Things to watch for and the expected lineup for tonight's game after the jump.
Things You Should Watch For
For the Bears, Keith Aucoin (3G-13A), Chris Bourque (6G-8A) and Jacob MicFlikier (5G-7A) bring the offensive punch. The Penguins will need to know when and where these guys are on the ice at all times. Good forward depth, but these three guys are the main course so to speak.
For the Penguins, the defense will need to step up. Without Alexandre Picard and Brian Strait, the load falls onto the shoulders of guys like Robert Bortuzzo and Carl Sneep. Brad Thiessen will also need to continue to stand on his head if the Penguins are to have a chance tonight.

Colin McDonald (#13) - Bryan Lerg (#19) - Jason Williams (#18)
Eric Tangradi (#25) - Brian Gibbons (#9) - Niko Dimitrakos (#52)
