Pens playoff games to be shown on big screen
Share with others:
Penguins playoff games, home and away, again will be shown on a large TV screen outside of Gate 3 at Mellon Arena.
The screen attracted large crowds during the Penguins' surge to the Stanley Cup final in 2008.
"The big screen quickly became a destination for our fans during last season's playoff run," team president David Morehouse said. "We are looking forward to offering the outdoor viewing area once again this year and encourage those without tickets to the games to come and experience the tremendous playoff atmosphere."
The LED screen measures 12-feet-by-16-feet.
Team officials said grills, tents and alcohol will not be allowed in the area around Gate 3.
The Penguins' first-round playoff series against Philadelphia will begin Wednesday at 7:08 p.m. at Mellon Arena. Game 2 will be here Friday evening before the series shifts across the state.
