     "My life is so good right now and it's 87% thanks in part to @pghpenguins. #seewhatididthere "


This used to be a street, before being taken over by fans at the #PensBigScreen
With fans lining up as early as 2:30 p.m., the crowd at the Pens Big Screen took over the area surronding the Consol Energy Center. A sea of support from the fans outside and online kept up before and during the action:

The Flyers struck first in the first, which was matched by Steve Sullivan. The first period, however, ended with the Flyers up 2-1. Jordan Staal tied up the game again, taking the lead in the NHL for playoff goals scored and the accolades of the appreciative fans:
