Glad to see hockey in Chicago relevant these past few years. What an amazing renaissance of a franchise.

Even if both fanbases are lucky enough for a rematch next June, and even if it were to go 7 games, it likey couldn't match what both cities were just treated to this year, even though it was only six, not seven, games.

It should be some parade on Friday. Didn't the 2010 parade attract an estimated two million?!

Just think...that during the lockout, some called NHL players greedy, that the game and its innocence would be gone forever, perhaps the NHL would dissolve, blahblahblah. Even how this year's winner would have an asterisk. As it turned out, NO asterisk at all. The only asterisk should be how wonderful it all was!

Well, if you count the overtimes there were over 7 games. An incredible series, especially for us since we don't often see champions in this town. Every game was hard fought. More twists and turns then a Disney ride. Great drama against two great teams.

Both cities surely boast of great sports histories, but it would be nice to see the Bruins and Sox win it at home. The Bruins in 1970 won here but on the road in 1972. Celts did win here recently, however.

Both the recent Blackhawks' Stanley Cups since 2010 were on the road. Too bad for you guys. Did the White Sox win at home or away in 2005? We're most of the Bulls' titles split home and away?

I was at game 6. Very shocking in that last minute and a half, but as a hockey fan, that was just a gutsy performance and the better team did win. I enjoyed the playoffs immensely.

The only home clinching championship games were the two of the Bulls six titles. Besides that, the 1917 White Sox and that's it. Hey, it's hard enough for us to get a championship let alone a home clincher.

I was at game two of the Stanley Cup and even though we lost in OT it was still awesome. I can't imagine the atmosphere at game 6? For us going from defeat, to ot, to victory in 17 seconds and the opposite for you guys. It was shocking all around. Obviously at the other end of the shock spectrum for you guys.

Thanks for stopping by and starting this thread. This seems to have been one of those seasons you see from time to time in every sport where one team stands out all the way through as clearly the best in the league. This year in the NHL, that team was the Blackhawks. I did think the Bruins really might pull it off once they moved ahead early in the series and got home ice, but ultimately the best team in the league did come out on top.

Great series! And very true about how the OT's did make it seven games in effect. Congratulations, Chicago.
