Last Game: Wednesday at home against the Syracuse Crunch, the Penguins won 3-2 in overtime on David Warsofsky’s shot with 1.2 left in overtime. For Utica, the Comets lost in overtime to the Springfield Thunderbirds 2-1. Pascal Pelletier scored for Utica and Richard Bachman stopped 22 of 24 shots.

Record: For WBS: 31-9-3-0 (65 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For UTI: 18-16-6-1 (43 pts., 4th place North Division)

Why you should care: Utica is 8-1-1-0 in their last ten games and have for all intents and purposes turned things around and gotten back into the playoff discussion in the North Division. This is not a team that the Penguins want to take lightly in an environment which sells out every night.
