Console Energy Center Packs A Punch

The Consol Energy Center is only a couple of years old and those of us that have been fortunate enough to go understand how nice it really is.      A website dedicated solely to rating Hockey Arena’s and their amenities recently had the opportunity to go and see it first hand and this is what they had to say.

Just like a penguin, Consol Energy Center is dressed and ready to impress in every category. Mellon Arena lies close to the hearts of Penguins fans; however, after taking a few steps into their new palace, many probably had already forgotten about the Igloo. Although Consol and its Pittsburgh counterpart of PNC Park are both are great places to watch a game, only Consol also has a team to back up its arena.(Steven Bieniek, StadiumJourney.com)

Here is the Link for the rest of the Post and for those of you who have not been able to get there yet, this will give you a small taste.      For those that have been able to go, let me know if you agree with his observations.      I know I did.
