'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The Pittsburgh Penguins' first game in the new Consol Energy Center will be a Sept. 22 exhibition game against the Detroit Red Wings.

The Penguins regularly play two home preseason games but, because of the new arena, they added a third game this season. The other home games will be Sept. 25 against Columbus and Sept. 28 against Stanley Cup champion Chicago.

Road exhibition games will be Sept. 24 at Columbus, Oct. 1 at Chicago and Oct. 3 at Detroit.

The NHL regular season schedule is expected to be announced next week.

New starting time for home games

The Penguins also announced that they are joining the rest of the NHL Atlantic Division by moving the starting times of their home night games to 7 p.m. Eastern.

Previously, the Penguins were the only team in the five-team division that started its games at 7:30 p.m.

The club cited fan feedback as one reason for the shift.

While the starting times at Mellon Arena were listed at 7:30 p.m., games started at 7:38 p.m. to accommodate TV. The actual starting time under the new format is expected to be 7:08 p.m.
