Big Screen Returns for Pittsburgh Penguins Playoff Run

Not that there was much doubt, the outdoor viewing venue is now a well established tradition during the Stanley Cup playoffs.

The quest for a three-peat begins in earnest Wednesday when the Pittsburgh Penguins host the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 1 of Round 1 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. As has been tradition for a decade, fans unable to get tickets inside PPG Paints Arena will still be able to watch the game and share the excitement outside. The Pens announced Monday the return of the outdoor big screen for all home games during the playoffs. 

The big screen will be located near the gate at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Washington Place. Prior to the opening faceoff, fans will be entertained by a DJ, face painters, interactive games and appearances by special guests. If you arrive with an appetite, food trucks are scheduled to be available along Centre Avenue. All of the outside arena activities begin at 5 p.m.

Every fan entering PPG Paints Arena will be given gold t-shirts and towels for a “Gold Out.”

Pens fans also can show their pride by picking up a free playoff yard sign, while supplies last, at Pittsburgh area DICK'S Sporting Goods locations.
