Why is this a big deal?
We're gonna pretend you didn't actually ask that question, but on the off chance you're unfamiliar with the storied championship history of Pittsburgh's beloved Penguins, here's what yinz need to know. This is the fifth Stanley Cup win for the Pens, coming back-to-back after last year's victory over the San Jose Sharks -- and in fact, they're the first back-to-back champions in nearly 20 years. On top of that, all five of the Penguins' Stanley Cup wins have been on visitor ice, meaning they've never had home ice advantage for a championship-winning game.
If you're still drawing a blank as to why you should care about this, just know this: Pittsburgh's own Penguins are now unquestionably an NHL dynasty, which is more than can be said for Philly's Flyers. Also, you're a terrible person.
