Mike Lange Night, special theme nights and the 40th anniversary celebration of the U.S. Olympic team's "Miracle On Ice" highlight the Pittsburgh Penguins promotional schedule for the 2019-20 season.
Lange will be entering his 45th season as a Penguins broadcaster, and the team will celebrate his amazing Hall of Fame career with "Mike Lange Night" on October 8 vs. Winnipeg at PPG Paints Arena. All fans in attendance that night will receive a special Lange bobblehead as part of the festivities (including a pre-game ceremony on the ice).
Eight popular theme nights, which give fans an opportunity to "dress the part," will range from the traditional "Ugly Holiday Sweaters" (two nights) to "Star Wars" to a newly-created "Pittsburgh" theme night, celebrating Pittsburgh memorabilia and pop culture. There will be two theme nights in October - "The 1970s" on October 16 vs. Colorado and "Halloween" on October 29 vs. Philadelphia.
A recent addition to the promo schedule is the 40th anniversary celebration of the 1980 U.S. Olympic team's "Miracle On Ice," to be held at the Penguins' February 11 game vs. Tampa Bay. Our special guest that night will be Mike Eruzione, the U.S. team captain who scored the winning goal in a 4-3 upset victory over the Soviet Union. Penguins players and alums will offer their insights into the impact of that gold medal achievement on hockey in the United States.
The schedule also features a Jim Rutherford bobblehead on November 19 vs. the New York Islanders - honoring the general manager who built back-to-back Stanley Cup champions in 2016 and 2017, and who will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame this year.
In addition, at the October 10 game vs. Anaheim, the first 3,000 kids ages 12 and under in attendance will receive a Sidney Crosby Growth Chart.
