Why you should care: The Pens can lock up a playoff spot tonight with a win and a Hartford loss to Portland tonight. In order for that to happen, Wilkes-Barre has to beat the dastardly Bridgeport Sound Tigers who have given the Penguins fits this season. A win and some help and the Pens are in for the fourteenth consecutive time.
