Why You Should Care: Something has to give tonight with both teams coming off of losses Wednesday. Seems like its an important game for Wilkes-Barr who are in a tailspin of recent and need to get things back on track. Not allowing the opponent to score six goals is probably a good starting point. See where it goes from there.
