    Thousands of fans celebrating the Capitals Stanley Cup victory have a little more time to hop on the Metro.

    Metro announced about 12:30 a.m. Friday it would extend service until 1 a.m. as a massive crowd of fans remains near the Capital One Arena.

    Although the game was in Las Vegas, Monumental Sports partnered with Metro to keep trains running an extra hour after the game. Metro said Wednesday the agreement is the first time the Metrorail system has ever extended hours for an away game.
