Stanley Cup used as milk holder on 'Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon'

The Stanley Cup continues to milk it.

The trophy, which will be awarded to the Boston Bruins or St. Louis Blues following Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final at TD Garden on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET, NBC, CBC, SN, TVAS) was in New York on Tuesday making an appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon."

Fallon was with actress/singer Selena Gomez and Sean Evans, host of "Hot Ones Live," a Youtube show in which people eat chicken wings that get progressively hotter while answering questions about themselves.

For those that can't handle the heat, they have a glass of milk, but Fallon didn't want a glass, so he had his milk served in the Cup.

"That is the actual Stanley Cup right there," he said when keeper of the Cup Phil Pritchard brought the trophy on stage. "That is the real deal. Thank you, Stanley."

Fallon and Gomez managed to eat their wings, and although they each had a glass of milk during the meal, the Cup remained stationary on the table and unharmed.

The Cup also made an appearance on "Today" in New York on Wednesday morning in which the anchors touched the Cup. But don't worry, they were wearing gloves to keep the trophy pristine.

It's best that Stanley didn't spend too much energy; he'll be partying with one team on Wednesday and for the rest of the summer.
