Alexander Ovechkin gets emotional hoisting Stanley Cup Trophy after win

By

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.
