Wings to help open new Pens\' arena
DETROIT – The Red Wings will help the Pittsburgh Penguins christen, sort of, its new arena this September.

The Penguins’ new home, CONSOL Energy Center, will first host seven concerts in August and September, including a pair of soldout dates by legendary musician and former Beatle Paul McCartney on August 18-19.

The Red Wings will play a part in the arena's first sporting event when they play the Penguins on Sept. 22 at 7 p.m. EDT.

The Pens announced their 2010-11 pre-season scheduled on Wednesday. 

Perhaps a strange coincidence is the odd number of the seating capacity for the new CONSOL Energy Center, which is posted on the arena’s website as 18,087. Pens captain Sidney Crosby wears No. 87.

Either way, the Penguins have added 1,147 seats over capacity of their old home, Mellon Arena, which used to seat 16,940 fans.

The Red Wings will host the Pens in a pre-season game on Oct. 3 at Joe Louis Arena.
