The Greatest Fans in Hockey...

So if this isn't one of the cutest pictures in hockey I don't know what is:


That's Malkin last night at the Pens "Shirts Off Our Backs" event where the players get to give their jerseys to lucky fans attending the game.

Anyone else's team do something cool like that on the last home game of the season?

Maybe not something like that EXACTLY, but I still think my team is pretty darn cool!

Yup. We also had jerseys off our backs. Gracie won Pyatt's jersey (not with her in that pic) and you may remember her from this video.

I think I would have traded a kidney to get one of those. I'm actually right behind where Malkin's head is. The players had so much fun with that, I'm really glad that most of the winners were kids.

sherry - yeah your team is def. pretty darn cool : ) that's so nice of them : )

rinslet - wow - gracie is the ultimate 2 year old hockey fan - that's so cool she won : )

elly - ah you were at the game - i'm so jealous! I'm thinking about buying tickets for it next year since I'll be back in Pittsburgh. I was glad a lot of kids won too : )

It was a great game, and I've never had such good seats before (3rd row), although not so good for getting thrown t-shirts! I was so close I could see Talbot's scruff, it was great.

I think I'm going to try to go again next year, it was definitely worth it!

The Calgary Flames do a "shirt-off-our-backs" nite...It was the second last home game though. I missed this year's, but last year it was mostly adults who got the jersey's, no cute little dudes! Good on the Pens, it's all about the fans!
