Anybody in the SouthWestern PA area I would suggest making the drive to Wheeling to watch a great Penguins AAA farm club the Wheeling Nailers. They are starting the playoffs April 16, tickets are very cheap and the action in my opinion is way better than anything the NHL offers. They are a great team full of passionate players trying to make a name for themselves. If you like ice hockey the way it used to be check them out. The team prides itself in being one of the toughest teams in the ECHL and there is always lots of hard hitting and trash talking. If your in Pittsburgh its only about an hour drive and its well worth it.http://www.wheelingnailers.com/

A cool thing also is that one of the Nailers biggest rivals is the Johnstown Chiefs the team that the movie Slapshot was based on.
