It's an historic time in Smashville, and players received a rowdy sendoff as they headed to Pittsburgh for the Stanley Cup Final.

Hundreds of supporters cheered on the players and coaching staff Saturday afternoon at Signature Flight Support.

Kids stood in line wishing the players good luck. Some people even took pictures and received autographs.

Players said all the support from fans throughout the playoffs has meant a lot.

“They're awesome! They're so loud. They push us every game, and obviously when we meet at the airport, they're here to support us,” said Matthew Irwin. “Can't say enough good things about them.”

Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins has been set for Monday at 7 p.m.
