L.A. Kings' Dustin Brown: Son woke up and kissed the Stanley Cup

Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown isn't the only member of his family celebrating with his team's Stanley Cup.

"[I have] three kids under the age of four. They all drank chocolate milk out of it this morning," Brown told Jay Leno on the "Tonight Show" Tuesday. "They're excited about it."

Brown, whose Kings beat the New Jersey Devils 6-1 in a championship-clinching game Monday, brought the Cup to Leno's stage before heading to "Jimmy Kimmel Live" later with his teammates.

Kimmel showed a video of Brown's eldest sons, Jake and Mason, wearing Spiderman suits and blowing chocolate milk bubbles in the cup. The video, which has gone viral, was shot by Brown's wife, Nicole.

Brown was the first player to get possession of the trophy after the team's win.

"Do the kids have any idea what a big deal this is?" Kimmel asked the captain.

"My oldest one has been talking about it for as long as the playoffs started," Brown said. "My middle one kissed the Cup first thing in the morning, so that was pretty cool."
