Linesmen: Ryan Knapp / Luke Murray

Why You Should Care: Hershey comes in this afternoon winners of 5 of their last 6 games with that setback coming in overtime against Rockford last night. Bears are a lot better than they have been the last time you saw them and the Penguins are shucking along letting the division get away from them. About that, this will be the first of five games in hand that the Pens have on teh Phantoms that will get burned off today. Games in hand only matter if you win them.
