Why You Should Care: Penguins face a big test with the Charlotte Checkers coming in. The Checkers are the AHL’s best team and are looking to separate themselves finally from the rest of the Atlantic Division. The Penguins, on the other hand, sit just five points out of first place and want to tighten that gap up considerably this weekend.
Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.
