It was a beautiful, sunny day to watch the Pens play the New York Rangers in the fifth game of the first round of the NHL Playoffs on the big screen outside of the Consol. The audience was a diverse group of people who had assembled to enjoy the game and have some fun. Free Penguin clappers were given out to all that wanted them. Food options included vendors: TGI Friday’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, Dairy Queen and food trucks from Nakama and Legends of the North Shore. A good time was had by all, especially with the Penguins beating the Rangers handily and heading to the second round of the playoffs.
