(CBS) When you win the Stanley Cup, people notice.

Even the President of the United States of America.

After the Blackhawks defeated the Bruins in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final to clinch their second championship in four seasons, President Barack Obama, an outspoken, die-hard Chicago sports fan, sent his congratulations to the boys via Twitter.

“Congrats, @NHLBlackhawks,” the Tweet read. “Thanks for bringing the Stanley Cup back to Chicago.”
