Why you should care: Wilkes-Barre still has something to play for in the form of a regular season championship. A win and help later on by the Bakersfield Condors who play the San Jose Barracuda, the team that the Penguins are neck and neck with in pursuit of the Kilpatrick Trophy, and the best overall record in the league is the Penguins.
