The Pittsburgh Penguins will play a rare Monday matinee. In response to the NFL moving the Steelers game to Monday at 4:30 p.m., due to extreme weather in Buffalo on Sunday, the Penguins moved their Monday game time to 1 p.m. for a simple reason.
The Penguins want fans to be able to watch the Steelers game, too.
“When you play Pittsburgh, you play the whole city,” said Penguins president of business operations Kevin Acklin. “The Penguins are proud to adjust our puck drop to 1:00 PM on Monday against the Kraken to allow our fans time to get back home and watch our beloved Steelers win over the Bills.”
The gates will open at 11:30 a.m.
Monday is Dr. Martin Luther King Day.
