The Penguins will show Game 1 of their playoff series against Montreal tonight on the big outdoor screen by Gate 3 at Mellon Arena, but have opted not to stream Game 2 there.

The team said in a release it is "not permitted to show Game 2 on the outdoor screen Sunday afternoon in accordance with league broadcasting rights."

NBC, which is scheduled to televise the game Sunday, usually does not allow its games to be shown in such outdoor settings by NHL clubs, although Buffalo showed an NBC game in a similar fashion during the first round of this year's playoffs.

The rest of the Penguins' second-round games will be shown on the outdoor screen.
