It's a Hockey Night in Johnstown: Lightning @ Pens

New, comments

The Pittsburgh Penguins faceoff against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the preseason's most unique game


Kraft's 2015 Hockeyville contest was won by the fine folks in Johnstown, PA, and tonight is their crowning moment by getting to host an NHL pre-season game, after getting $150,000 in arena upgrades and upgraded ice-making equipment as well as scoreboard. The Pittsburgh Penguins are here, as are the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The game is televised on NBCSN, which will be great that nationally everyone can see what should be a good game and the latest in a long line of recent great moments for hockey in Western Pennsylvania.

It will be a unique night, if nothing else. Go Pens!

Expected lines, per Penguins.com:

Sergei Plotnikov - Evgeni Malkin - Patric Hornqvist

Chris Kunitz - Matt Cullen - Conor Sheary

Kevin Porter - Josh Archibald - Anton Zlobin

Kael Mouillierat - Matia Marcantuoni - Tom Sestito

Olli Maatta - Will O’Neill

Ian Cole - Brian Dumoulin

Adam Clendening - Steve Oleksy
