The Capitals have lit up the entire Washington metropolitan area red with their Stanley Cup win and the affect has reached both former and current DC athletes around the country and world. Here are just some examples of said Caps fever.
THEY. DID. IT!!! 🏆

Congrats to DC & the Caps. Hockey is such an emotional game. Congrats to Ovechkin. One of my favorite athletes to watch compete.
— Bobby Boswell (@bobbyboswell) June 8, 2018
— John Harkes (@johnharkes6) June 8, 2018
How can you not love Ovechkin? Congrats to all my friends down in DC who have been waiting a long time for this.
Side note: The handshake and trophy ceremony in hockey has to be the best in all of sports.
