Research/Knowledge Regarding Road Title Clinchers

June 6, 2016

My research and knowledge shows that no team in any of the 4 major North American sports leagues has won as many as 3 league titles without ever winning one on the road which is the case to this point in time, regarding the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Only one other team, among the 122 currently in the 4 major North American sports leagues,  won its first three titles on the road and that team is the NHL, New York Rangers.

The Rangers, who face no such problem now or for at least close to 50 years, once had to abandon their home arena, one of the incarnations if you will, of Madison Square Garden, to make room for the annual circus held there.

That was the case involving their first three Stanley Cup titles won in 1928, 1933 and 1940, making it certain that if they “titled” it would be clinched on the road.

The team’s much publicized 1994 title not only ended a 54 year title drought, but is the only one of the four Rangers’ Stanley Cup victories clinched at home.
