After the players came out on to the ice, general manager Marcel Desjardins, head coach Rick Campbell, wide receiver Brad Sinopoli and quarterback and Grey Cup MVP Henry Burris met at center ice for the ceremonial puck drop.
It wasn’t your typical puck drop, however. Since the Grey Cup is, well, a cup, Burris and Sinopoli put the puck inside of it and dump it out for Erik Karlsson to win.

The Redblacks beat the Calgary Stampeders 39-33 in a thrilling title game on Sunday with the 41-year-old Burris becoming the oldest player to ever win the Grey Cup.
.@Senators That was fun, guys. How about we host you next?
