Penguins Fans From Across The Pond

PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) - Playoff hockey is arguably the most exciting time of the year.

Last night's opening game of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Ottawa Senators was not only exciting for the fans here in Pittsburgh but for those around the world - literally.

KDKA Radio's Bill Rehkopf was joined on the Afternoon News by Rob Howe, a member of the British Penguins Fans Club. He talks with Bill about the excitement surrounding the season and the series.

When asked how hundreds of fans from across a country the team does not even play in found each other, the answer was easy, "Twitter; social media really helped brings us all together."

He was also able to answer the question on everyone's mind - Fleury or Vokoun?
