Two Pittsburgh playoff traditions - "Gold Outs" and the outdoor Big Screen - will return when the Pittsburgh Penguins host the Washington Capitals in Games 3 and 4 of the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs at PPG Paints Arena.
Game 3 will be played on Monday, May 1 at 7:30 p.m. and Game 4 will be held Wednesday, May 3 at 7:30. Both games will be televised locally and nationally by NBCSN.
PPG Paints Arena will again be golden as the Penguins distribute gold t-shirts and towels to all fans in attendance. The team's three playoff presenting partners - PPG, UPMC and IGS Energy - will provide the t-shirts, and PPG and AAA Travel will provide the towels.
Outside the arena, the popular Big Screen will again be located near the Peoples Gate, at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Washington Place.
The KeyBank Fan Zone will be activated outside all three gates starting two hours before each home game. There will be different activities at each gate, including DJs, interactives, face painters and appearances by Iceburgh and the Penguins' Ice Crew. There also will be two party tents outside - one at the Trib Total Media Gate, presented by Pittsburgh Brewing, and one at the Verizon Gate, presented by Coors Light.
A limited number of tickets remain. Tickets may be purchased at ticketmaster.com, at the DICK'S Sporting Goods Box Office at PPG Paints Arena, or by calling 1-800-745-3000.
