Why you should care: Battle of Atlantic Division powers as the Penguins square off against the Bears in the first of a home and home this weekend with first place in the Atlantic Division on the line. A win by the Bears extends the lead on Wilkes-Barre for the Division lead while a Penguin win in regulation against the Bears puts Wilkes-Barre in first.
