The Los Angeles Kings' Stanley Cup celebration began on Tuesday as the greatest trophy in sports spent the morning at the home of captain Dustin Brown and the night on the Hollywood talk show circuit.
First, Brown and the Cup appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," where the host wasn't sure of his guests' final statistics and later explained his mocking of Brown's water bottle mishap earlier this season was inspiration for the Kings' title run:
We're gonna miss that glorious beard, Dustin.
The busy day didn't end there as Brown and his teammates made their way to "Jimmy Kimmel Live," where Black Ace Kevin Westgarth offered the host a sip from the Cup with an assist from Willie Mitchell:
In part two, Westgarth is fingered as the King who will damage the Cup the most during his day with it:
"Will [Steve Bernier] be on the Stanley Cup?" Ouch.
As you see, a few Kings have yet to go clean shaven for the summer. We can only hope Dustin Penner's glorious facial foliage somehow makes it to next summer.
