650000 celebrate at Penguins Stanley Cup parade

After six long grueling games, Pittsburgh defeated the Nashville Predators 2-0 on Sunday night to capture their second consecutive Stanley Cup Championship. They have the luck of the world on their side, as evidenced by this recent playoff run in which they defied the odds in at least two of their four playoff series wins.

Penguins fans from all over the region made it downtown for the parade.

After taking a 2-0 series lead in the 2017 Stanley Cup Finals, the Penguins looked to be cruising towards another National Hockey League title, however, the Predators wouldn't go away that easy. "I think, first of all, most coaches don't have that type of decision because they don't have two No. 1 Stanley Cup-winning goaltenders at their disposal like we do".

"I always say best organization, incredible team", Malkin said. Crosby has played in 148 playoff games, 57 goals, 107 assists and 164 points (19th for all-time playoff points). But the Pens - even without star-studded players like Kris Letang - seem like a well-oiled machine under head coach Mike Sullivan.

Malkin led the playoffs with 28 points, while Crosby, who won his second straight Conn Smythe Trophy, was second with 27 points.

By buying out the 33-year-old veteran, the Rangers can protect an extra player from Vegas and make room on their blue line for next season. Other fans said they'd driven eight hours from NY to get seats, he said.

"It was an opportunity to throw out a challenge to our core players right away", Sullivan said with a grin. Lemieux was found to be in the early stages of the disease after a large lymph node was removed from his neck, according to a statement issued by the Pittsburgh Penguins and approved by team physician Charles Burke. None of them had a cap hit of more than $675,000.

Up until that point, Marc-Andre Fleury had backstopped the team through two and a half rounds after regular-season starter Matt Murray went down during warmups of Game 1 of the post-season. Their franchise cornerstone will take a brief breather this summer, maybe go fishing back home in Nova Scotia and then start pointing toward next season.

Pittsburgh grocery stores and fish markets began checking ID's during the Final to try and ensure that no Predator fans got their hands on catfish to sneak into PPG Arena.
