Why You Should Care: Penguins need this one today. They looked awful Wednesday against Charlotte and then  abad first period cost them last night against Hartford. You shoulder have to get up to play a game against your bitter rival in the Bears, so it should be interesting to see how the Penguins come out this afternoon against the Bears.

Promotion(s): None
