Why you should care: Penguins have a bit of a cushion on Lehigh Valley for first in the division. They can really pad that and cut down their magic number to clinch a playoff spot with a win tonight at home. The home team in this regular season series hasn’t done too well, so it’s a quirky trend that Wilkes-Barre will have to buck if they want the two points tonight.
