Penguins viewing party Downtown will depend on the weather

Fans watch the Penguins game on the big screen outside Consol Energy Center in 2016. The screen will be set up at Centre Avenue and Logan Street for Game 3 against the New York Islanders on Sunday, April 14, 2019, but it will be dependent on the weather.

This afternoon’s weather will determine if Penguins fans can enjoy Sunday’s Game 3 outdoors.

The KeyBank Big Screen will be in operation for all home playoff games at the corner of Centre Avenue and Logan Street, with activation beginning two hours before game time.

But with rough weather in the forecast for Sunday afternoon, Penguin officials said fans’ safety is the priority.

“In the event of severe weather – such as heavy rain, high winds or lightning – we would take down the screen until the weather passes,” officials said in a press release. “Fans would be advised to seek shelter. If the weather passes while the game is still going on, the screen would go back up and the viewing party would continue.”

The band Ferris Bueller’s Revenge will perform on the Canada Dry Stage. Fans can also test their skills at interactive games known as the “Penguins Combine” from the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex, and face painters also will be available at no charge.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
