Why You Should Care: Important Atlantic Division matchup taking place in Wilkes-Barre tonight against a 4th place team in the Penguins and a 5th place team in Bridgeport. Penguins are without some players today because of call-ups to Pittsburgh and Bridgeport is coming off of a strong 5-0 shutout of a terrible Binghamton team, so it should be an interesting game tonight. The key to the Penguins success is going to be what got them wins on Friday and Saturday last week; be good on the penalty kill, get ahead and keep the game tight.

Promotion(s): None

Other Game to Watch: Pens / Sound Tigers is the only game in the division tonight. Milwaukee hosts a Grand Rapids team on the rise tonight. Griffins are a win away from getting back to .500.

Next Five Games: SPR 1/5, BEL 1/6, @ BEL 1/12, @ LAV 1/13, LV 1/17
