Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza

Last Game / Last Meeting: Last night in Hershey, the Pens won 4-3. Dominik Simon scored two goals and Brian Foster stopped 21 of 24 shots as the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins sewed up their 14th consecutive trip to the Calder Cup Playoffs. Chris Bourque scored his 200th AHL goal for the Bears in the losing effort.
Record: For WBS: 42-25-4-1 (89 pts., 2nd place Atlantic Division) — For HER: 40-20-5-7 (92 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division)
Why you should care: With playoffs already locked up for both teams, it’s all about the division title for these two teams. The Pens can inch closer with a win today while the Bears can make things very difficult for the Pens with a win of their own. Expect an intense game today.
