Why you should care: It seems ridiculously fun when these teams play hockey together and I expect this evening’s game to be no different. Whoever scores first here tonight I think is going to have the easier game. Expect Tristan Jarry for the Penguins and probably Stephon Williams for Bridgeport in goal. Josh Archibald was hurt last night for the Pens so who slots in for his absence?
