The Los Angeles Kings have only just recently been crowned the 2012 Stanley Cup Champions, but that doesn’t stop the true fans from thinking about hockey and that includes next season. And, for Penguins fans, that means only 103 days left until we get to enjoy Pittsburgh hockey once again!
Today, the Pittsburgh Penguins announced their pre-season schedule for 2012 made up of three home and away games each for a total of six contests beginning towards the end of September.
It appears that the games will be broadcast live with the Penguins webpage giving the additional notation that “broadcast information for all pre-season games will be announced at a later date” and I would assume that FSN – Pittsburgh would be the station to air the games.
Monday, September 24th at Columbus 7:00 PM (est)
Wednesday, September 26th vs. Detroit 7:00 PM (est)
Saturday, September 29th vs. Columbus 3:00 PM (est)
Sunday, September 30th at Chicago 7:00 PM (est)
Wednesday, October 3rd at Detroit 7:00 PM (est)
Friday, October 5 vs. Chicago 7:00 PM (est)
Those individuals having half-season ticket plans will likely get tickets to one of the two home games while the third home game (September 29th) has been designated as the Penguins “Free Game for Kids.” This will be the third year that the Penguins have set aside a pre-season game especially for their younger fans and they will provide more information at a later date.
