Here are the Penguins pre-season broadcast/media plans
The Pittsburgh Penguins will begin their exhibition schedule with a full house at PPG Paints Arena.
Not because the Columbus Blue Jackets — albeit improved — are a major draw, but because it will be the Penguins’ “kids free game,” a preseason staple for more than a year. decade.
The game is scheduled for Sept. 25 at 1 p.m. and will be the start of a doubleheader, with a nightcap scheduled for 7 p.m. at Nationwide Arena in Columbus.
The Penguins plan to distribute more than 18,000 tickets for the afternoon game to a number of area youth organizations.
Both games against the Blue Jackets will be streamed on the Penguins’ website, as will their home game against Detroit on Sept. 27. (These games will only be available to people living in the local AT&T SportsNet region.)
AT&T SportsNet will broadcast the Pittsburgh Penguins’ two exhibition games against Buffalo, Oct. 1 at KeyBank Center and Oct. 7 at PPG Paints Arena.
The Penguins game in Detroit on Oct. 3 will not be available online or on TV, but will air on 105.9 FM, like all of their other preseason contests. Josh Getzoff and Phil Bourque will handle radio.
