It will be a quick introduction for the Penguins' new coach and the home fans.

The Penguins will open the 2014-15 NHL season by playing seven of their first 10 games at Consol Energy Center, starting with the opener Oct. 9 against Anaheim.

There are some subtle differences from last season's schedule.

The Penguins will visit Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Buffalo twice this season and make trips to Florida, Tampa Bay, Boston and Detroit only once. Last season's schedule was opposite of that.

The Penguins visited Columbus three times last season, and the Flyers played three times at Consol Energy Center. This season, the Penguins will play three times in New Jersey, and the New York Islanders visit Pittsburgh for three.

The Penguins knocked Columbus out of the playoffs in six games in April. Those teams will renew their rivalry Dec. 13 in Ohio.

The Penguins will get their first crack at the New York Rangers, the team that knocked them out of the playoffs in the second round, on Nov. 11 at Madison Square Garden.

In the longest road trip of the season, the Penguins will play at Minnesota, Winnipeg, Buffalo, New York and Toronto over 11 days.

The season's longest homestand is four games.

Former Penguins star Jaromir Jagr, who now plays for the Devils, could play for the final time in Pittsburgh on Dec. 2.

Other schedule highlights include:

• Alexander Ovechkin and the Capitals play twice in Pittsburgh — Dec. 27 and Feb. 17.

• The Flyers play in Pittsburgh on Oct. 22 and April 1.

• Five of the Penguins' home games start at 8 p.m.

• The Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings visit the Penguins on Oct. 30.

• The Penguins have nine Saturday home games, including six at night, which is more than in recent seasons.

• The Penguins are scheduled to play seven afternoon games, four of which are at home.
