the Penguins in the last five games. For Hershey, they hosted the Crunch on Sunday and beat them in overtime 5-4. The Bears had to dig out of a 3-0 hole in the first period and got the game winning goal from Sean Collins in overtime. Collins also had a third period goal.

Last Meeting: December 6 in Hershey, the Bears won 4-1. Tim Erixon had the only goal for the Penguins in the loss.

Record: For WBS: 21-5-0-1 (43 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For HER: 15-8-1-5 (36 pts., 2nd place Atlantic Division)

Why you should care: The Clark Donatelli Era begins tonight in Hershey against the Penguins biggest rival, the Hershey Bears. Because of the Christmas holiday, expect the Penguins to keep things simple under Donatelli because he hasn’t been able to run them through a full practice yet.
