Watch Blackhawks bask in Stanley Cup glory at Wrigley Field

The corner of Clark and Addison was celebration headquarters for thousands of Blackhawks fans after the team won its third Stanley Cup in six seasons Monday night.

Tuesday night, the Blackhawks brought hockey's ultimate prize to the Friendly Confines and kept the party going.

As they've done in championship years past, Wrigley Field was one of the first destinations on the Blackhawks' championship tour. Brad Richards carried the Cup in from the right-field corner, and the team paraded the trophy around the warning track.

Eventually, Patrick Sharp handed it off to Cubs manager Joe Maddon, who hoisted it above his head. Finally, the Cup made its way to the pitcher's mound, courtesy of Patrick Kane, ahead of a special first pitch from Jonathan Toews to Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo. Then came the team picture, featuring the Blackhawks, the Cubs and Lord Stanley.

Let the summer's biggest party begin.

The Blackhawks Store on Michigan Avenue was reportedly one of several stores that was looted during Chicago protests on Saturday.

Jeremy Ross, a reporter for CBS, tweeted the video below.

Protests began in Chicago on Friday evening as people gathered in response to George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.

As the protests swelled Saturday evening, Mayor Lori Lightfoot instituted a curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. that will last indefinitely.

During this time of a global pandemic where healthcare workers risk their well-being to keep us safe, and essential works do the same to keep business operating, many teams and athletes have stepped up to do their part and assist their local heroes. Count the Nylander brothers, Alex of the Blackhawks and William of the Maple Leafs, as the latest to chip in for the cause.

Alex and William have partnered up with local restaurants of Stockholm and Toronto to help feed frontline workers and those in need.



“We have partnered with some of our favorite restaurants so that healthy meals can be prepared and delivered to frontline heroes and others in need,” said William. “In Chicago, we are supporting local food banks," added Alex.

As Alex and William both prepare for the NHL’s postseason, the brothers hope to continue to provide and deliver meals to frontline workers and those in need while bringing awareness to COVID-19 in the process.
