Was at the game.  I never thought I would see a Chicago crowd give a ref a standing ovation - twice!  They announced it during one of the TV timeouts, resulting in a standing ovation and both benches clapping their sticks on the boards.  That highlight above is from the end of the game where both teams skated out to the handshakes shown above.  Really great to see, especially in person!
