Jonathan Toews, Blackhawks congratulate World Series champs on social media @NHL

The longest-running curse in North American sports ended early Thursday morning, when the Chicago Cubs won their first World Series since 1908 with a dramatic 10-inning, 8-7 victory at the Cleveland Indians.

There was plenty of reaction from the NHL community after the Cubs' historic triumph, starting with the hometown Chicago Blackhawks.

Tweet from @NHLBlackhawks: They've done it! Congratulations to the @Cubs and their fans on this historic #WorldSeries win! #FlyTheW Chicago!

Tweet from @JonathanToews: Just witnessed Chicago sports history. Where were you when the @cubs won the #worldseries? Congratulations Chicago!!!

Goaltender Scott Darling plans to honor the Cubs championship with a special mask for the 2017 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic against the St. Louis Blues at Busch Stadium on Jan. 2, 2017.
