The Pittsburgh Penguins aren't the only ones happy to be back in the Stanley Cup Final. Some of their most famous fans were pumped up about it as well.

After a thrilling Game 7 victory over the Ottawa Senators in the Eastern Conference Final on Thursday that saw Chris Kunitz score the game-winner in double overtime, Penguins fans took to Twitter to celebrate.

Some of the notable tweets came from actors Russell Crowe and Joe Manganiello, both longtime Penguins fans.

The famous shop Primanti Bros. named a sandwich after Pittsburgh's HBK line last year. Could Kunitz be next in line for an honor?
