Why You Should Care: Penguins and Wolf Pack are rested, having not played Saturday and are probably itching to get back out on the ice. For the Pens, it’s to show that they are better than being shutout by Providence on Friday and for Hartford it’s to battle out of the Atlantic Division basement and start making a run and playing like they team they are capable of. What’s it going to be this afternoon?

Other Game to Watch: Providence hosts Springfield at 3 Sunday afternoon.

Next Five Games: @ HER 1/24, @ LV 1/26, BNG 1/27, HER 2/2, LV 2/3
