Why You Should Care: First game of the season always brings optimism. Standing in the way is a vastly improved in offseason Springfield Thunderbirds team that could contend this season. Take nothing from the 3-0 preseason that the Penguins played last weekend. The real season starts tonight against a very dangerous Springfield Thunderbirds team.
