CHICAGO (AP) - The party goes on for the Chicago Blackhawks.
Hours after returning from their 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins, the team has been giving fans a close-up look at the Stanley Cup, hauling their prize around to bars and restaurants around the city.
Team members greeted cheering fans with high-fives as they filed into The Scout bar in Chicago's South Loop. TV news helicopters hovered overhead as they followed the bus and limos ferrying the players and their families around town under a police escort.
Earlier, the team was greeted on the tarmac at O'Hare International Airport with a water cannon salute from about a dozen fire trucks and even more police cars - all with their lights flashing.
