The day after: How the Blackhawks' win was covered

CHICAGO -- The Blackhawks' third Stanley Cup win is obviously front-page news here in the Windy City and across the hockey world.

In my final report, Patrick Kane was again a huge factor in another Hawks championship

In the Chicago Tribune, Chris Kuc writes the Hawks did it under the banners of their past champions and their great legends.

In the Sun-Times, Mark Lazerus writes that the Hawks' core has morphed from a bunch of kids who became champions to a bunch of champions who now have kids.

The Tribune added this live story on its Web site, trailing the Cup and the team's celebration in the wee hours (I know as I walked past the locker room on the way out of United Center, the smell of champagne and cigars clearly wafted into the hall).

Then there's the other side. In the Tampa Tribune, the Lightning's ride lasted two months but they ran out of magic carpet two wins shy.

In the Tampa Bay Times, the Lightning picked the worst possible time for their only three-game losing streak of the year.

Here's a look at today's Chicago papers:
