For the third time in six years, the Chicago Blackhawks have won The Stanley Cup. However, this one was extra special – it was the first time since 1938 that the Hawks won the last game of the series in Chicago.
This meant that after a long, stressful Stanley Cup Finals against the Tampa Bay Lightning in six games, the team could celebrate in the city that night.
Several of them chose to go the The MID, a club on the west side close to the United Center. Just a few days before, the club hosted Skrillex and Diplo, Hardwell, Eric Prydz, and Yellow Claw for Spring Awakening afterparties. Tiesto, who played the Sunday headliner slot at the festival, returned to The MID Monday night to play a much smaller show.
Johnny Oduya, Corey Crawford, Brandon Saad, Kris Versteeg, and Scott Darling all joined the party, bringing the Stanley Cup with them to celebrate with a couple hundred lucky fans. Oduya got a little crazy, and TMZ captured a shirtless pic of him.
You can check out that entire photo album via TMZ here, along with a short video below.
Check back for more footage from the exclusive concert soon.
