“It is great to win in front of your own fans,” Hossa commented after the sixth and final match between his Chicago Blackhawks and Tampa Bay Lightning which ended 2:0, as quoted by the Sme.sk website. “In such moments I am thinking about my family and I send greetings to all my fans.”

The members of the winning team had to wait for the trophy as the streets in Chicago have been flooded.
