For good reason, the folks at Hubbard Inn in River North are bringing in extra security for Wednesday night, when Hockey Hall of Famer and former Blackhawks great Tony Esposito will accompany the Stanley Cup for a brief visit around 10:30 p.m.

The reason for Lord Stanley’s return, of course, is for the Hawks’ United Center opener Tuesday — and will again be hanging out around town for a couple of days.
