Last Game: Last night in Portland, the Penguins won 3-2 in a shootout. Kael Mouillierat had a goal, an assist and the game winning shootout goal for the Pens in the win. For Springfield, the Falcons won at home against Albany in overtime 4-3. The Falcons came back from a 3-1 deficit and Eric Selleck scored the overtime game winning goal.

Last Meeting: February 5 in Springfield, the Pens won 4-3 in overtime. Carter Rowney scored the overtime game winning goal, but wasn’t named a star of the game somehow.

 Record: For WBS: 33-16-4-1 (71 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For SPR: 20-26-3-4 (47 pts., 8th place Atlantic Division)

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.
