Countdown to the regular season

Blogger PensFan8725 over at Pensburgh set up a cool countdown to October 7 and the Pens regular season opener against the Flyers, which also happens to be the first ever game that matters at the new Consol Energy Center. That inspired me to start this photo countdown. Continue after the jump to see the earlier entries.

Support the Mellon Memorial

PensBoozeAnger came up with a pretty good idea for memorializing the Igloo inside the new Consol Energy Center. Read about it on pensblog or go ahead and join the facebook group.

Pens to distribute commemorative tickets for inaugural game

As they did for the final regular season game at Mellon Arena, the Pens are doing something special for the first regular season game at Consol Energy Center.

From the Pens website:

The Pittsburgh Penguins will distribute a ‘commemorative ticket’ to all fans attending the inaugural regular season game at CONSOL Energy Center on October 7 when they host the Philadelphia Flyers. Each one-of-a-kind aluminum ticket, presented by Trib Total Media, will be handmade by local artisans and craftsmen at Grove City-based Wendell August Forge.
