Although the season is over, this week has been filled with nothing but good news concerning the Penguins. The 2010-2011 regular season schedule has just been released, and on October 7, 2010, the Consol Energy Center will open its doors as the Penguins host the reigning Eastern Conference Champions, and rivals, the Philadelphia Flyers. This match-up that will surely get the 18,000 fans going, and it will be enjoyable for those on and off the ice. The opening of the new arena has been anticipated for what seems like years, and it will finally be open for all of the Penguins fans to cheer on their favorite players.

There are a couple notable games this season: First, there is the opening game which I mentioned above. The Philadelphia Flyers bring the rivalry to town, and they will have to face an additional 1,000 screaming and chanting die-hard fans.

Another pivotal point in the schedule is the very popular Winter Classic, which will be held at Heinz Field on January 1. This game is hosting another rival of ours: the infamous Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals. This game will gain national attention and Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin will face off as not only for face-offs but for the title of the “face of the NHL,” which is always a common topic for hockey lovers. Hopefully Heinz Field will bring the Penguins as much luck as it has brought the Steelers, and the question of whom the face of the NHL will finally be put to rest.

Here’s a little recent fact about the Winter Classic: the team who wins the game goes on to win the Stanley Cup the next year. I back this up by saying that the Penguins won in 2008 when they played in Buffalo, and they went on to triumph in the Cup in 2009. Most recently, the Chicago Blackhawks won the Winter Classic in 2009, and they won the cup just a few weeks ago. If this fact is true, the Winter Classic could be more than just a game; it could determine the future for either team.

This season will have a brand new look on the outside, but the hearts of the fans and players will still be the same on the inside. Good luck to the Penguins in this coming season, and I am sure that the Consol Energy Center will bring a lot of memories to the city of Pittsburgh starting on October 7th and will continue for many more years to come.
