Pens still marveling at parade experience

by Michelle Crechiolo @PensInsideScoop / Penguins Team Reporter

A day after their championship parade through downtown Pittsburgh, the Pens players were still marveling at the turnout from the city.

An estimated 650,000 people - which is more than double the population of the city - took to the streets to cheer on the Pens as they traveled along the parade route to Point State Park. It was an atmosphere that most players called 'unbelievable,' and rookie forward Jake Guentzel said it will always be his most cherished memory.

2017 Stanley Cup Championship Notes

by Ben Segelbaum and John Petrolias @Penguins / Pittsburgh Penguins

BACK TO BACK
Head coach Mike Sullivan and the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Nashville Predators, 4-2, in the 2017 Stanley Cup Final to become the first NHL team since the 1997-98 Detroit Red Wings to win back-to-back championships.

Pittsburgh became the ninth franchise since the 1967 NHL Expansion to win two or more consecutive Stanley Cups. The Penguins (2017 & '16; 1992 and '91) joined the Edmonton Oilers (1988 & '87; 1985 & '84) and Montreal Canadiens (1976 to '79; 1969 & '68) as the only clubs in that span to win consecutive championships twice.

Pittsburgh becomes the first team in the Salary Cap Era (since 2005-06) to win back-to-back titles.

Pittsburgh became the first team since the 1992 Penguins to win the Stanley Cup and also lead the league in goal scoring in both the regular season and playoffs.

Patric Hornqvist earned a permanent spot in Pittsburgh sports lore by scoring the Cup-clinching goal. He joined Kris Letang (2016), Max Talbot (2009), Ron Francis (1992) and Ulf Samuelsson (1991) among players who have done so in club history.

Pens make history with repeat title

by Sam Kasan @PensInsideScoop / Pittsburgh Penguins

History is not made in one game. History is not made in one day. History is not made in one year.

History is built on the accumulation of time. It is as elusive as it is magnificent.

The 2017 Pittsburgh Penguins, just like the 2016 version before them, has etched their names in history, both literally and figuratively, after winning their second straight Stanley Cup championship with a 2-0 victory in Game 6 against the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena on Sunday night.
