Pittsburgh Penguins News – 2013 Penguins Updates
9/10/13 - After being surprisingly swept out of the Eastern Conference Finals by the Bruins in 2013, the Penguins will once again be Stanley Cup favorites this season. The average price for Penguins tickets at the Consol Energy Center in 2013-14 is $208, 11th highest in the NHL and 20% over league average. The most expensive Penguins home game is on 1/15 against the new Metropolitan Division
rival Washington Capitals
, averaging $220. On 3/1, the Penguins take on the defending-champion Blackhawks in an outdoor NHL Stadium Series
game at Soldier Field
2/25/13 - Currently sitting in 2nd in the Atlantic Division, the Pittsburgh Penguins have had an impressive 2013 season thus far. Captain Sidney Crosby is leading the League in assists and is second in total points, and right wing James Neal is coming off a 40-goal season and has netted 12 goals (tied for first in the League) in the first 17 games.
Much of the Pittsburgh Penguins success has come on the road; in fact, Pittsburgh was 4-1 on the road in January and 4-1 two-thirds of the way through February. It's no surprise then that the Penguins are the second most expensive road team; average away game Penguins tickets are $171. Key away matchups left on the Penguins schedule include:
(4/19) at TD Garden
with the average Bruins tickets costing $221 and New Jersey Devils
(4/25) at the Prudential Center
with the average Devils tickets costing $103. Is it cheaper to see the Penguins play rival Philadelphia Flyers
at home or on the road? The answer is on the road. The two games at Wells Fargo Center-PA
in 2013 average $163 when the rivals play; the two games at Consol Energy Center
average $210 ($24 less per ticket than last season when the two teams met in Pittsburgh).
Only nine teams in the League saw a decrease in average ticket prices since last year and Pittsburgh Penguin tickets were one of them. The average Penguins hockey ticket is down seven percent, averaging $188 for home games.
