Where: Mile One Centre
When: 4:00 p.m. Newfoundland time, 2:30 p.m. Wilkes-Barre time.

Record: For WBS: 14-4-2-0 (30 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For STJ: 11-11-1-0 (23 pts., 4th place North Division)
Why you should care: Rematch on The Rock for these two teams. You should see some shuffling at forward and on defense for the Penguins and expect Casey DeSmith to get the nod today for Wilkes-Barre. The IceCaps started strong in the first period then faded after the Pens struck on the power play late. St. John’s is hard to beat twice at home.
