Congratulations to the Chicago Blackhawks on winning the 2015 Stanley Cup. The Blackhawks defeated Tampa Bay Lightning last night in Game 6 of the series, 2-0 and winning the series 4-2. It is the third championship for the Hawks in the last 6 years. It is the first time in 77 years that the Hawks won the Cup on home ice. Congratulations to Duncan Keith on winning the Conn Symthe Trophy as the most valuable player in the playoffs.  It was the ninth time a defenseman won it.

 

Looking forward for a repeat performance in 2016.
