Why You Should Care: Penguins head to Charlotte to take on the best team in the AHL this weekend for a two game set. Very important series for a Penguins team who has been playing better as of late and probably better than the last time they played the Checkers. Limit mistakes and see what happens against a Charlotte team that doesn’t quit.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

Watch: AHLTV is new and improved and a lot cheaper. Tonight’s game is also available on Facebook Watch.

Other Game to Watch: Chicago heads to Tucson for a weekend series against the Roadrunners. Last time these teams met it was a good series.
