Why You Should Care: Penguins can clinch a playoff spot tonight with a win of any kind and a loss of any kind by Bridgeport. They also could go up five games on Providence with what will be seven games to play once things are settled tonight. It’s a big game, on may fronts for the Penguins.
Promotion(s): Girl Scout Day
Other Game to Watch: Only one that matters for the Penguins. Bridgeport visits Hartford. If the Sound Tigers win, the Pens cannot clinch no matter what they do.
