While Blackhawks players were on the way home from Boston, some fans in Chicago took their celebrating a little too far.

Chicago Police News Affairs tells WGN that 23 people were arrested across the city overnight. Most were arrested for disorderly and reckless conduct, police said. A few were arrested for fighting.

Police said 21 tickets were issued for less nonviolent crimes.

Police did not have a breakdown of the neighborhoods where the arrests and tickets occurred.

As of noon Tuesday, police did not have an estimate of the crowd size in Wrigleyville or elsewhere.

The City of Chicago and the Chicago Blackhawks will celebrate the Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup victory with a parade this Friday morning.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel didn’t releases any details about the parade at an unrelated news conference on the West Side Tuesday.

But he had high praise for the team after watching Monday night’s cup-clinching victory.

He called the come-from-behind win the “Miracle on Ice.”

He also says he met with the team Tuesday morning at Scout Bar in the South Loop.

“I didn’t knew beer was the breakfast of champions,” Emanuel quipped.

Celebrants draped the Hinsdale home of Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville overnight with toilet paper.

But it didn’t seem to faze the unflappable Canadian coach ¬†who signed autographs and breakfasted at a restaurant in Hinsdale following his team’s repeat Stanley Cup-winning performance last night in Boston.

Arriving in Chicago early Tuesday morning, Blackhawks players brought the Stanley Cup trophy all around the Chicagoland area for fans to see.

Hundreds of Blackhawks fans descend upon the York Tavern in Oak Brook in the hopes of seeing the Stanley Cup. But, it appears their dreams were pinned on false rumors on social media.

Coach Joel Quenneville lives nearby, and his car was spotted in the area. When the Hawks won the Cup in 2010, “Coach Q” brought the trophy to the tavern three days after the team returned home from Philadelphia.

The owner of the tavern had no idea what was going on at his business. It took a call from police to alert him.

“We were driving in the mall and we saw all the cars, so we stopped, and one of my friends said that last year, the Cup came here after,” said one fan.
