The Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night welcomed back fans into PPG Paints Arena for the first time since March 8, 2020 for a matchup with the in-state rival Philadelphia Flyers. Unfortunately, the Penguins generated some bad press for something that did not even take place on the rink during the team’s 5-2 win.


The Penguins shared a photo on the team’s official Twitter feed showcasing fans in the stands during Tuesday’s game. It showed everyone in attendance masked up and following protocols.
