The Penguins and Bears begin the first of back-to-back meetings this weekend in games that don't mean anything in terms of playoff positioning for these two teams. The Pens are stamped as the #1 team and the Bears #2 in the East Divison. What these games could do, however, is allow for one club to make a statement heading into the postseason. These two teams could very well meet in the second round of the playoffs. I will be at tonight's game and will have live updates on tonight's game on my blog's Twitter feed @H_P_Hockey. The game thread will be up at 6:30 p.m. EST. Puck drops at 7.
