Why You Should Care: Pair of sixth place teams in their respective divisions looking to close out the season on a winning note with a victory against the other tonight in Utica. For the Pens, look for John Muse to get the start in goal with Alex D’Orio possibly backing up. Outside of that, #PlayYourKids?

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

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

Other Game to Watch: While hope is all but gone, the Penguins haven’t been officially eliminated from playoff contention, yet. Providence, who needs just one point to eliminate the Pens, host fifth place Lehigh Valley tonight in Rhode Island. You want a Phantoms win, regardless of how slim the Penguins playoff cause is going into tonight.

Remaining Games: vs. BRI 4/13, vs. BNG 4/14
