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.
