Why you should care: Bears will want to bite back against the Penguins in what is a TV game for Wilkes-Barre in what is expected to be a sellout crowd. Pens are coming off a tough loss last night to the Phantoms who have three games in hand. So you know that the Penguins are going to come out loaded for bear. Pardon the obvious pun.
