ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Sidney Crosby has seen it all during his decorated hockey career, but the "Face of the NHL" was blown away by the estimated 650,000 faces staring back at him on Wednesday. The Penguins captain reveled in the moment as the City of Pittsburgh honored the team after it repeated as Stanley Cup champion with Sunday's 2-0 win in Game Six against the Nashville Predators. "Look at this scene. This is what it's all about," said Crosby, who joined his teammates riding in pickup trucks, convertible cars and buses in a parade that began on Grand Street and ended at Point State Park. The two-time reigning Conn Smythe Trophy winner occasionally jumped out of his vehicle to give fans a close look at the Stanley Cup and allow them to take pictures. The Penguins, who captured their second straight Stanley Cup championship and fifth in franchise history, became the first team to repeat as champion since the Detroit Red Wings in 1997-98.
