Why you should care: Penguins lineup should look retooled and revamped with the additions of Conor Sheary back from Pittsburgh and Oskar Sundqvist coming off of injury. The Penguins will be the fresher group on the ice with Bridgeport having battled the night before in Syracuse. Look for a quick start from the Penguins out of the gate.
