Yikkkkkes. From the Pittsburgh Business Times:
The National Hockey League's lockout is costing Pittsburgh about $2.2 million for every game that isn't played.
That word comes from the CEO of Visit Pittsburgh. He laid it out clearly in an interview with KDKA:
Davis says a lot of that money comes from fans of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin who come into town from points north.
“Torontonians come down in masses; Canadians come down in masses to attend the hockey games,” he says. “Just sit outside at the Marriott and have a drink and watch the buses, all the buses are from Canada.”
