  (Mr. LIPINSKI asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. LIPINSKI. Mr. Speaker, I rise to congratulate the 2013 Stanley 
Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks. Last night, sorrow quickly turned to 
joy when the Hawks netted two goals in 17 seconds late in the game to 
avoid a game seven. The crowd at Palmer Place in LaGrange erupted as 
Chelsea Dagger played, and we celebrated a second Cup in 4 years.
  Congratulations especially to Captain Jonathan Toews, Conn Smyth 
Trophy winner Patrick Kane, and goalie Corey Crawford. But this was 
truly a team victory--from all of the players on the ice, to Coach Q, 
to GM Stan Bowman, to owner Rocky Wirtz. The entire organization 
deserves to be commended, and I thank all of them for once again making 
us proud.
  I also want to congratulate the Boston Bruins for their great season 
and a hard-fought final befitting an Original Six matchup.
  Mr. Speaker, I ask my colleagues to join me in congratulating the 
Chicago Blackhawks, and I look forward to seeing the Cup back in
