The National Hockey League announced that the Penguins’ game at Carolina originally scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 15 has been changed to Wednesday, Oct. 14.
Faceoff will be at 7 p.m. at the RBC Center
The date was changed because Oct. 15 is the opening day of the North Carolina State Fair, which will be held at the State Fairgrounds, adjacent to the RBC Center.
The date change helps to shorten an early-season road trip by one day. The Penguins play at Philadelphia on Oct. 8, at Toronto on Oct. 10, at Ottawa on Oct. 12 and now at Carolina on Oct. 14.
