Last Meeting: December 3 in Wilkes-Barre, the Pens won 4-2. Chris Collins had a pair of goals for the Pens in the win.
Why you should care: The Senators are right in the thick of this playoff race and can not afford to lose two straight games on home ice heading into the All-Star break. The Sens have played Wilkes-barre tough all season, which means this game is going to be a fun one to watch tonight. Bobby Butler and Corey Locke are going to All-Stars, Locke as the leagues point leader and Butler as the leagues rookie point leader. Thee Pens will need to hold one of if not both of them off the score sheet to have success tonight in Binghamton.
