The back-to-back champions stopped by PNC Park to cheer on the Pirates against the Colorado Rockies.

But before the teams hit the field, the Pens and Bucs spent some quality time in the clubhouse.

The two No. 29s had a chat. The Pens tweeted this photo of goalie Marc-Andre Fleury and Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli with the caption “Backstoppers Unite.”

And here’s Phil Kessel and Andrew McCutchen:

And, we know Sidney Crosby can create magic on the ice, but what about his throwing arm. Here he is testing it out before the first pitch with Ron Hainsey:

Then, Crosby hit the field with the rest of the Pens to throw out the first pitch.

In the end it was a good night for all as the Pens raised the Cup for the fans and the Pirates raised the Jolly Roger.

The Penguins also brought the Stanley Cup to PNC Park in 2009.

Last year, the Pirates were on the road when the Pens won. So, the Cup instead ended up at the U.S. Open at Oakmont, much to the delight of fans and the professional golfers.
