    NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman presents the Stanley Cup to Jonathan Toews #19 of the Chicago Blackhawks after Game Six of the 2013 NHL Stanley Cup Final at TD Garden on June 24, 2013 in Boston, Massachusetts.

    The Chicago Blackhawks may be selling vials of the ice used at the United Center during their 2013 Stanley Cup run, but the NHL is selling a piece of memorabilia that was actually at TD Garden in Boston when the Hawks hoisted their second Cup in four seasons. 

    That is because the league is auctioning off the red carpet on which the Cup was awarded on that memorable day. The carpet, which measures 4 feet wide by 10 feet long, features the 2013 Stanley Cup logo and comes with a certificate of authenticity from the NHL. 

    Bidding for the piece ends at 9 p.m. Central Wednesday. It is currently going for just a shade over $6,000, but the league is expecting the amount to go higher. 

    If fans don't have the cash on hand to pay for the actual carpet, they could bid on the back-up carpet, which would have been used had the Cup been awarded in Chicago following a Game 7. That carpet is currently selling for $2,000.
