Chicago • Deliriously happy Chicago Blackhawks fans are descending on taverns in and around the city spurred by rumors that players might be stopping by with the Stanley Cup.

On Tuesday morning Twitter was alive with comments from fans waiting at or heading to watering holes to catch a glimpse of the Stanley Cup. The Chicago Blackhawks won the trophy Monday night with a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins. By mid-morning the Stanley Cup had already made stops at a suburban restaurant and a Chicago bar.

Fans tweeted about crowds at a tavern in Oak Brook because it is rumored to be a favorite of Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville. Meanwhile, fans have packed The Pony in Chicago because the Stanley Cup stopped there after the team won it in 2010.
