WASHINGTON CAPITALS CELEBRATE STANLEY CUP WIN AT HAKKASAN NIGHTCLUB LAS VEGAS
The newly crowned champs party with the Stanley Cup and Tiesto
After winning the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history, the Washington Capitals celebrated at Las Vegas’ legendary Hakkasan Nightclub early Friday morning, just hours after they were crowned.
The champagne-soaked NHL champions arrived at the MGM Grand hotspot at 1 a.m. with the Stanley Cup in hand. Alex Ovechkin led his team to two VIP tables while hoisting the Cup over his head as he walked through the club. After setting hockey’s top prize down briefly to kiss it, he again hoisted it above his head and went straight to the DJ booth.
“Ovi” then returned to his VIP table where he joined the rest of the champs, including Braden Holtby, T.J. Oshie, Brooks Orpik. Moments later, “The Great 8” again took the cup to the DJ booth to celebrate with Tiesto, who was manning the turntables — both were seen kissing the cup. “Ovi” later led the crowd in a “Let’s Go Caps” chant, despite the fact he was in enemy territory, having just dispatched the home team, the Vegas Golden Knights.
During the hour-long celebration, the players sipped on Grey Goose, Don Julio 1942 and cases of beer. When the Caps players weren’t kissing and dancing with Lord Stanley’s Cup, it stood nearby taking in the party.
