I told my friends I was going to a tweet up. They looked at me confused as they confirmed my absolute dorkiness and commitment to the internet. Not many of my friends tweet, but a lot of my new friends do. Friends I met through 140 characters of banter at a time. It wasn't any tweetup either, it was a Habs Tweetup.
Game two of the season featured the Canadiens first visit to the new home of the Penguins, the Consol Energy Center. With two goals in the last 2:12 of the game, the Habs completed the comeback for a thrilling win.
