Why You Should Care: Penguins look to keep the momentum rolling with another strong outing against Rockford. More of the same will be needed against a Rockford team which is looking to get back into the mix in the Central Division playoff race.

Other Game to Watch: Rochester and Toronto has been a North Division matchup which has been fun to watch. They meet again  this afternoon in Toronto.
