Why You Should Care: Hartford comes in on a six game winning streak and the Penguins, while they played great last night, have lost five straight. It’s the first time these teams have played each other all season and should be a good measuring stick for the Penguins on how they stack up against this really good Hartford side.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

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

Other Game to Watch: Fourth place Providence travels to third place Springfield. The Thunderbirds have been rolling and the P-Bruins have been on a skid. Should be an interesting one to keep and eye on.
