Two Pittsburgh playoff traditions - "Gold Outs" and the outdoor Big Screen - will return when the Pittsburgh Penguins host the Nashville Predators in Games 1 and 2 of the Stanley Cup Final at PPG Paints Arena.
Game 1 will be played Monday at 8:00PM (NBC) and Game 2 will be Wednesday at 8:00PM (NBCSN).
PPG Paints Arena will again be golden as the Penguins distribute gold t-shirts and towels to all fans in attendance. The team's three playoff presenting partners - PPG, UPMC and IGS Energy - will provide the t-shirts, along with Highmark. AAA Travel and bai (Dr. Pepper Snapple) will provide the towels.
Outside the arena, the popular Big Screen will again be located near the Peoples Gate, at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Washington Place.
The KeyBank Fan Zone will be activated outside all three gates starting two hours before each home game. There will be different activities at each gate, including DJs, interactives, face painters and appearances by Iceburgh and the Penguins' Ice Crew. There also will be two party tents outside - one at the Trib Total Media Gate, presented by Pittsburgh Brewing, and one at the Verizon Gate, presented by Coors Light.
NBC and the NHL Network will have their pre-game broadcast sets outside at the Trib Total Media Gate.
