Capitals win Stanley Cup

TIME STOOD STILL:The phrase was not just rhetorical for the Caps’ first Cup in their history — the scoreboards froze in the final minutes, delaying their celebrations


Ovechkin has been among the most exciting and productive players in the sport since joining the Caps in 2005, but the Great Eight had never won an Olympic gold or a Stanley Cup title until now.

The title is also validation for Holtby, who has spent his entire NHL career in Washington. After several seasons of being measured unfavorably against Fleury and other goaltending greats, despite his 2016 Vezina Trophy, the Saskatchewan native also has his long-sought ring — and his unbelievable stick save on Alex Tuch in Game 2 will ring forever in Caps history.
