Yes, it'd be blacked out.

I was really hoping for a home game to go to Sunday because I'm off for MLK day that Monday. I suppose I can still dream. Also, does anyone know if the 50% off deal will apply to authentic jerseys? May have to buy two and sell one on eBay...

I can easily see a situation where my cat rubs up against it and just knocks it over.

It may not happen now, but he's not going to stay a kitten forever..

If I could put it on the wall then this would be easily solved, but I'm not allowed to do that.

Why would the nhl have the pens play rangers and islanders five times and flyers only 4 times? Its prob better for pens to play the islanders 5 times but doesn't make much sense from the nhl point of view.

Maybe it's not just about the rivalries. When creating a schedule, there are a ton of logistics the NHL has to keep in mind. Perhaps, for whatever reason, the best schedule they could put together has the Penguins playing the Flyers only 4 times instead of 5.

Also heard the Penguins home opener is on the 23rd against the Leafs. But that came from Rossi, so.....

Dude... I may jack your line, haha! I can already hear his phony response, filled with how appreciative he is for us and how sorry he is, but it's a business and sometimes that happens in a business.

According to leaks and rumours we'll be playing Philadelphia on the 19th of Jan and 7th of March at their place whilst they visit us on the 26th Feb and the 24th March.

We play Winnipeg at their place on the 25th of Jan, 15th of Feb and they visit us on the 25th of March.

can't believe Pens schedule hasn't leaked yet. Rossi (among many others I assume) obviously has it right in front of him.

It took all of 20 minutes for someone to leak the Rangers schedule.

Depending on the teams progress, along with Philly's, I might have to fly in for that 2/26 game. Dats mi burffdey

Word is the last game of the season for the Pens will be on April 27th vs. the Hurricanes. Looks like Staal only visits Consol once this season unless the Pens and Canes meet in the playoffs.

That's my personal pick for game of the season.
Talk about a season finale.

Why the Hell does the NHL not give us what they owe and lift all the ******* blackouts? Screw those pigs. First row sports for me.

About time it was leaked.

Why are there so many 7:30PM starts this year?

Too many afternoon games, that's not the way to attract new fans. People go out during the day on weekends, the NHL needs to get the best and most entertaining team in the league playing at night, when people might actually be watching tv.

NBC needs to ditch the Sunday "Game of the Week" and take after what FOX does with MLB - Saturday regional games. Imagine if NBC had "Hockey Night in America" on Saturday nights. Regional games starting at 7 PM, and maybe even double-headers out west that start at 10 PM. More teams get exposed nationally and it would bring in more revenue.

We're not the only entertaining team in the league, plenty of other teams are playing at night.

Here is the schedule from the Pens' site, official now. Open on road against Philly and Rangers as predicted. End of schedule is not nearly as rough as last year, fortunately.

Wow. I see a LOT of injuries this season on our glass-like team. It's basically a game every other night, if it isn't a back to back lol.
