by Staff Writer / Pittsburgh Penguins

The Nashville Predators made their first appearance at the Consol Energy Center against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday, March 22.

Tweet of the Night:

     "While I know anything can happen, its going to be tough for ANYONE in the league to take out the Pens in a 7 game series."

"Cine: @pghpenguins #cinemagraph #gif" -- @AndyMenarchek
The Pens came out strong taking a 2-0 lead by 15:54 in the first. Here's what you had to say about the double dose of opening offense from Malkin and Dupuis:

"We gunnin for that # 1 spot. #Pens" -- @katie_matte

"Didn't take long for the "MVP! MVP!" chants to start in Pittsburgh. Malkin scores and it's 1-0 already, not even 2 minutes in. #LetsGoPens" -- @loganlights

"Already lost my voice at the Pens game. It's gonna be a good night." -- @Timorrowland

"#pens unbeatable..2-0 not even 10 min in" --@zacmassa66

"Lesson learned. I can no longer come into a Pens game a few minutes late and expect that no one will have scored. #letsgopens" -- @britt_thomas

Matt Cooke opened up the second,  landing the puck behind Pekka Rinne for his lucky number 17 of the season:

"Cooke is Cooking!!! #Pens 3-0" -- @nicklachey_10

"Best hands in hockey matt cooke. #sniper" --@dgovan312

"Cookie Monster (the real one) just showed up on the jumbotron to celebrate Matt Cooke's 17th goal of the season." -- @LGP_netwolf

"Someone give Matt Cooke a cookie!" -- @JVAME87

With a secure playoff established by tonight's win , post-season speculation snuck unto twitter:

"The #Penguins are just monsters right now!!! Keep it going guys :) ur gonna do awesome in the playoffs... #Pens all the way!!!:)" -- @patch117

     "18,579 is tonight's attendance and is also the same # of consecutive games the #pens might go w/o a regulation loss if this keeps up."                                                                   @PGHVC
