Last Game: Last night in against Toronto, the Pens were shutout and lost 3-0. Second regulation loss for the Penguins and in that, second time they were shutout. For Providence, the P-Bruins were in Binghamton and won 4-2. Malcom Subban stopped 38 of 40 shots and picked up his first win since a throat injury which sidelined most of his season last year.

Last Meeting: This past Sunday in Providence, the P-Bruins were the first team in eight games to score more than one regulation goal on the Penguins but it was Wilkes-Barre that would emerge the victor in a shootout. Garrett Wilson’s bottom of the fourth round shootout goal was the one that secured the weekend sweep for Wilkes-Barre..

Record: For WBS: 8-2-1-0 (17 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For PRO: 4-5-2-1 (11 pts., 6th place Atlantic Division)

Why you should care: Penguins and Bruins rematch Saturday night in Wilkes-Barre after their stellar, back and forth affair this past Sunday. If that game was any indicator how this series between these two clubs is going to be this year, tonight should be another great game.
