PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Penguins fans have been lining up along the Stanley Cup victory parade route since dawn and police say they’re prepared even if the crowd is as big as the one that turned out for a Super Bowl victory parade in February.

The Penguins’ parade begins at noon Monday and will cover the same route that drew an estimated 300,000 fans to the city two days after the Steelers won Super Bowl XLIII.

The Penguins won the franchise’s third Stanley Cup on Friday with a 2-1 victory in the seventh game of the finals in Detroit.

Players and coaches are expected to address the crowd at a stage erected at the end of the parade route downtown.
