Chicago Bears congratulate Blackhawks on Stanley Cup win

BY foxsports • June 16, 2015

There's a dynasty taking shape in Chicago, as the NHL's Blackhawks took down the Tampa Bay Lightning, 2-0, in Game 6 to clinch their third Stanley Cup Final since 2010 on Monday. The Bears shared in the citywide celebration by congratulating the neighboring hockey franchise on social media.

After taking Game 1 of the championship series, the Blackhawks fell twice in a row to the Lightning. Then, the 'Hawks ripped off three-straight victories to wrap up the series at home. In turn, the Stanley Cup was claimed and hoisted on Chicago ice for the first time since 1938.

Perhaps inspired by the Blackhawks' tremendous success the last half-decade, the Bears should look to replicate the dominance of their body-checking brethren on the gridiron.
