Why You Should Care: Top two teams in the Atlantic meet tonight in Allentown. Expect a change in goal for Wilkes-Barre as Tristan Jarry was announced as the starter for the Penguins Thursday. How does the team play in front of him? Will it matter? Should be a fun one tonight.

Other Game to Watch: Rochester and Toronto are the top teams in the North Division, and these two sides meet in Toronto.
