The Washington Capitals are Stanley Cup Champions, and one of the greatest hockey players in the world has now experienced the joy of winning a title.
Alexander Ovechkin, who became only the second Russian-born player to win the Conn Smythe Trophy, was as elated and emotional as you’d expect him to be after the team defeated the Golden Knights in Game 5 on Thursday night.
Ovie skated around the ice while hoisting the Stanley Cup Trophy with his teammates, and it really was a powerful moment.
So much emotion there. Gotta love it. Some NHL 19 rumors are that Ovechkin holding the cup may play a role in the opening montage for the game.
