Why You Should Care: Wilkes-Barre can sweep the weekend with the same effort they have brought with them the last two games they have played. Expect John Muse in net and the Penguins to come with some pep looking to jump on the Bears early. Bears won’t be looking to make it easy, though.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

Watch: AHLTV is new and improved and a lot cheaper.

Other Game to Watch: Light Sunday. Bakersfield heads into San Jose for a good test against the Pacific Division’s best.
