Las Vegas valley still has Golden Knights fever, despite Stanley Cup loss

The Capitals haven't stopped partying since defeating the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final this past Thursday.

"Too excited, too strong", Ovechkin said after sailing his first throw over Max Scherzer's head at Nationals Park.

He's now a Stanley Cup champion as owner of a team that Forbes Magazine rates as the 11-richest in the National Hockey League at $625 million, a return on investment for Leonsis of 735 per cent (39 per cent per year over 19 years).

"I still can't believe it", Ovechkin said. "Russian machine never breaks", Backstrom said, referencing Ovechkin's famous quote. Ovechkin continued to drink his bottle of water.

"So I think they're wide open for business".

MASN on-field reporter Dan Kolko later interviewed Ovechkin and right wing Tom Wilson in the team's suite at the ballpark.

We're willing to excuse Ovechkin for his initial inaccuracy. He became the first Russian and third European behind former Detroit Red Wings star Nicklas Lidstrom and Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins to captain a Stanley Cup victor. The Capitals eventually made it onto the big screen, dancing to "I'm Sexy And I Know It". "We got some time to worry about the other stuff". The two teams posed around the trophy in the clubhouse before the game, and though Nationals Manager Davey Martinez and Trotz had texted often, they hadn't met until Saturday out of superstition.

After the 2018 Conn Smythe victor was jeered by his teammates, Scherzer tossed back the ball to give him a second attempt that he made good on. "It's so important for a team to have that sort of "I love coming to work" attitude, which our guys did, and you can do some pretty special things". I thought we had a great thing going here. I want to be part of a great team. "I think they're going to be aggressive and use the tools that they've got right now and the basis of the year that they had to not behave like an expansion franchise and get in on all of the big boys if they can".
