Thursday night, the Washington Capitals won the Stanley Cup. Many of the players and their wives took to Instagram to document the monumental moment… and the after party.
First up, we have Jakub Vrana taking a video of himself wearing a Brooks Orpik jersey and drinking an aluminum Bud Light. He looked peak “Las Vegas nightclub” chic. Vrana was also spotted later sporting an Evgeny Kuznetsov jersey. I just hope he knows that he also has a jersey with his own name on it.

Don’t worry, he also posted a nice selfie with Madison Bowey.
Next, a lovely photo of Chandler Stephenson embracing his lady! Also if anyone knows where she got her shoes, let me know…
Of course, would I really be writing an article if Leni Oshie wasn’t mentioned? No way, so next up we have videos posted from TJ Oshie’s wife, Lauren! Their youngest daughter, Leni had some fashionable headphones on to protect her ears from the loud noises. Later on in the video, Lauren shows her husband carrying the Cup around and finally meeting his family on the ice for some quick kisses before he was off to do more interviews. Just be prepared for some ultimate cuties below.
The Instagram story for Philipp Grubauer is a trip. It starts with Ovheckin STILL carrying the Cup and ends with Grubauer dancing with the Cup like it is his only child that he hasn’t seen for years.
Here is Tom Wilson lifting the Stanley Cup and upsetting a lot of people. Here is also Tom Wilson lifting the cup with his family and making a lot of people melt.
Alex Ovechkin’s wife, Nastya, posted probably the most emotional Instagram story, in my opinion. Is it because you can literally hear how relieved and happy she is? Is it because you can see her crying? Is it because now we know she’s also expecting a baby? Is it because you remember how happy she clearly makes Ovechkin after he’s had some rough times in the past? Yes, to all of the above.
I love a happy Dmitry Orlov, don’t you?
Andre is gonna Andre. His Insta story videos are from the club, but he also added a cute picture of the trophies and some heart eye emojis. I like to think the emojis were for Ovechkin, but who really knows.
Andre Burakovsky was also seen gathering the children on the ice after the Cup. He was with Lyla Oshie and had Vince Backstrom on his shoulders.

For the first Dane to ever win a Stanley Cup, Lars is looking pretty calm and collected with his gal.
Shane Gersich was in party mode too as he posted a quick video of the Cup in the club.
Nicklas Backstrom’s trainer posted a perfect photo of the two best friends!
Once again, Evgeny Kuznetsov is out here melting my heart with a quick video of him and his daughter Ecenia. Does anyone else feel like she grew up suuuper quick, or is that just me?
Quick nap for Ovi with the best silver snuggle companion ever.

Zach “BEAMING” Leonsis
A well deserved hoist from Capitals anthem singer, Bob McDonald!
And last of the players, but certainly not least, Devante Smith-Pelly took to IG to post some sultry selfies with the Cup and a cameo from John Carlson.
Pete is a good friend of Ovi’s and the owner of Club Glow. Pete got some excellent photos with Ovi and Andre. You go, Club Glow Pete!
