Class personified: Blackhawks thank Boston after hard-fought Finals

The Stanley Cup Finals between the Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks was one of the all-time greatest series we'll ever see The Blackhawks ended up winning in spectacular fashion, scoring two goals in 17 seconds to win Game 6 in amazing comeback fashion.

After the series, the Blackhawks took out a full page advertisement in the Boston Globe, thanking the Bruins and the entire city of Boston.

This is one of the classiest moves I've seen in a long time by a team after winning a championship. No one would have blamed them if they completely forgot about their opponents and got busy celebrating. Instead, the Blackhawks took a little time out to show some grace in victory.

Here's the ad, in case you haven't seen it yet:

Kudos to Rocky Wirtz and the entire Blackhawks organization for an incredibly classy move. Hopefully this becomes the model for other teams to follow in the future.
