Dea scored the only goal for the Penguins in the win. For St. John’s, the IceCaps hosted the Syracuse Crunch on Wednesday and won 3-2 in a shootout.

Record: For WBS: 13-4-2-0 (28 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For STJ: 11-10-1-0 (23 pts., 4th place North Division)
Why you should care: Should be a good weekend tilt. IceCaps have been floundering around as a would be contender in the North Division. This is going to be a great test for them as well as the Penguins who should be well rested after not playing for an entire week.
