Stanley Cup Tracker: Blackhawks, Fans Celebrate With Historic Trophy (VIDEO/PHOTOS)


The Stanley Cup is on the move.

Moments after the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Boston Bruins in the 2013 Stanley Cup Final, the team was presented with Lord Stanley's Cup. After a champagne-soaked celebration in the visitors' locker room in Boston, the team and its prize were on a plane back to Chicago.

Neither the team nor its fans let the lateness of the arrival at O'Hare on Tuesday morning temper the party. The team touched down shortly after 4 a.m. and was greeted by a welcoming party that included about a dozen fire trucks and even more police cars, according to The Associated Press. Before each player gets his own day with the Stanley Cup, it will be the guest of honor at a series of celebrations in Chicago.

Although the official victory parade won't take place until later this week, the Blackhawks and the Cup were already out on the town early Tuesday morning.
