For the second time in four years, a crowd estimated by the city of Chicago at more than two million people helped the Blackhawks celebrate a Stanley Cup championship on Friday. And the crowd that jammed Grant Park partied like it was 2010 all over again. "You guys make the United Center and the city of Chicago and best place to play in all the NHL," said winger Patrick Sharp, who told the crowd exactly what it wanted to hear. "We've got a special team here and a special organization and special group of people celebrating with us tonight. We're just so proud that we could bring this to a great city like Chicago. In 2010 you guys waited 49 years to do this. This year we waited three. What do you say we get back and do it again next year?"
