Behold: Consol Energy Center

Behold, Consol Energy Center, home of the Pittsburgh Penguins and the... well, actually, it's only the home of the Penguins.

Is the center of the solar system around which the hockey world revolves the Air Canada Centre? Is it the Toronto NHL offices? Is it the Hockey Hall of Fame? Or is it the equidistant midpoint of the league's borders, some 15 miles west of the intersection of interstates 80 and 29 in exurban Omaha? ... Read More

Behold: PNC Arena

PNC Arena, home of the Carolina Hurricanes since 1999, opened the same year as Staples Center. The only problem? The Hurricanes had moved from Hartford two years prior.
