Why You Should Care: Wilkes-Barre pretty much needs to win all of its’ remaining games just to keep pace and hope that the Providence Bruins get cold. Now the Bruins aren’t in action today, but the Penguins can close to with three points of the Bruins with a win today. However, Bridgeport is a strong Atlantic Division team and this morning’s game is not going to be easy.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

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

Other Game to Watch: Later, but Lehigh Valley travels to Charlotte for a two game series against the Checkers. The Checkers are gunning for the Atlantic Division crown and the Phantoms are as desperate as the Penguins are at this point.

Next Five Games: vs. BNG 4/5, @ LV 4/6, @ LV 4/7, @ UTI 4/12, vs. BRI 4/13
