Congratulations to the NHL on its newest high profile fan, Plaxico Burress, who was on Twitter last night cheering on the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Unfortunately, the former Steeler is not quite fully caught up on the rules of the game, as the above tweet came after just the second period.

Luckily for Burress, the Pens did hold on to win and take a 3-1 series lead, and the wide receiver was able to play off the early celebration as another of his famously accurate predictions.
