Why You Should Care: The Penguins had a week to stew on the egg that they laid at their home opener last Saturday. The Phantoms blew out Hershey in theirs then went to play a tougher Hartford team then they thought and lost in a shootout. So it’s two teams that either didn’t like the way they played or aren’t sure of their style of play. Should be an interesting game and miniseries between these two heated rivals this weekend.
