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?"
                                                           @PensInsideScoop


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"
                                                           @MalkaMania71
     "James Neal setting the tone for his season with the first goal of the season, Sid's return, Blues game and Geno HT"
                                                           @PenaltyBoxMan
     "So impressed w/ improved play of Engelland & Niskanen. Both more comfortable in system & with puck, E's skating better too."

     "one of the positives is how well WBS is developing our players so they can just slot right in when the need is there"
                                                           @pollockg
