by Staff Writer / Pittsburgh Penguins
Pens fans were overjoyed at the news that forward James Neal was added to the 2012 NHL All-Star Game, which takes place this weekend in Ottawa. Here are some reactions via Twitter.

     "@pghpenguins now have 3 players in the all star game. Congrats @jneal_18 on getting the credit you deserve"

     "@pghpenguins if he didn't put up all-star numbers then I don't know how to define an all-star. Well deserved Nealer!"

     "The @NHL is finally acknowledging what @pghpenguins fans have known for months. @jneal_18 is an All-Star. Better late than never. Congrats!"

     "@pghpenguins how was james neal not on there originally? He's amazing #pens"

     "So glad James Neal is off to the all star game... Can't think of anyone more deserving with the season he's having #Pens #NHLAllStar"

     "Also, I just fist-pumped at my desk about James Neal. Should've been an all-star from the start. #nhl #pens"

     "James Neal should have been at ASG already, so in that respect, Ovechkin was right; someone else did deserve it more."

     "#pens @jneal_18 deserved to be at the ASG in the first place not just as a replacement! Congrats though nealer! #beastmode"
