Pens to Hold '70s Theme Night At Wednesday's Game vs. Colorado

by Pittsburgh Penguins @penguins / Media Release

Fans are invited to wear their best '70s-inspired attire when the Penguins hold their third annual '70s Theme Night at Wednesday's game against Colorado. Game time at PPG Paints Arena is 7 p.m.

Collections of arcade games, bicycles and collectibles from the '70s will be among the many special displays in the Highmark Wall of Champions Hallway, located on the FedEx Level between sections 110 and 115.

All fans in attendance will receive "Hanson Brothers glasses" like those worn in the '70s hockey movie "Slap Shot." Dave Hanson, one of the three hockey-playing brothers from the movie, will be on hand to pose for selfies and sign autographs during intermissions.

Pinball and video games from the '70s that will be available for fans include Disco Fever, Wizard, Bobby Orr's Power Play, Hot Tip, Gorgar, Asteroids, Space Invaders, Breakout and Galaxian.

There also will be '70s displays from Bicycle Heaven and Chipper's Trains and Collectibles. A 1975 Chevrolet Corvette convertible will be on display at the Verizon Gate.

Additionally, Pittsburgh's folk rock band November Blue, now based out of Nashville, will perform a variety of '70s cover songs.

Special items at PensGear stores will include '70s-themed t-shirts and pucks.

Penguins mascot Iceburgh, in-arena host Celina Pompeani and members of the Orr's Jewelers Ice Crew will be wearing '70s-inspired attire. The game-night presentation will also include numerous video and musical elements from the 1970s.

The game will be televised nationally by NBCSN.

The Penguins' next theme night promotion will be Halloween Theme night on October 29 vs. Philadelphia. Other theme nights - including '80s, '90s and Star Wars - will follow throughout the season.
