If you thought this tradition was dead after the Capitals won the Stanley Cup in 2018, it’s not.
Sunday, after the Penguins beat the Capitals 4-3 at Capital One Arena, Pens fans walked across the street and stormed the steps of the National Portrait Gallery.
The mob’s chants included “Let’s Go Pens!”, “We Have 5 Cups”, and “This Is Our House.”

[Does best sarcasm voice] Now, this is how you expertly celebrate an early February regular-season victory. [rolls eyes]
Meanwhile, the Penguins’ Twitter account retweeted this video.
Great game! Live nearby so caught some of the post-game celebration across the street! pic.twitter.com/UdvuIJIAiV

Now excuse me while I harken back to May and June 2018 while rocking my Reclaimed The Steps RMNB t-shirt.
Yup, I’m good again.
