Why you should care: These two teams are the exact opposite of Valentines on this day for love. Can Lehigh Valley overcome the throttling the Penguins gave them he last time these two teams met? Have they shaken off the loss that the IceCaps gave them Saturday? Will the Penguins be more disciplined than they were on Saturday against Binghamton?
