It's a hockey night in Pittsburgh with the Penguins and Islanders currently playing in Game 5 of the first round of the NHL playoffs, and the Steelers rookies are present at the game.


The Penguins Twitter account posted a video of running back Najee Harris and center Kendrick Green hyping up the crowd. Harris had a Pirates hat on and a Sidney Crosby jersey, as well.

Harris was decked out in Pittsburgh gear, but Green just had on a plain Black T-shirt. Green posted on Twitter asking for somebody to hook him up with some Pirates and Penguins apparel.

The Steelers have their first OTAs practice tomorrow and with the Penguins making the playoffs for 15 consecutive years, it has become a spring tradition with Steelers players attending playoff games at PPG Paints Arena. It's also an introduction for the Steelers rookies to the Pittsburgh sports scene, which they'll experience at Heinz Field this fall when the stadium is back at full capacity.


After two periods of play, the Penguins lead the Islanders, 2-1.
