Detroit Red Wings defenceman Nicklas Lidstrom and goalie Chris Osgood did a little musical number with the Stanley Cup in tow as guests on NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

Lidstrom hoisted the Cup on Tuesday on the late-night talk show as the players sang: "We're bringing sexy back. We're bringing Stanley back." The song was a play on "Sexy Back" from Justin Timberlake, another guest. Lidstrom and Osgood sang after Leno asked them what they learned from Timberlake, who plays a hockey star in the upcoming Mike Myers movie "The Love Guru."

Before their song, Lidstrom and Osgood were greeted by some audience members wearing Red Wings jerseys.

The Red Wings defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins in six games to capture the Stanley Cup.
