Devils forward Patrik Elias didn't steal the Los Angeles Kings' Stanley Cup puck.

Elias admits he grabbed the puck when Game 6 of the finals ended on June 11 at the Staples Center, but he isn't sure what happened to it after that.

"I don't have it. I have no idea where it is," Elias told me today. "I grabbed it when the whistle blew. I had it in front of me and I picked it up with my stick. I went over to Marty (Brodeur) and then I sat on the bench and I think I left it there."

Might he have tossed it into the crowd?

"No. I didn't for sure," Elias said.

Could he have given it to Brodeur, wondering if it might be the goalie's last game?

"No."
