For Binghamton, the Devils hosted Utica Sunday and pounded the Comets 7-2. Nick Lappin had a hat trick and an assist, Kevin Rooney had three assists. Goaltender Eddie Lack turned away 24 of 26 Utica shots.

Why You Should Care: Penguins need to be careful tonight in Binghamton. This Devils team has been punching above its weight class for a few weeks here and could spoil the start of the weekend for Wilkes-Barre. Devils come in 6-4 in their last ten and crushed a Utica team that recently had points in sixteen straight contests.

Other Game to Watch: Providence visits Rochester is the other game to keep an eye on.

Next Five Games: vs. GR 3/10, @ CHA 3/13, @ CHA 3/14, vs. HFD 3/17, vs. HER 3/18
