Stanley Cup dented after toppling from table during ceremonies in Newfoundland

ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - The storied Stanley Cup is sporting a new dent today after toppling from a table in Newfoundland.

The silver trophy was being readied for a helicopter flight from St. John's to Bonavista, the hometown of former Boston Bruin Michael Ryder, when it fell over.

Officials quickly righted the cup and the welcoming ceremony continued.

Ryder, who just signed a two-year contract with the Dallas Stars, is the second Newfoundlander to bring the Stanley Cup to the province.

Detroit's Dan Cleary did it in 2008 after the Red Wings defeated Pittsburgh in the final series.
