vs.     

Who: Milwaukee Admirals

Last Game: Last night against Grand Rapids, the Penguins won 3-2 in a shootout. Ryan Haggerty had two goals in regulation and Joseph Cramarossa scored the only goal in the shootout in the bottom of the third. For Milwaukee, the Admirals were last in action on Wednesday in Rockford and won 2-1. Troy Grosenick stopped 34 shots.

Record: For WBS: 18-14-4-1 (41 pts., 4th place Atlantic Division) // For MIL: 17-12-5-1 (40 pts., 5th place Central Division)

Why You Should Care: Penguins can’t rest on their laurels from their last game against a rested Milwaukee Admirals team that did not play Friday. If Wilkes-Barre brings the same stuff that got them through Grand Rapids last night, they should be OK tonight against Milwaukee. But it’s easier said than done.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

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

Promotion(s): Penguins Trading Card Strip # 2 – The first 4,000 fans will receive a Penguins card strip, featuring five different players.

Other Game to Watch: San Antonio takes on Chicago in game two of their weekend meeting in Rosemont. Last night the Rampages shutout the Wolves 3-0 so it’s Chicago looking to pay it back against San Antonio later on tonight.

Next Five Games: @ CHA 1/11, @ CHA 1/12, vs. RCH 1/18, vs. HER 1/19, vs. LV 1/21
