Last Game: Last Saturday at home against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, the Penguins lost 5-3. Scott Wilson had two goals. For Springfield, they beat the Portland Pirates at home 6-2. Corey Potter had two goals and two assists and was named first star of the game.

Last Meeting: January 2 in Wilkes-Barre, the Penguins won 4-1. Carter Rowney had two assists.

 Record: For WBS: 29-13-1-1 (60 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For SPR: 17-22-2-3 (39 pts., 8th place Atlantic Division)

Why you should care: The sliding Penguins are headed to the place where they have had the most success of recent against a team they are 3-0 against this season. Wilkes-Barre is 3-0 in their last three at the MassMutual Center. The Penguins are probably going to be without the services of Dominik Simon, Dominik Uher or Sahir Gill tonight or this weekend. That is significant firepower out of the lineup tonight for the slumping Penguins who have dropped three straight and are backing up towards the rest of the division. A full, sixty minute effort is going to be key tonight.
