Can't take you anywhere: Stanley Cup already has a dent
DETROIT -- The Stanley Cup is OK after taking a tumble during the Red Wings' celebrations in Detroit.
NHL spokeswoman Bernadette Mansur said on Saturday that the Cup got a slight dent Friday after some players took the trophy to Cheli's Chili Bar, a downtown restaurant owned by Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios.
Mansur says a keeper of the Cup traveling with the trophy was able to smooth out the dent. She added that the trophy was expected to continue making the rounds, and that "the Cup has seen worse."
Thousands of Red Wings fans cheered Friday during a parade and rally in downtown Detroit where the Cup was shown off.
The Red Wings clinched the Cup on Wednesday night in Pittsburgh against the Penguins.
