Momentum Builds for Whiteout, Big Screen As Pens Prepare For Game 2 Friday Night
/ Pittsburgh Penguins
Momentum is building for two Penguins playoff traditions – the Whiteout, and the big screen – as the Pens look ahead to Game 2 of their first-round playoff series Friday night against Tampa Bay at CONSOL Energy Center.
The Penguins are encouraging fans to “Wear Your White” – white jerseys, sweatshirts, sweaters, shirts or t-shirts – for all home playoff games.
Fans also have the option to purchase the Official Penguins Whiteout t-shirt, on sale now at the PensGear store at CONSOL Energy Center and local Dick’s Sporting Goods locations. There are special designs for males and females – each on sale for $14.99. A portion of the proceeds will go to The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation to support youth activities, including youth hockey.
In addition, the team will distribute white rally towels to all 18,000-plus fans, courtesy of Verizon.
The popular big screen made its 2011 playoff debut at a new location – in the Civic Arena south parking lot, just across Centre Avenue from CONSOL Energy Center. An enthusiastic crowd watched Game 1 Wednesday on the 16’ x 9’ HD screen.
The screen is presented by Trib Total Media.
