The road to Stanley now runs down Madison Street
The Chicago Blackhawks ended a 49 year drought on Wednesday evening, with a 4-3 overtime victory over the Philadelphia Flyers, winning the Stanley Cup four games to two on Patrick Kane's shot which took a few moments to register with all at the Wachovia Centre.
The Hawks battled off a hard pressing Flyers squad which had sent the game into overtime in the third and came within inches of sending the series to a game seven showdown back in Chicago.
As things turn out the only flight plan being booked is that of the Hawks charter jet expected in Chicago in the early hours of Thursday morning, with what should be a rather wild celebration to come on Friday morning through the streets of Chicago.
