Why You Should Care: Pens look to keep the momentum going this weekend in Hartford. They beat the Wolf Pack at their home the last time they played there, just the second time all season where a visitor has come in and done that. Look for Dustin Tokarski to possibly get the start against his old team.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

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

Other Game to Watch: Springfield are in Providence taking on the Bruins. You just want the game to end in regulation if you are a Pens fan watching this playoff race.

Next Five Games: @ PRO 2/23, vs. PRO 2/26, @ SYR 2/28, @ HER 2/29, @ BNG 3/6
