A Pittsburgh Penguins
fan attending Wednesday night's home game against the St. Louis Blues
will discover that 25 million is his or her lucky number.
The Penguins plan to honor the 25-millionth fan to attend one of their home games by giving away a road trip to a Penguins game and a Sidney Crosby
autographed jersey. Bar code technology will be used to determine when the fan has entered Consol Energy Center.
The fan will be notified during the first period and recognized during the second period.
Counting regular season and playoff games, the Penguins have drawn 24,983,853 spectators at home since they joined the NHL in 1967. They have attracted 22,733,362 for regular season games and 2,250,491 for playoff games.
The Blues game will be the Penguins' 220th consecutive home sellout, a streak that began at the now-closed Civic Arena, formerly known as Mellon Arena, and continued when they moved into Consol at the start of the 2010-11 season.
