After the Capitals' tour de force through their hockey season and Stanley Cup Final, the guys are taking the cup on a victory lap of epic proportions.
The cup got a big night out to celebrate in Las Vegas, where the team clinched the series in a thrilling Game 5. Then, the team finally gave fans what they've wanted for decades: They brought the Stanley Cup home.
Here's a glimpse of the journey the cup has taken with the Caps guys:
After leaving the ice, the Caps guys paraded the Stanley Cup through the MGM Grand Hotel in Las vegas.

Nationals fans got to see the cup in-person as Alex Ovechkin brought it onto the mound when he threw the first pitch.
The Stanley Cup also got to spend a little time at its new home: The Capitals’ home ice at Capital One Arena.
Later Saturday, the team took the Cup out again for a wild adventure in Georgetown.
