You win the Cup, you get the Cup.
So it goes for NHL players fortunate enough to play for a Stanley Cup champion team. Per tradition, each member of the winning side gets one day with the Cup - few questions asked. Some take it for a night on the town. Others take it down waterslides or for an afternoon of fishing or to their favorite tavern.
Matt Cullen of the Penguins had his day with the Cup this weekend. After some family time with the trophy Friday night and Saturday morning, Cullen brought Lord Stanley to Moorhead on Saturday afternoon for local fans to enjoy. And boy did they.
