Facing Arch-Rival Flyers Adds To Opening Night Excitement:

Finally, after years of hype and buildup, CONSOL Energy Center will officially make its regular-season debut on Thursday night when the Penguins begin the 2010-11 campaign by hosting the Philadelphia Flyers at 7 p.m. in a nationally-televised contest on Versus.

I'm so jealous of everyone who will be in the new Arena tonight for the start of the season and start of a new era in Pittsburgh sports. There's no better team to be playing than the Flyers. I can't wait to watch it.

How proud must Mario be today? He's had many great moments, 3 cups, come backs from cancer and retirements but I think this may very well be his biggest moment. Thank You big guy! The night is yours, enjoy the moment you deserve it!
