Penn State Victoriously Christens New Pegula Ice Arena

Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula said that he wanted the new, state-of-the-art Pegula Ice Arena to sound like a garbage can.

The Penn State faithful gave him his wish on Friday night.

The Nittany Lions opened up their season, and their new barn, with a 4-1 victory over Army.

If there was any doubt that Big Ten hockey was going to thrive in Hockey Valley that was put to rest last night. A sea of blue and white filled the arena. Penn State was no longer playing in the cramped confines of the Greenberg Ice Pavilion. They were playing in a packed house filled with passionate hockey fans. The crowd was engaged from the opening faceoff and brought enough energy to spark the Nittany Lions early in the game.

Nate Jensen got Penn State on the board at 3:02 of the first period. Taylor Holstrom found Jensen at the left point. Jensen walked the blueline toward the middle of the ice and rifled a slap shot that beat Rob Tadazak through a screen. The crowd erupted with the sound of Penn State’s new goal horn.

Just over a minute later, Jonathan Milley would be whistled for high sticking and Army would go on its first of 10 power plays in the game.

Would love to see more D1 hockey schools, especially Big 10. It raises hockey's visibility significantly.
