Fans cheer Pens at playoff game rally

| Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Hockey fans gathered this afternoon at the Allegheny County Courthouse to show their support for the Pittsburgh Penguins, who open the Stanley Cup Playoffs tonight at Consol Energy Center.

Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald and Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl declared today "a great day for hockey" as fans wore team jerseys and colors and cheered with Pens mascot Iceburgh in the courthouse's courtyard.

The team asked fans attending the 7:30 p.m. game to wear white to create a "white out" in the stands. Fans who don't have tickets can watch the game on a projection screen in the parking lot of the Epiphany Catholic Church near the arena.
