The two placed a wager earlier this month as teams from their home states — the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Chicago Blackhawks — faced off for the National Hockey League's Stanley Cup Final.
Nelson bet a box of Cuban sandwiches that the Tampa Bay Lightning would beat the Chicago Blackhawks. Durbin countered with Garrett Max popcorn from Chicago, as well as 312 beers from Goose Island Brewery. 
As part of the senators' bet, whoever lost had to do as many push-ups as goals were scored during the series.
Nelson's office suggested earlier Wednesday that the Florida Democrat and former astronaut would do 23 push-ups for each goal scored during the six-game series. 
But Nelson asked in Durbin's office to double that amount, instead doing 46. 
The Blackhawks beat the Lightning on Monday night, marking the third time they've won the Cup in six seasons.
