Optimistic Fans Buy Tickets To Game 5
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Despite being down 3-0 in the series, the Pittsburgh Penguins are hopeful for a Game 4 victory tomorrow night.
The organization is already looking forward to game 5 as tickets went on sale Tuesday morning.
There is no question that Pittsburgh fans are fed up and frustrated by what has happened on the ice.
“They are playing in the way that Philadelphia used to play when I was growing up and that was really not Penguin hockey,” J.T. Nagy said.
Despite the disappointment, some are not losing hope just yet.
Nagy bought two tickets to Game 5 at the arena box office Tuesday morning.
Should the Penguins win tomorrow night, Game 5 will be Friday at Consol Energy Center,
“I don’t know if we can win, but I like their chances to get back in the series and hopefully at least win two, you know, make a series out of it, give us something to watch,” Nagy said.
Roughly 2,000 tickets went up for grabs at 10 a.m., but only 400 of those were sold within the first hour. The majority of those sales were online.
Organization officials said they aren’t surprised by that number, considering that we don’t know if there will even be a Game 5.
Some fans have no doubt.
“I’m hoping, I’m praying that Game 7 will be here in Pittsburgh. That’s what I’m thinking,” Brian Cook said.
Although a lot of fans are still optimistic, if the Pens don’t make a comeback, those Game 5 tickets can be refunded.
