The Washington Capitals are Stanley Cup champions.

After 1,124 games, 23,610 minutes on the ice, 668 goals and seemingly endless heartbreak, Alex Ovechkin is finally a Stanley Cup champion.

The Capitals came back to beat the Golden Knights 4-3 in Game 5 of the 2018 Stanley Cup Final Thursday night to win the franchise's first championship in its  44-year history. At times it may have seemed like this moment may never come, but it's here now, and Ovechkin's reaction to reaching the peak of his career is absolutely priceless.
