Why You Should Care: Should be a good one tonight in Springfield with two teams who are sound structurally and evenly matched. Pens will want to avoid penalties and look to block shots. Springfield will want to do the same.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

Watch: AHLTV is back for another season and better than ever.

Other Game to Watch: Hartford visits Rochester as their tour of Central New York continues this week. The Wolf Pack were handed just their second defeat of the season Wednesday in Syracuse and head to Rochester who are off to a good start themselves.
