(CP) - The Anaheim Ducks showed off their new hardware to late-night television viewers across North America Thursday night.
Fresh off their Stanley Cup-clinching win over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday, Jean-Sebastien Giguere, Chris Pronger and Brad May appeared with the famous trophy on NBC's late-night talk show "The Tonight Show". The three players, clad in Ducks jerseys, brought the Cup on stage to applause after host Jay Leno's monologue segment.
May handed the Cup to Leno, who held it gingerly for a couple of seconds before giving it back.
"You've brought a lot of pride and honour to California," said Leno, before asking "Where are you guys from?"
May and Pronger replied "Canada" while Giguere said "Montreal," prompting laughter from the audience.
When asked how he celebrated the Ducks' Cup win, Giguere replied "We celebrated with our family and got really drunk."
Leno then asked if "Tonight Show" announcer John Melendez could drink from the Cup.
Pronger replied that only hockey players could drink from the Stanley Cup, then tossed Melendez a protective cup instead.
