Because the Stanley Cup was delivered to the wrong address, Rudenko and Karbler each got to see the trophy, touch it and take pictures with it in their driveway.
“He opened it up all the way, said go ahead. I lifted it up. I couldn’t believe how heavy it was. I ran my fingers over the engraving,” Karbler told Fox 31 News.
The Hockey Hall of Fame’s Keeper of the Cup, Philip Pritchard, admitted, “We couldn’t really see the number of the house, so I said we’ll just go up and knock, what’s the worst thing, they say, ‘Hi, who are you guys?’ Sure enough, I knock, ‘Hi who are you guys?’”
“I couldn’t believe it!” said Karbler. “All my thoughts were wide open because how could that be? Because I knew that we had Avalanche players that lived in the neighborhood but I didn’t know how close.”
