There's something particularly—how do I put this—"boozy" about hockey. It's a game played way up north in the dead of winter, and that involves a lot of pain, and so a nice cold beer sounds like a good pairing, even if you're just thinking about the sport.

Well, the Washington Capitals did plenty of drinking last night as they tore through Vegas, with Alex Ovechkin deservedly overhead-pressing the Stanley Cup for hours on end. The Caps' 4-3 Game 5 victory over the Las Vegas Knights sealed their first Stanley Cup in the team's 44-year existence. I suppose that if you're going to win an away game to clinch a final series, it's probably not a bad option for it to be in Vegas.

Things started out in the locker room to hilarious effect:

And then the Caps kind of jumbled the order of "Remix to Ignition" because after the party, it was the hotel lobby:

And then after the lobby, it was the after party, which duh, had to take place in a nightclub bumping EDM:

And then the obligatory drink from the Cup:

Are you supposed to leave this cup empty for some reason? Anyway, it seems like Ovi and the boys had a grand old time. Their cup runneth over.
