Penguins to open 2014-15 season at home against Anaheim
The Penguins don't yet have a coach, but they know against whom they will begin the 2014-15 season.
The Anaheim Ducks will play Oct. 9 at Consol Energy Center in the season opener for both teams.
Ducks goaltender John Gibson, a Whitehall native, could play against the Penguins for the first time.
The Penguins went 2-0 against Anaheim last season. Both teams lost a Game 7 on their home ice in the second round of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The full NHL schedule will be released Sunday.
