Sunday night’s victory brought the Blackhawks within one game of taking home the Stanley Cup—and, other than the United Center, what better place to watch the drama unfold than at the aptly named Stanley’s Kitchen & Tap? Our photographer dropped by the Lincoln Park bar to snap locals’ reactions to game 5; if you like what you see, head there on Wednesday to watch what could be the clincher in Hawks’ first championship since 1961—or visit one of Chicago’s 50 other Blackhawks-approved bars. Also: Relive game 1 with our photos from Market.
