The future of the Pittsburgh Penguins looks a little brighter after a four hour meeting in Philadelphia Thursday evening.
Owners Ron Burkle and Mario Lemieux, Gov. Ed Rendell, Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato and NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman met in Philadelphia for negotiations for a new arena for the team.
The talks ended shortly after 11 p.m., and the sides agreed to meet again next week.
“We had a very constructive meeting where significant progress was made,” the team and elected officials said in a joint statement. “The parties have agreed to meet next Wednesday. They have also agreed that no further comment will be made.”
