At this point we already know it is coming, but still:
NHL expected to cancel games for rest of November on Friday. #nhllockout

Where this really gets depressing is when you think about how this will knock out all of the Thanksgiving week games. A lot of former Pittsburghers, who return for the holidays, always make it a point to get to a game. The Pens had games scheduled the day before and after Thanksgiving.
The impact on local business and the city of Pittsburgh is catastrophic at this point.
RT @friedgehnic: NHL informs teams games up to and incl Nov. 30 will be cancelled. As far as I know, there was no mention of Winter Classic.
