Pittsburgh Penguin fans march on Washington

The Penguins 4-3 victory last night over the Washington Capitals clinched their first playoff appearance since 2001. And they did so with a little help from their friends. Here's more proof that Pittsburgh fans are the most gleeful and condescending in sports today (baseball excluded).

From today's WaPo:
When the teams hit the ice for warmups, the Capitals were booed by the out of towners in the sellout crowd of 18,277. When the Penguins emerged, Crosby was showered with chants of "M-V-P!"

One Penguins fan held up a sign that read, "25 Tickets: $975, Party Bus: $1,375, 30 More Years Beating the Caps: Priceless."

Is there a better feeling than showing up the opposing fan on his team's turf? Suck it, Washington!
