She may not have won the crown at Sunday night's Miss USA 2013 pageant, but Miss Illinois Stacie Juris set the Internet abuzz Monday as a photo of her modeling a hockey jersey without any pants made the rounds online.
To illustrate the Stanley Cup rivalry between the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins, Juris and Miss Massachusetts Sarah Kidd posed Thursday in their respective team's jerseys. The Blackhawks and Bruins face off Monday night in Game 3 of the Cup finals.
Juris, who finished second runner up at Sunday's contest, is a previous winner of the Miss Illinois Teen USA pageant, making her the first ever winner of a teen competition to advance to the Miss USA pageant. The 22-year-old is currently a junior at Columbia College in Chicago, where she is majoring in fashion business, and eventually wants to open a dress boutique.

Though the photo helped get some publicity for the two contestants, it also dredged up Juris' criminal history.

Mall security called police officers to the scene, who booked Juris and charged her with retail theft
. The charges were later dropped.
