FSN Pittsburgh is commemorating the Penguins incredible 2007-08 season with a Thanksgiving Day of Pens special programming.

"We are very appreciative that the NHL has given us special permission to re-air the 2008 Winter Classic, along with Game Five of the 2008 Stanley Cup Finals on FSN Pittsburgh,” said Ted Black, Senior Vice President/General Manager, FSN.  “Fans should also know that thanks to Dick's Sporting Goods and Fifth Third Bank these telecasts will run with limited commercial interruption.  When we learned that the Penguins would wear the Winter Classic sweater as the new third jersey this year, we thought it would be fun to re-telecast the game when those blue jerseys were last worn.”
