Why You Should Care: Penguins desperately need to start piling up points. They had a great effort in Rockford Wednesday but just ran into a hot goaltender. They need to bring the same with them in Wisconsin this evening. Milwaukee is in a similar boat, so it sets up as a good matchup tonight in A Great Place on a Great Lake.
Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.
Watch: AHLTV is new and improved and a lot cheaper.
Other Game to Watch: San Jose travels to Bakersfield to face a Condors team who has won ten straight and who are gunning for the top spot in the Pacific, a spot that the Barracuda have had a stranglehold on all season.
