Why you should care: Second trap game in a week for Wilkes-Barre that should thoroughly thrash this listless Rochester Americans team which was swept out of Pennsylvania last time they were here last weekend. Expect Rochester to get up for this game and if the Penguins aren’t ready, they may end up getting upset.
