Last Game: Last night in Utica, the Pens lost 2-1. Tom Kostopoulos had the only goal for Wilkes-Barre in the loss, which was the Penguins fourth in a row. For Lehigh Valley, the Phantoms were in Springfield last night and lost 5-3. Radel Fazleev had a goal and an assist good for third star honors.

Last Meeting: February 14 in Wilkes-Barre, the Pens beat the Phantoms 5-1. Oskar Sundqvist scored twice for the Penguins and Tristan Jarry stopped 27 of 28 shots to pick up the win.

Record: For WBS: 37-15-3-0 (77 pts., 1st place Atlantic Division) — For LV: 34-17-2-0 (70 pts., 2nd place Atlantic Division)

Why you should care: The Penguins need a win of any kind to get off of this skid that they are on. Look for the Penguins if they are to win tonight in Allentown, to do so in a dirty way. Shootout win or something crazy with a late goal is what I would classify as a dirty win.
