Fans are encouraged to arrive a bit earlier for games at CONSOL Energy Center due to heightened security measures that will be in place. Prior to the start of the season, NHL security mandated that all fans entering NHL arenas be screened with hand-held wands by arena security personnel. The goal is to create the safest possible environment for fans in arenas across the league. The Penguins thank you for your cooperation.
Stop by “The Carvery” located by Section 107 to purchase one of Friday’s special chef-prepared creations: Roasted rib eye with vine ripe tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella and herb aioli on ciabatta bread.
Pick up your tickets for the new Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation 50/50 Raffle for a chance to win Friday’s jackpot. Proceeds from this evening’s raffle benefit Western Pennsylvania Police Benevolent Foundation and the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation.
