There was so much excitement in Chinatown Saturday. The Caps were playing their first Stanley Cup Final game since 1998.
That’s when another Russian Sergi Federov, a former Caps player himself, scored in game three of that series to give the Detroit Red Wings the win. Fitting for Ovi, a life-long fan of Federov.
Captain Ovechkin got the Caps on the board first in this game three with a glorious backhanded goal that dazed Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. Our photographer, Brittney Marcum, caught the moment in keen detail!
It was the perfect set up for a winning night in Penn Quarter. We can’t wait for more hometown celebrations on Monday!
