Home Game: 23
AHL Game: 686
Who: Bridgeport Sound Tigers
Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza
When: 7:05 p.m.
Last Game: Last night in Bridgeport, the Pens won 4-3 in overtime. Carter Rowney capped off his three point night with the game winning power play goal. For Bridgeport, the Sound Tigers hosted the Lehigh Valley Phantoms last night and won 6-3. Bracken Kearns had a hat trick.
Last Meeting: October 18 in Bridgeport, the Pens won 5-1. Tristan Jarry stopped 35 of 36 shots to pick up his first professional win as a goaltender.
Record: For WBS: 30-13-1-1 (62 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For BRI: 24-19-2-1 (51 pts., 5th place Atlantic Division)
Why you should care: Expect Tristan Jarry tonight as the Pens are coming off of a road win and a night where Matt Murray saw 45 shots. The Sound Tigers are coming in on a five game winning streak and the Pens are just getting off of a four game losing streak. If the Penguins are going to win tonight, they will need another strong performance in goal and offensive help from a Carter ROwney or maybe an Anton Zlobin type player.

Other Game to Watch: Every team in the AHL in in action tonight for the first time this season. The game on my radar though is Lehigh Valley at Hershey. The Phantoms have won five of their last six and the Bears are on a ten game point streak.
