Why You Should Care: Very important game tonight for both teams who see the other as a chance to get into the playoff picture here late on in March due to the fact that the teams face off against each other again Saturday and after this twice more. Who wants it more becomes the question? Expect Tristan Jarry in goal tonight, making his twelves straight start.
Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.
