That dastardly peacock-hating big screen will make a return to a Penguins-hosted location.
The team will hold a viewing part outside the gate on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Washington Place for Thursday's season-opener against the Flyers at Consol Energy Center.
Additionally, players will enter the arean by way of a red carpet at the same location.
EN Says: Assuming the Penguins get a typical crowd for the big screen, we have to wonder what kind of logistical problems could arise from hosting a viewing party at that location. Compared to Gate 3 at the Civic Arena, it's a pretty tight space. And traffic at that intersection is a whole lot busier than at Washington Place where Gate 3 is. That said, it is supposed to rain and be in the mid 50s tomorrow, so maybe that will keep the crowd down.
We just realized we confused our days. Thursday is supposed to have a high of 68 degrees and will be partly cloudy. Kudos to EN commenter Stella for the heads up.
