Penguins fans take to streets to celebrate Stanley Cup win

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Penguins fans have taken to the streets to celebrate their team's Stanley Cup victory.

The Penguins beat the San Jose Sharks 3-1 in Game 6 Sunday night in San Jose, California, to win their fourth Stanley Cup in franchise history.

More than 2,500 miles away, Penguins fans packed Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh for a watch party.

When the game ended, the doors to the arena flew open and fans rushed out, cheering.

Police were out in force to keep celebrations safe and under control.

The city's public safety department took to Twitter, urging fans to ''celebrate responsibly.'' Fans seemed to be doing just that. There was no immediate word on any arrests.
