"let's do this!" --@@d_phillabaum
The experience of being a hockey fan is universal in the desire for success, but entirely different to each individual.  As the Pittsburgh Penguins welcomed the Columbus Blue Jackets for the only match up between the two teams this season, fans saw the game develop from a slow start to a 4-2 victory.

The ponderings of dedicated Pens fans:

"I'm watching the #Pens game in Prague! Thank you live streaming" -- @GSBolich

"Went over 10,000 tweets.. I tweet too much but love it. So my 10k goes to the @pghpenguins #LETSGOPENS" --@Sjaber88

It was also a day of firsts as goaltender Brad Thiessen
"The green Incredible Malk shirt, its #beastmode time #Pens" -- @keriboo2x
