Stanley Cup champion Penguins greet raving fans

Pittsburgh Penguins

Pittsburgh Penguins

This is how Pittsburgh celebrates at home.

Sidney Crosby raises the Stanley Cup on the Boulevard of the Allies in Pittsburgh, in front of a parking garage packed with jubilant fans, on Wednesday, June 14, 2017, during the Pittsburgh Penguins' victory parade and rally. If you were born in one of the nearby communities, from Elizabeth to Beaver Falls to Zelienople to Eighty Four, you are one.

Having experienced the unrivaled feeling in the sport of winning the Stanley Cup, the Penguins certainly want to feel it again. It sounds impossible. But people said the same thing about them repeating. "You can't go in there expecting anything different". "Playing with someone that long, going through what we did, it's pretty special". On Monday, an adorable young Pittsburgh Penguins fan managed to get Sidney Crosby to autograph his t-shirt, and he just could not contain his emotions when he got interviewed by WTAE-TV Pittsburgh. After Crosby temporarily turned the Cup over to Evgeni Malkin, he did the same - but only after almost fumbling it.

This year's parade was different than last year's in that it ended at Point State Park, where a stage was set up so the team and coaches could address the fans.

Every team has to expose one goalie to the Vegas Golden Knights, so now the Penguins can protect 23-year-old Matt Murray. "I wonder if we could repeat, or three-peat, should I say". They've got nothing on Pittsburgh, I'll tell you that.

It's hard to imagine that the Penguins would have won the Cup - or even advanced past the first round - had Rutherford traded Fleury at the deadline.

Scalise's position as whip in the Republican-controlled House makes him one of the most senior figures in Congress. Scalise's office issued a statement saying the congressman was undergoing surgery but was in stable condition.

Now, as Phil Bourque says...

Part of the team's reserve stems from the fact their superstar captain is not an orator.

"Look at this scene". Thanks for your support. "But we always said, 'nobody said that you can't.' And our guys were determined".

"I wasn't mad. And it's not just about Sid", Rutherford said. When the Penguins return to work in September, they'll try to become the first team in more than 30 years to "threepeat". "The Steelers" six Lombardi Trophies, obviously, were won at neutral sites.

For the second year in a row, the Penguins rode through the streets of downtown Pittsburgh and waved to thousands and thousands of fans who came out to celebrate the Stanley Cup winners.

Murray was apparently healthy beginning in the Eastern Conference Final, but he didn't take over until Game 3 when Fleury was pulled in the first period. The youngster took the Penguins the rest of the way to the championship.
