Why you should care: The injection of Scott Wilson and Conor Sheary should help the Penguins tonight who come into this matchup against the Phantoms who have lost 4 of the last 5. I’d put a penny on Tristan Jarry starting in goal tonight. Jarry won the only game in this mini-slump the Penguins are on.
