Why You Should Care: Pens start a two game weekend up in Connecticut against the Hartford Wolf Pack. Like Wednesday, the Pens will need to take the Wolf Pack seriously, despite their record and place in the division if they want to have success in Hartford tonight.

Other Game to Watch: Grand Rapids hosts Chicago in a battle of two North Division teams that should be contending but are not right now due to dangerously slow starts.

Next Five Games: @ BRI 12/16, BNG 12/22, LV 12/23, LV 12/27, HFD 12/29
