Last Game: Tuesday at home against Hartford, the Penguins won 3-2. The win snapped a brief two game losing streak the Penguins had brought with them into that game. For Hershey, the Bears last played on New Years Eve at home against the Providence Bruins and lost 4-1. Zach Sanford scored the lone Bears goal.

Last Meeting: Oskar Sundqvist’s four goals propelled the Penguins to a 6-2 win on home ice on December 10.

Record: For WBS: 22-7-3-0 (47 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For HER: 18-7-5-2 (43 pts., 4th place Atlantic Division)

Why you should care: First of two this weekend between these two sides. Hershey is the more rested team with about a week in between games and the Penguins come in after nearly blowing a 3-0 lead to a last place Hartford team. Both teams being extremely well coached are going to want to get the jump on the other.
