Why You Should Care: Penguins look to make it seven straight in Laval. In order to do so, they will need to replicate a lot of things that got them to six wins in a row. Expect Anthony Peters to get the start for the Penguins again and all four lines rolling looking to get the offense going.
Other Game to Watch: Toronto and Charlotte tangle for Game 2 in North Carolina. Last night the Marlies got the better of the Checkers by a 4-1 score.
