Pens Fans Thoughts on First Half of Season

by Sam Kasan / Pittsburgh Penguins
With the Pens in the midst of the All-Star break, we asked Twitter follows...

     "OK fans, we're at All-Star break. What are your thoughts on first half season? Fave moments? Games? Surprises? Impressions?"

Here are your responses...

     "One of my fave moments was seeing the reaction of the crowd with all those signs during Sid's first game back!"
     "The Malkin Hat trick Buffalo game, Crosby's return against Isles. MAF stoning the Blues. Letang ot winner in MTL. LA Game"
     "James Neal setting the tone for his season with the first goal of the season, Sid's return, Blues game and Geno HT"
     "So impressed w/ improved play of Engelland & Niskanen. Both more comfortable in system & with puck, E's skating better too."
     "show of unity when they all wore C during practice which seemed to spark their 7 game win streak "
     "Geno saying 'good luck' to Sid pre isles game showing complete unity between the two and desire for future..."
     "Cooke proving all his critics/haters wrong has been my favorite part of this season"
     "Driving 7 hours to game in Tampa Bay to see Geno's natural hat trick!"
     "my favorite is how strong this team is. Even when everyone else doubts them they always prove them wrong. "
     "Being on the steps after the December 1 win against the Caps. So many great Pens fans cheering for the boys."
     "Most pleasant surprise: Joe Vitale. Great to see him have success in a tough lineup."
     "the Kunitz, Malkin, and Neal line for being the best line in the NHL"
     "Simon Despres' first career NHL goal against Buffalo - now that was a HUGE grin (second best was the Simon getting punk'd)"
     "one of the positives is how well WBS is developing our players so they can just slot right in when the need is there"
     "Watching the Pens win 7 in a row after losing 6 in a row."
     "the consistent play of Fleury has given the a chance to win almost every night. Can't win without great goaltending"
     "When coach Dan wore that god awful xmas sweater behind the bench."
     "the Lokomotiv benefit game."
     "Geno's hat trick in Tampa! A friend who just passed away grew up in Pitt and I got to take his 13yr old to that game."
     "Favs= LA game, Cooke's control, Love for Sid, Drive/Passion/Heart to end the streak, Flower's ninja moves, PensReports!!!"
