Sports broadcast personality Mark Madden is heading to New Kensington to host a watch party Tuesday night as the Pittsburgh Penguins face off against the New Jersey Devils.

Madden invited fans and the general public via Twitter to join him at the event at Leo’s Sport Page at The Quality Inn on Tarentum Bridge Road.

The puck drops at 7 p.m.

Madden hosts a weekday afternoon show on WXDX-FM 105.9 “The X” radio station and is a sports columnist for the Tribune-Review.

During Tuesday’s game, Madden will do a meet-and-greet, talk hockey and answer “pretty much anything people have questions about,” said Daniel Leo, 50, of Leechburg, who co-owns Leo’s Sports Page with his wife, Brenda Leo.

Customers can expect typical bar fare like hot wings and local creations, including homemade soups and a California chicken sandwich by Brenda Leo and top-seller “The Jagoff Burger,” which comes with grilled onions, pickles, barbecue sauce and pepperjack cheese.

“I think people order it mostly because of the name,” Daniel Leo said. “We kind of yinzer’ed the menu up a little.”

Since taking ownership of the sports bar and restaurant last February, the Leos knocked out a wall to make room for a large dance floor similar to one that anchored the same space in the 1980s.

“We’re trying to get it back to its old glory,” Daniel Leo said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
