Why You Should Care: Penguins are in a bit of uncharted territory here. They play a 10:30 a.m. weekday game against Springfield, capping off a five game road trip. How do they come out this morning? How do they start? What lineup changes are made? Springfield will be in the same boat, losing their last three straight games. Should be an interesting game to pay attention to this morning.`
Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.
Watch: AHLTV is new and improved and a lot cheaper.
Other Game to Watch: Believe it or not but the Penguins and Thunderbirds aren’t the only AHL teams playing morning games today. Bridgeport travels north to Hartford today to take on the Wolf Pack. The Sound Tigers are hot and are second in the Atlantic.
