Penguins return home after clinching back-to-back Stanley Cup wins

UPDATE (1:54 p.m.) 

Channel 11 has learned the Pittsburgh Penguins parade will be on Wednesday at 11 a.m.  The city is expected to release details Monday afternoon.

Channel 11 News will bring you complete details as soon as we know them. 


The back-to-back Stanley Cup Champions are back in Pittsburgh. The team's plane landed at Pittsburgh International Airport shortly after 1 p.m. Monday.

The Penguins won their fifth title — all of which have been clinched on the road — to tie the Wayne Gretzky-Mark Messier-era Edmonton Oilers for sixth on the all-time list. The Detroit Red Wings in 1997 and '98 were the last champions to defend their title. The Penguins are the first to do it in the salary-cap era.


Patric Hornqvist scored with 1:35 left, and Matt Murray made 27 saves for his second straight shutout as the Penguins became the first team in nearly two decades to repeat as champion with a 2-0 win over the Nashville Predators in Game 6 on Sunday night.
