Why you should care: In the regular season, these last three games are meaningless for the Penguins. They have already wrapped up a playoff spot, the division championship and home ice throughout the first three rounds of the playoffs if they get that far. Wilkes-Barre may dress a much more inexperienced lineup to give the regulars a rest. Lehigh Valley still has a lot to play for, having not yet secured a playoff spot. But can they score a goal?
