Away Game: 38
AHL Game: 1115
Who: Hershey Bears
Where: Giant Center
When: 5:00 p.m.
Last Game: Last night at home against the Providence Bruins, the Pens lost 3-1. Carter Rowney scored the only goal for the Pens in the loss. For Hershey, the Bears sewed up the Atlantic Division championship with a win against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms by a score of 4-2. Ex-Penguin Zach Sill had a goal and an assist in the win for the Bears.
Last Meeting: Last Sunday in Wilkes-Barre, the Pens lost 5-3. Will O’Neill assisted in all three goals.
Record: For WBS: 43-27-4-1 (91 pts., 3rd place Atlantic Division) — For HER: 42-21-5-7 (96 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division)
Why you should care: The Penguins still have home ice to play for against the Providence Bruins. A Penguins win coupled with a P-Bruins regulation loss sews it up. The question is whether the Hershey Bears will make it easy or not. The Bears have nothing to play for and will probably give everyday names the night off. Expect Sean Maguire to make his pro debut for the Pens this afternoon.
