Penguins Parade But “Road” Clinch

June 15, 2017

While the Warriors finally clinched a title with a home win, not so for the Penguins, who paraded yesterday (A Penguins Parade, if you will), but have never clinched a title at home, despite having 5 NHL titles.

One day with better research, I will say for sure, but I am pretty certain no team in any of the four major North American sports leagues clinched their first and to this point, only titles on the road.

The city of Pittsburgh is a stellar (14-3) in title series/title games–all Supes, since the great 1927 New York Yankees (Lou Gehrig was born 114 years ago this upcoming Monday) swept the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 1927 World Series.

Pittsburgh (Pirates) are  (5-2) in World Series play, (3-0) since 1927 and the last Pittsburgh title clincher at home was the Pirates’ great win in #7 1960 World Series. The Steelers are (6-2) in Supes, all won or lost at neutral sites. The Pens are (5-1) in Cup Final play, with the only title series ending in Pittsburgh being the Red Wings #6 clincher in ’08.
