The Chicago Blackhawks are arguably the model franchise in the NHL, and they cemented that status with their 2-0 victory in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.
The victory not only set off celebrations throughout Chicago, but it also prompted a wide vareity of sports franchises to congratulate the champions as they celebrate their third title in six seasons.
Of course the Chicago teams had to be among the first to issue their congratulations:

They weren't alone, however. Numerous NHL teams made it a point to give praise to the champions:

Of course, no celebration of a championship would be complete without getting credit from a certain professional wrestler. No. It isn't the one you're thinking of:
