Why you should care: When the Penguins were coming off a bad loss to Toronto the night before, the cure for what ailed the Penguins was in the form of the Syracuse Crunch. It’s the Crunch again tonight. Is that enough to get the Pens back on track? Hardly. Wilkes-Barre will need to play a full 60 minutes and get contributions from everyone in every situation if they want to be successful tonight.
