Stanley Cup making stop in -- yes -- state Capitol

ALBANY -- You might not want to read this if you are a fan of the Buffalo Sabres, or for that matter, one of New York state's other two NHL teams.

The Stanley Cup will make a stop at the state Capitol on Tuesday morning, as part of a yearlong victory tour honoring last year's NHL champions -- the Boston Bruins.

Yes, Lord Stanley's Cup arrives in New York's seat of government where it will be carefully carried between stops at the Assembly and Senate chambers.

There is a New York connection: Buffalo's Jeremy Jacobs, chairman of the Delaware North Cos., owns the Bruins and might be on hand for the Tuesday visit.

Two questions: Will Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, a die-hard Rangers fan -- who's even traveling to Buffalo next month to watch his team play the Sabres -- be photographed touching the storied trophy honoring, of all teams, the Bruins?

And, if the Sabres pull a surprise and win the Cup this year, can Faneuil Hall be on the victory tour in 2013?
