Why You Should Care: Penguins look to continue the good, physical play against very tough team, from the Central Division in the Grand Rapids Griffins. The Griffins are coming in on a five game point streak as they continue to ascend through the very competitive Central Division. Wilkes-Barre will be looking to minimize mistakes tonight and look for a win against the Griffins.
