Highlights from the Pittsburgh Penguins Stanley Cup parade
More than 350,000 people showed up to celebrate the Pittsburgh Penguins fourth Stanley Cup win
After winning the 2016 Stanley Cup, the Pittsburgh Penguins are getting another day to celebrate with their victory parade through the streets of downtown Pittsburgh.
As Sidney Crosby and the rest of his teammates took the Cup, the Prince of Wales Trophy, and the Conn Smythe trophy through a massive crowd of people.
Most of the top moments from the parade, though, involved the Penguins' HBK line of Carl Hagelin, Nick Bonino and Phil Kessel.
They had their moment on stage at the end of the parade where Hagelin and Bonino used the time to celebrate the greatness of Kessel, which has been a common theme from the Penguins over the past couple of days after the veteran winger silenced all of his critics with an incredible postseason performance to lead the Penguins in playoff scoring.
Kessel, meanwhile, always a little shy in front of the camera or a microphone (unless he is talking about his breath), decided to only take the Stanley Cup up to the microphone and let out a giant "wooooo."

Meanwhile, the Penguins brought in the Hockey Night in Punjabi announcers that became famous during the Stanley Cup Final for their energetic calls, including the "Bonino! Bonino! Bonino!" call following Nick Bonino's game winning goal in Game 1 against the San Jose Sharks.

Then they recreated the call for the crowd.
They also have the custom title belt Triple-H sent to the Penguins to celebrate the HBK line of Carl Hagelin, Bonino, and Phil Kessel.
