Default Red Carpet Entrance

Red Carpet Entrance For Players, Outdoor Screen To Highlight Penguins’ Opening Night Activities
Tuesday, 10.05.2010 / 4:33 PM / Features
Pittsburgh Penguins
A red carpet entrance for the players and an outdoor screen for fans to watch all the action will be among the highlights Thursday night when the Penguins play the first regular-season game ever at CONSOL Energy Center.

Penguins players will walk a red carpet to enter the arena at the American Eagle Outfitters Gate – at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Washington Place. Fans are invited. Players are expected to be entering between 4:15-5:00 p.m.

An outdoor screen will be placed at the same location for fans to watch the 7 p.m. game against the Philadelphia Flyers, as well as pre-game festivities.

“It already is going to be a very special night, but we wanted to do some unique things outside the arena for our fans,” said Penguins CEO David Morehouse. “The red carpet entrance will give fans a glimpse of our players heading into the first regular-season game in the history of CONSOL Energy Center. And the outdoor screen has become such an iconic symbol of playoff hockey in Pittsburgh – we thought it would be great to have the screen for the first game.”

For fans attending the sold-out game, there will be an exciting ceremony before the game inside CONSOL Energy Center. Fans are asked to be in their seats by 6:45 p.m.

Gonna do my best to get down there for this Thursday night. Would be a treat for all of us...especially my daughter who's never been to a hockey game yet! I can't wait for Thursday to hurry up and get here either way!
