The Pittsburgh Penguins are once again the champions of the NHL! After six long grueling games, Pittsburgh defeated the Nashville Predators 2-0 on Sunday night to capture their second consecutive Stanley Cup Championship. Now the entire city of Pittsburgh, and Penguins fans all across the globe, are ready to throw the celebration of a lifetime.

After taking a 2-0 series lead in the 2017 Stanley Cup Finals, the Penguins looked to be cruising towards another NHL title, however, the Predators wouldn’t go away that easy.

Nashville tied the series 2-2 with strong wins on their home ice, but in the end, Pittsburgh showed their depth and what it is like to have a heart of a champion as they captured the next two games to win their second NHL title in two years, and fifth overall in team history.

Penguins Parade Information

The city of Pittsburgh has planned a ticker tape parade to honor their back-to-back Stanley Cup champs today starting at 11 a.m. Eastern time. For the second time in as many years, downtown Pittsburgh will be jam packed as they prepare to honor their heroes of the ice.

Last year's celebration featured an estimated crowd of upwards of 400,000 fans which made it the largest sports parade to ever be held in Pittsburgh.

That record may be short-lived as City officials are expecting at least that many folks and likely more for today’s parade celebration.

After all, winning a Stanley Cup is not easy, and capturing two in a row is not done often, so don’t be surprised if this year’s parade has a few more thousand fans lining the streets than last year.

You know Penguins fans will want an up close glimpse of Conn Smythe Trophy winner Sidney Crosby and the rest of the champs!
