The Pittsburgh Pirates have always had a good fan base, but it has only grown since they won the Stanley Cup in 2009. The Stanley Cup is the national championship for professional hockey league the NHL in the United States. Led by young phenom Sidney Crosby, the Penguins are a true forced to be reckon with. Crosby may be best known to casual hockey observers as the man who scored the game winning goal to give Canada the gold medal over the United States in the 2010 Winter Olympics.
In addition to the great stars of today, the Penguins have a long history of success, as well. One of the most well-known, and best, NHL players of all time is Mario Lemieux, who played for the Penguins during the 1980s and 1990s. He led the Penguins to the playoffs during his time and the team won two Stanley Cup trophies when he was on the team. Penguin fans still love Lemieux and Lemieux's love for the Penguins is obvious to this day considering he is a part owner of the team.
While it can be fun to watch your favorite hockey team during the regular season, that does not compare to the experience of seeing them play in the playoffs. The NHL playoffs are four rounds, with the final round being called the Stanley Cup Finals.
The Penguins are in the Eastern conference of the NHL and no matter whether they're in the playoffs or not, it will certainly be a great match-up as both teams will eagerly want a spot in the Eastern Conference Finals.
