Not including traffic it's about a 5-15 minute drive to the CEC, and actually only about 15-20 mins away if you feel like walking, as you can go through the 10th street tunnel and be pretty much right by Duquesne University and the CEC.
Only close hotel I know of is the Holliday Inn Express right by the 10th St bridge. It's probably pretty expensive and booked up fairly often but IMO a pretty choice location where you could party, go to and from the game and never need to drive or even use a taxi.
IMO Pittsburgh has one of the worst downtowns for nightlife as it closes down pretty early but there are some good restaurants and cool places to check out during the day. As far as ice time goes, I'm not sure about anything directly in the city but there are rinks in the surrounding neighborhoods/suburbs.
Awesome, thanks for all the info.
