Last Meeting: March 25 in Wilkes-Barre, the Penguins lost 6-3 in a game marred by a ton of penalties. The Sound Tigers scored three power play goals in eleven opportunities. Ryan Haggerty and Garrett Wilson both had a pair of assists as the lone bright spots for the Penguins.

Why You Should Care: All the Penguins need to do tonight is get to overtime and they are locked into the playoffs. The Sound Tigers are still mathematically alive and will still be fighting to get into the playoff picture, however dim their playoff chances are at this time. Staying disciplined and capitalizing on mistakes is going to be key for the Penguins if they want to wrap up the playoff spot tonight.
