W. Pa. couple thought Pens KC game was at home

PITTSBURGH (AP) - September 29, 2011

Paula Rymarchyk of Lower Burrell tells a local television station that she bought tickets for the game against the Los Angeles Kings off TicketsNow.com. She assumed the game would be at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh because the Penguins were listed as the "home" team - even though it was a neutral site game at the Sprint Center in Kansas City.

Rymarchyk and her boyfriend learned otherwise when they showed up at the empty Pittsburgh arena.

Penguins spokesman Tom McMillan says the couple will get tickets to a regular season game soon.
