By now it’s no secret that the Washington Capitals have been celebrating their first ever Stanley Cup championship in impressive fashion and acting like there’s no tomorrow or an upcoming 2019 season. The city of Washington D.C. was able to celebrate its first championship parade yesterday for the first time in 26 years thanks to captain Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals.
The coverage provided by NBC Sports Washington was fantastic, to say the least, but how the parade marched on and exciting memories the Capitals provided was that much better. The joyous parade began on D.C.’s Constitution Ave. and ended at the National Mall, with the Washington Monument and Capitol Building at opposite ends of the Capitals and a vast crowd flooding in front of the team’s stage.
Even before the celebration got rowdy on stage the Caps were sure to put their stamp on Washington’s first ever celebration with Lord Stanley down Constitution Ave.
Let’s take a look back and at all of the fun activities and top social media posts from the Washington Capitals 2018 Stanley Cup Championship parade.
