/ Pittsburgh Penguins
The Penguins will play before their 200th straight home sellout when they host the Montreal Canadiens Saturday at 2 p.m. at CONSOL Energy Center.
The sellout streak – by far the longest in franchise history – began on Feb. 14, 2007 against the Chicago Blackhawks at Mellon Arena.
The Penguins are on pace to sell out every home game for the fourth straight season.
Before 2007-08, the team had never sold out every game in a season.
“Our fans are incredible,” said David Morehouse, CEO and President of the Penguins. “Their support, their passion, and their love for the team and the game of hockey give us a true home-ice advantage, and help to make Pittsburgh such a strong hockey city. We salute them.”
Fans attending Saturday’s game are also reminded that Pittsburgh’s annual St. Patrick’s Day parade will be held downtown on Saturday morning.
