Why You Should Care: Pens need to be careful here. Hershey comes in losers of eight straight games. Both teams are well rested coming out of the All-Star break. The Pens should put the Bears away early if they want to be successful tonight. Hershey will obviously be looking to keep it close and score a late goal to get back on the winning side of things.
