Check the Pittsburgh Penguins schedule. You may have a better chance to see a game in person. As more and more citizens are vaccinated in Pennsylvania, the commonwealth’s COVID restrictions on public gatherings are relaxing. As a result, more Penguins tickets will be on sale.
The Penguins’ maximum capacity at PPG Paints Arena will reach close to 5,000 beginning on April 15, when the Penguins play their first home game after a lengthy six-game road trip that begins Thursday in Boston and concludes on April 11 in New Jersey.
The tickets will go on sale seven days hence, on April 1, at 10 a.m.
Pro Tip: We’ve heard some folks have luck sneaking in a few minutes early to get tickets. Just don’t leave the game early.
You can purchase the tickets through Ticketmaster: www.ticketmaster.com/penguins.
And just in case you needed more incentive to attend a Penguins game, they will host the Philadelphia Flyers on April 15. We expect you to make sure there is little to no orange and black in the arena that night, especially with such limited seating.
The Pittsburgh Penguins currently lead the Flyers by 10 points in the MassMutual East Division. The Flyers may have hit rock bottom as the lowly Buffalo Sabres squashed them 6-1 on Wednesday night. The victory ended Buffalo’s 18-game winless streak and extended Philadelphia’s month-long misery in which they fell out of the playoff seedings and well behind the pack in the division.
The Penguins have won four straight and are cruising to their 15th straight playoff appearance.
