Why you should care: The Penguins need to come out with the same fire they did Sunday in Hershey and match that same intensity against a Lehigh Valley team that is looking to play spoiler here with a month to play in the regular season. Will they? Remains to be seen. Expect Tristan Jarry in net for the Pens.
