CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Blackhawks arriving home with the Stanley Cup have been greeted on the tarmac with a water cannon salute, about a dozen fire trucks and even more police cars - all with their lights flashing.
And minutes before the team's chartered Boeing 737 from Boston touched down at 4:05 a.m. at O'Hare International Airport, lightning danced across the sky as the edge of a windy storm front passed through.
Still, the Blackhawks' return couldn't match the dramatic finish of their championship-clinching win over the Bruins on Monday night at the TD Garden.
Chicago secured its second NHL title in four seasons when Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland scored 17 seconds apart in the last 1:16 of regulation of Game 6 for a stunning 3-2 win over Boston.
