Why You Should Care: Call this a measuring stick game for Wilkes-Barre. Many times, it’s the opposition that is looking to measure up to these Penguins but tonight, it will be the Penguins chasing the bar set by Toronto who have just pillaged the North Division this season. If the Penguins in their current form want to advance far in Calder Cup Playoffs once they qualify, they will soon run into a team like Toronto if they want to advance to a Calder Cup. This should be a good one.

Other Game to Watch: Grand Rapids visits Milwaukee. Nothing else going on in the Eastern Conference for the Penguins.

Next Five Games: @ UTI 3/23, @ BNG 3/24, vs. BRI 3/25, PRO 3/28, @ HFD 3/30
