The Chicago Blackhawks took the Stanley Cup to the south side of town on Sunday, to U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox.

They took a photo with White Sox players prior to the start of their game. Before going on to the field, Shaw took swings in a batting cage.

The Blackhawks won the Cup with a 2-0 victory in Game 6 at United Center against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday.

"What a thrill to win it at home and celebrate on home ice, it was a spectacular playoff run," Quenneville said on WGN during the game. "It was a tough series. You can look at all four of them but the last two were off the charts. Tampa Bay, I don't think anyone thought they were that good. Oh my, was that a tough series. Every shift was tough."
