Pittsburgh Business losing 2.2 million every time a game isn’t being played

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.”
