Why You Should Care: First game of the new season for both teams. First under the new regime of GM, Head Coach and Calder Cup winner Mike Vellucci. How do the Penguins start tonight in front of what’s going to be an amped up Bears crowd at home on a Saturday night? You want to start off the campaign with a win, as that’s the first step that all the teams want when they show up at training camp. Should be a good one in this storied rivalry between these two sides.
Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.
Other Game to Watch: The Atlantic Division had off on the Opening Night last night in the AHL, so keep an eye on Providence visiting Lehigh Valley tonight.
Next Five Games: @ LV 10/11, vs. UTI 10/12, @ HER 10/13, vs. BNG 10/16, @ BRI 10/19
