PITTSBURGH (AP) -The start of the Penguins' home game Saturday against Florida has been moved to 3:08 p.m. so it doesn't conflict with the Steelers' home playoff game that night.
The Panthers-Penguins game was to have started at 7:30 p.m., or a half-hour before the Jaguars-Steelers AFC wild card game - Pittsburgh's first home playoff game in three years.
The Penguins made the switch after the NHL approved the move. Neither the Penguins nor the Panthers play on Friday night, so neither team will be playing a day game following a night game.
