Why you should care: Much like December 18 back in Wilkes-Barre, tonight is a battle of the two best teams in the American Hockey League. Should be a ice measuring stick for the Penguins facing off against the consistently best team in the AHL all season and equally as so facing off against with Matt Murray or Tristan Jarry in net.
