The Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, a building several years in the making, finally opened its doors in August. It began hosting Pittsburgh Penguins hockey in late September.
Although Penguins fans will always have a soft spot for Mellon Arena, they were just as excited for the CEC, as it became known. The arena had modern amenities such as interactive exhibits and wider concourses, but still paid respect to the franchise's rich history.
The CEC was quickly embraced, as Penguins fans managed to sell out all 41 games there this year. It also became the home for many great moments, and more are sure to come as Pittsburgh gets ready for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
