Fourteen years ago today, the Stanley Cup made its way to the city of Pittsburgh as the Penguins had a parade to celebrate their Cup win.

Hundreds of thousands of people lined the streets of Pittsburgh as the Penguins traveled down the Boulevard of Allies with the Cup in tow.

Pittsburgh Police estimated 375,000 people attended the parade.

.....it was quite the eventful afternoon in Pittsburgh.

The next (two) Cup parades in 2016 and 2017 would be a bit more of a party with the Penguins young core turned into grown men.
