Record: For WBS: 29-10-0-1 (59 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For PRO: 18-15-8-1 (45 pts., 4th place Atlantic Division)

Why you should care: Penguins look for a winning weekend when they take on the Providence Bruins who are bolstered by Frank Vatrano who has lit the AHL on fire and a Bruins team who will be scathing mad after getting beat in overtime by a last place Springfield team. The Penguins can expect the best from Providence and the Bruins will be expecting the best from Wilkes-Barre.
