    Hockey fans who endured another lockout are in for a treat that'll cap a sprint of a season. The Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins are set to compete for the Stanley Cup for the first time in the NHL's first final featuring Original Six teams since 1979.

BOSTON (AP) — The Bruins got a rousing sendoff from Boston fans before boarding a plane for Chicago to meet the Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup finals.

About 1,000 fans filled the concourse at the TD Garden in their black and gold shirts, waving signs and chanting "We want the Cup!"

The Bruins walked by after practice in their suits and ties, giving fans high-fives and posing for pictures. Players told reporters afterward that they aren't expecting such a warm welcome in Chicago.

The Bruins will play the Blackhawks in the best-of-seven Stanley Cup finals for a chance at their second NHL title in three years. The series begins Wednesday night. Game 3 is in Boston next Monday.

Going back to the first round, Boston has won nine of its last 10 playoff games.
