Nine early playoff exits paved the way for the Capitals unexpected Stanley Cup run and made the trip down Constitution Avenue all the more satisfying to the NHL champions and their fans.

Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom rode the final bus down the mile-long parade route Youth Josh Sitton Jersey , lifting the Cup to roaring cheers and waving to seas of red in the crowd.

Five days after capturing the franchises first title and the first of any kind by a Washington team in the major four professional sports since 1992, this was their day to soak in winning following so much disappointment.

Because we waited so long, I think it feels even better, Backstrom said.

Hundreds of thousands of fans lined Constitution and filled the National Mall on Tuesday to celebrate a long journey fulfilled. One fan held up a sign reading, Worth the Wait, but before the end of the rally, T.J. Oshie already had the crowd thinking about next season.

Theres been a lot of chants, Oshie said. Theres been Authentic Christian Kirk Jersey , Lets Go Caps, theres been, We Want the Cup. Weve heard in the streets, Weve got the Cup. Weve got a new one for you today Back-to-back.

The serious work of getting geared up for the 2018-19 season begins in the coming days and weeks with decisions on coach Barry Trotz, defenseman John Carlson and other free agents. But for players such as Ovechkin and Backstrom who have been through eliminations at the hands of the Penguins, Rangers, Lightning, Canadiens and Flyers dating to 2008 Cheap Jeremy Kerley Jersey , the partying leading up to the parade isnt close to ending.

It just started, Backstrom said.

Much like the Capitals did over the weekend by taking the Cup to local bars and restaurants, the parade was a chance to celebrate with a fan base that had to endure 42 seasons without a Cup.

Fans congregated on the National Mall hours before the parade began, filled the steps of the National Archives and lined up 20 deep in some areas to catch a glimpse of players riding more than three dozen buses from 23rd Street to 7th.

Look at this look at the people thats here Ovechkin said. We thought it was going to be crazy, but its basically nuts. You guys are killing it.

Ovechkin, Backstrom, veteran Brooks Orpik, owner Ted Leonsis and team president Dick Patrick took up the most prominent place in the parade on the last bus with the Stanley Cup. Chants of Ovi! Ovi! alternated with pleas of Raise the Cup! which Ovechkin Brent Suter Jersey , Backstrom and Orpik did off and on while sipping from beer bottles.

Trotz threw beads from his double-decker bus, but the pending free agent coach saved potentially his most meaningful impact of the day for his speech at the rally.

I know our years of adversity has sort of came to an end, Trotz said. We did this together and it feels so special. Love this, love the community. Were going to do it again.

Theres no certainty about Trotz unless he signs a new contract, but the Capitals should have much of their core intact as they try to complete the difficult task of repeating. Before rival Pittsburgh went back-to-back in 2016 and 2017, no team had done it since Detroit in 1997 and 1998.

Of course, that didnt stop players from bringing it up to the delight of the crowd that stretched down the Mall almost to the Washington Monument.

I couldnt see the end of people from the stage, winger Tom Wilson said. Its unbelievable to give back the least we could and just celebrate with them.

Beyond the scripted two high school marching bands Aaron Hicks Jersey , an F-16 flyover, Budweiser Clydesdales and past greats such as Olie Kolzig and Peter Bondra backup goaltender Philipp Grubauer sprinted around with the D.C. flag, Oshie chugged a beer through his jersey and Ovechkin and fellow Russian Evgeny Kuznetsov dropped F-bombs on stage.

Trotz invoked Martin Luther King Jr. by saying, We had a dream, and we did it. Leonsis quoted John F. Kennedys Ask Not speech. Wilson brought it back to the title by shouting, Everybody says what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but we brought the Cup home!

By the end of the sun-soaked rally, Capitals players swayed together and sang Queens We Are the Champions Cheap Braden Smith Jersey , a song theyve been belting out renditions of with varying sobriety over the past few days.

Its been a long time since we had a championship here in this city, Backstrom said. To be able to after all these years to bring it, its great. Its a sports city. Theres not another city that deserves a championship more than D.C.
