The Associated Press and ESPN have since confirmed the coveted chalice was damaged. The Associated Press reports that the cup will come to Montreal to get fixed.

To add insult to injury, it appears as if a Lightning player is holding the Cup, looking mighty guilty. 

Over the weekend, the Cup was making its celebratory rounds in Tampa Bay, complete with a parade featuring jet skis and a whole lot of drinks.

Before you clutch your hockey puck-shaped pearls, keep in mind that the Cup that Tampa Bay players are parading around isn't actually the original goblet.

The original Stanley Cup from 1892 can be found on display at the Hockey Hall of Fame.
