Weather forecast looks good for Penguins-Flyers
Pittsburgh set a new weather record today, with temperatures reaching a summer-like 76 degrees.
But it’s supposed to cool down considerably tomorrow, with only a chance of showers during the day -- good news with the Penguins and Flyers set to play outdoors at Heinz Field.
Game time tomorrow is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET (on NBC).
“It’ll be fun, and what the weather is, because it’s unpredictable, is one of the great intriguing parts of putting on these games,” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said in a radio interview, per the Post-Gazette.
The last time the Penguins played outdoors at Heinz Field, in the 2011 Winter Classic, the threat of rain forced the start time from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.
