Chicago Blackhawks Win Another Stanley Cup

NHL Stanley Cup 1930

The NHL’s Stanley Cup in 1930

The Chicago Blackhawks are the 2015 NHL Stanley Cup Champions. They capped off another great run with a 2-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 6, giving them their third Cup trophy in six years.

In a tightly contested series that didn’t even see a two-goal lead until the last five minutes, the Blackhawks were able to outlast the Lightning to claim the Cup in front of their home crowd for the first time in almost 40 years. After winning the first game, Chicago lost the next two, leaving them in a hole as game 3 approached. They have not lost since, winning three straight games to finish their run this year.

Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith won the Conn Smythe trophy for being the MVP of the playoffs. The 31-year-old was the unanimous choice to win the award. He adds it to his trophy collection that includes three NHL championship rings, two Norris Trophies and two Olympic gold medals.

At one point there was some fear that even if the ‘Hawks won the game they would not be able to hoist Lord Stanley’s Cup in front of their fans after the game. The Trophy had some trouble getting to the arena due to bad weather. But the Cup made it and the celebration began.

That celebration will culminate with a parade through the streets of Chicago on Wednesday. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel promises it will be a world class celebration.

One thought on “Chicago Blackhawks Win Another Stanley Cup

  1. I hate the Blackhawks with a burning passion. They are terrible who want nothing more than to tie women to railroad tracks, and steal candy from children. I’ve hated them for quite sometime and always. When ever I make a bowel movement I call it taking a Chicago. I urge all of you to do the same, and take a big Chicago for me.
