Why You Should Care: Gotta make this game in hand on Providence and Lehigh Valley count. This past Sunday was a let down, losing 4-2. The Penguins have to win this game if they want to be considered a contender for a playoff spot in the Atlantic Division. A tough task against a Hershey team that has had the Pens number lies ahead.
Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.
