John Walton’s call of the series-clinching Evgeny Kuznetsov goal in the second round against Pittsburgh is nothing short of legendary.
Walton’s final call of the 2017-18 season, as the Capitals won the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history, is just as — if not more — emotionally charged.

“It’s been a team of destiny,” Walton began. “All we need is a puck drop, and release the hounds. Eller for the draw. And as the puck drops, the words that DC fans have been waiting to hear since 1974: The Washington Capitals are the 2018 Stanley Cup Champions!”
Walton’s next words were nearly drowned out by the cacophony of Capitals fans screaming and celebrating in T-Mobile Arena.
“It’s not a dream. It’s not a desert mirage,” Walton reassured everyone listening on Capitals Radio. “It’s Lord Stanley, and he is coming to Washington.”
