Why You Should Care: Penguins can get the magic number to 5 with a win today against the Sound Tigers in regulation. The next biggest thing that the Penguins have left is sewing up their spot in the Calder Cup Playoffs. The Sound Tigers will be the more rested team so Wilkes-Barre will need a good start.

Other Game to Watch: Grand Rapids visits Chicago in a matchup between the second and third place teams in the Central division.

Next Five Games: PRO 3/28, @ HFD 3/30, vs. PRO 3/31, vs. HER 4/3, vs. BRI 4/6
