Now that's how you celebrate!

Lightning's Mathieu Joseph Ate Poutine In The Stanley Cup

In what can only be described as the ultimate fine dining experience, Tampa Bay Lightning player and Montrealer Mathieu Joseph brought the Stanley Cup to Montréal-Nord this weekend and ate a giant poutine out of it.

Hockey's holy chalice has had many things in it from beer to a baptized baby but never poutine — at least as far as we can tell!

Joseph was visiting the borough over the weekend and attended a celebration at a local rink.

The Cup has been making its rounds in Quebec despite the Montreal Canadiens's loss in the final.

Lightning player Alex Killorn took the Cup to his hometown of Beaconsfield and the municipality of Saint-Narcisse-de-Beaurivageannounced on Facebook that Yanni Gourde, now of the Seattle Kraken, will bring the Cup to the town on Tuesday.
