The Chicago Blackhawks' Stanley Cup win Monday against the Boston Bruins will be rewarded with a regional cover of this week's edition of Sports Illustrated.

The team's remarkable come-from-behind 3-2 win against the Bruins in Game 6 of the Final showcases Dave Bolland's game-winning goal with 58.3 seconds left in regulation, 17 seconds after Bryan Bickell had tied the game.

The banner headline reads "First City," a play on Chicago's "Second City" nickname, and includes the cover line: Chicago's spectacular coda to a remarkable NHL postseason.

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
