This post can be alternately titled — “More people care about college hockey than preseason professional basketball.”

We’re a little late with this, but 6,370 fans showed up to watch the Penn State hockey team open its new home — Pegula Ice Arena — with a 4-1 win over Army last Friday night. (Second Army shoutout of the day on The Level, albeit for the wrong reasons.)

By contrast, 6,315 filed into the Wells Fargo Center to watch the Sixers lose to the Nets, 127-97, on Monday. Your team! Your town! Your — nevermind.

Anyway, we haven’t had the chance to check it out yet, but PSU’s new facility looks pretty cool, and we’ve got this time lapse from the opening night festivities:

And some other neat pictures of the arena:
