Pittsburgh - January 20, 2012

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

Pittsburgh may be best known as “Steel City” but one visit to the Pennsylvanian hub and you’ll quickly discover why its other nickname is “The City of Bridges”. With 446 bridges around town, finding names for all of them could be a challenge. That’s where the city’s multiple professional sports teams come in. Fans looking to take in a baseball game in the summer need to cross The Roberto Clemente Bridge pictured here, named after the former Pirates Hall-of-Famer. With a new bridge in the works linking downtown Montreal to the South Shore, we’ve heard rumors our own fair city might be dipping into the Canadiens’ roster to find a suitable name. The Maurice Richard Bridge does have a pretty nice ring to it…

If you’re tuning into Friday’s game from the comfort of home, you might notice a sparse crowd directly behind the Penguins’ bench at the start of each period. That has everything to do with this luxury lounge located directly across from Pittsburgh’s dressing room. In addition to 26 seats at ice level, groups renting out Suite 66 for a night also get exclusive access to watch the players head out onto the ice for warm-up and each period from the comfort of this specially-designed Mario Lemieux-themed suite.
