The Pittsburgh Penguins established another attendance record Wednesday night with their 41st sellout of the season – marking the first time in club history, dating back to 1967, that the Penguins have sold out every game of the regular season.
The previous club record for sellouts in a season was 34, set in 1988-89 and tied in 1989-90.
Overall, it was the Penguins’ 54th straight regular season sellout, also a club record.
“This is ‘Fan Appreciation Night,’ with our ‘Shirts Off Our Backs’ promotion, and we want to make sure our fans know how much we appreciate their support and enthusiasm for Penguins hockey,” said team president David Morehouse. “From our ownership, management, staff, players and coaches, we want to say ‘Thank you’ to the greatest fans in hockey.”
