Say howdy to the modern Igloo. The Penguins are currently on the hunt for new ownership and they’re in the process of trying to sell the team that plays in this particular rink. Since 2010, the Consol Energy Center has served as the home of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Even in its short period of existence, the Pens have carved out some notable franchise moments thanks to a roster that includes the likes of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have spent the bulk of their ’10s home games at the Consol Energy Center. Dubbed by some as The House That Crosby Built, the club made their move from their old digs not too long after notching their first non-Lemieux Stanley Cup. The club hasn’t made their way back to the Finals since the move, but the building has hosted its share of worthy moments in Pens history. Matt Calvert’s double OT game winner in 2014 versus the Blue Jackets springs to mind.

So how did the Penguins do in their home rink last season? Not bad is the answer. The club notched three more regular season wins in the Steel City than they did away from it. There were a lot of people in black and yellow that came out to watch those home wins in 2014-15. Penguins fans packed the Consol Energy Center to 101.3% capacity. It’s an average that syncs up nicely with totals from the past three years that had attendance at 101% or higher.
