On Saturday, Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin had his official day with the Stanley Cup. He took it to the FIFA World Cup Fan Fest, Dynamo Moscow’s headquarters, and to a private party at Arbat Hall. Per NHL.com’s Tom Gulitti, Ovechkin was also scheduled to have the Cup on Sunday, for a less public celebration.
However, Ovi spontaneously decided to walk through the Red Square in Moscow, with the Stanley Cup held high above his head. He was, as you might expect, mobbed by fans that realized what was happening.
