While the rival Pittsburgh Penguins and the Philadelphia Flyers do open their lockout-shortened seasons this afternoon in Philly, make sure to stay on your couch and tune in to Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia at 8 p.m. for the first annual Philadelphia College Hockey Faceoff between the Penn State Nittany Lions and the University of Vermont Catamounts, taking place in the Wells Fargo Center following the Pens-Flyers game.
For $5, you can enjoy 119 glorious minutes of His Dudeness and all the white Russians and bowling that go with it at the State Theatre. Just don't be out of your element. One show starts at 7:30 p.m., with another one at 10. For the die-hard among you, why not wear your bathrobe to the event?
