SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) – The Pittsburgh Penguins win their fourth Stanley Cup title, beating San Jose 3-1 in Game 6.

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.

Pittsburgh Penguins fans are being urged not to try to greet the team at the airport when they return from winning the Stanley Cup in San Jose.

The Penguins are expected to arrive later Monday, but the Allegheny County Airport Authority says there will be no public viewing or rally at Pittsburgh International Airport.

Fans were, instead, urged to wait for a victory parade to be announced. The announcement is expected later Monday, with the parade being scheduled later in the week.
