Today’s game marks the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 100th straight sellout at Mellon Arena.
The streak dates back to February, 14, 2007, including every home regular season and playoff game.
“The sellout streak is a continuing tribute to the support, passion and dedication of Pittsburgh Penguins’ fans,” said team president David Morehouse. “Because of our fans, Pittsburgh is becoming known throughout the NHL and the hockey world as a hotbed of hockey support.”
“There is no question that our fans have played an essential role in the success we’ve had on the ice,” said general manager Ray Shero. “The fans have created a tremendous home atmosphere for our players and coaches, and have made it very special for all of us to be a part of Pittsburgh Penguins hockey.”
The Penguins sold out every regular season home game for the first time in franchise history in 2007-08 and are on pace to do it again this season.
