Garrett Wilson’s bottom of the fourth round shootout goal was the decider as the Penguins skated home with the extra point to complete a three game weekend sweep. For Toronto, the Marlies were up in Newfoundland against the St. John’s IceCaps and won 3-2. Ex-Penguin Kasperi Kapanen scored two goals in the win.

Why you should care: Tonight is a battle of the two best teams in the American Hockey League. The Penguins and Marlies matchup is deep, and this should be a hell of a game as well as a stiff test for both teams.
