There were a lot of firsts that happened out on the ice on Thursday night. The Capitals won their first Stanley Cup. Lars Eller was the first Danish player, and Nathan Walker the first Australian, to receive the honor. Alex Ovechkin, meanwhile, was the first Russian-born captain to lift the trophy.
Jay Beagle, on the other hand, has the unique distinction of being the first player ever to win a trifecta of playoff trophies: the Kelly Cup (ECHL), Calder Cup (AHL), and Stanley Cup (NHL).
