Last Game: Saturday at home against Wilkes-Barre, the Penguins were defeated by the Bridgeport Sound Tigers 3-2. Carter Rowney scored both goals. For Utica, the Comets won in overtime in just five seconds off of the stick of Brandon Gaunce and beat the St. John’s IceCaps.

Last Meeting: January 9 in Wilkes-Barre, the Pens won 4-2. Scott Wilson had two goals and an assist.

Record: For WBS: 30-14-1-1 (62 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For UTI: 22-17-3-3 (50 pts., 3rd place North Division)

Why you should care: Scott Wilson isn’t walking through that door tonight, neither is Conor Sheary. Dominik Simon is hurt. Those are your top three Penguins scorers out of the lineup for one reason or another tonight so the Penguins, as they have had to these last few games, will need to find scoring from a role player if they want to beat the Comets tonight, who have won four in a row.

Other Game to Watch: I like Albany vs. Providence tonight. The P-Bruins have the AHL’s longest point streak and the Devils are a sneaky good team.
