BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) -- The Stanley Cup is still making the rounds in Illinois.

The Pantagraph reports that Jay Blunk, the vice president of the Blackhawks, took it to a Bloomington fire station Saturday night. The cup was set to be on public display in downtown Danvers on Sunday afternoon.

The Hawks won the championship over the Boston Bruins in June. Since then the Stanley Cup has been all over Chicago and in Springfield, among other places.

The Stanley Cup made similar rounds in Illinois in 2010 when the Blackhawks last won the championship.
