Alex Ovechkin and teammates enjoyed their spoils at the famous Hakassan nightclub inside the MGM Grand Hotel, continuing the celebration late into the night. "I think this moment, we were waiting a long, long time". We have a lot of work to do. "I'm just very excited and I'm very happy right now". "We just have to believe it and keep working, keep playing". The Capitals overcame a pair of home overtime losses to start the postseason in the first round against the Columbus Blue Jackets, before taking out the Penguins in round two.

Washington jumped out to a 2-0 series lead over the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference Final before dropping the next three contests. It marked the first time the Capitals have won the championship trophy, and it's the first major sports title for the city since 1992.
