The Pittsburgh Penguins established another attendance record tonight, selling out every home game for the second straight season.
Last season, 2007-08, marked the first time since the inception of the franchise in 1967 that the Penguins had sold out every regular-season home game -- and now they have done it in back-to-back years.
Counting playoffs, the Penguins have sold out 107 straight games at Mellon Arena.
“It is appropriate that tonight is ‘Fan Appreciation Night,’ because it gives us another opportunity to say thank you to the greatest fans in hockey,” said team president David Morehouse. “The amazing fan support here in Pittsburgh is the driving force behind our success, and is appreciated by everyone in the Penguins organization – ownership, management, staff, players and coaches.”
