After a long night of parading the Stanley Cup around Chicago Tuesday night, Patrick Kane continued his whirlwind 48 hours by finishing his taping for CBS's "The Late Show with David Letterman." 

We have a sneak peek of the segment courtesy of Worldwide Pants and CBS. 

The longtime CBS talk-show host asked Kane what it's been like since winning the Cup.

"It's unbelievable, we've been parading around Chicago the past couple nights," Kane said. "Wherever that thing is, people tend to want to be there and be around it. It's unbelievable to look at. It feels like your lifting 35 pounds, but it feels like nothing when your lifting it especially on the ice after winning." 

Letterman talked to Kane about the intensity of playoff hockey.

"I think the intensity ramps up a little bit. You should see the locker room after games," Kane said. "From ice bags, to iv's, to guys getting shot up, it's quite a scene." 

Throughout the Stanley Cup Final, many people talked about how bad the ice was at TD Garden and Kane shared his take.

"That was probably the worst ice I have ever skated on," Kane said. 

When Kane got his time with the Cup back in 2010, he brought it along for a Jimmy Buffett concert in Chicago. Any chance that happens again?

"It's coming up in Saturday in Chicago ... the Buffet concert, it might have to make a return," Kane said. 

Kane stayed hush when Letterman asked about some of the more crazier Cup stories.

"There's a lot of stuff that doesn't need to be said."

After his appearance, Kane took the Stanley Cup outside the CBS studio to hoist it above his shoulders:

The Letterman Show had a little fun with Kane and blasted him with water while he was outside:
