Why you should care: Both teams are coming off of big wins tonight. If you looked at the schedule of opponents that the Pens were playing this weekend, you would have circled Springfield as the team that the Penguins had the most likely chance of beating this weekend. But the Falcons beat a really good Devils team last night. The seed is planted in their minds that they can do the same to the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins. Expect the Falcons best tonight.

Other Game to Watch: I am liking Rockford and Lake Erie in the rematch between these two teams. The Monsters beat the IceHogs last night and are closing in on the Central Division leaders.
