Why You Should Care: Pens look to keep rolling here at home against the Bruins for the first meeting of the season. Bruins are playing some really good hockey so this should be a decent test to see how Wilkes-Barre stacks up against Bruins whom we assume will be in contention all season in the Atlantic Division race.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

Promotion(s): None.
