Red Line: Capitals drink from the (Stanley) Cup of glory; T.J. Oshie
Seriously, that happened. Congratulations to the Washington Capitals, the 2018 Stanley Cup champions. In the hours after the first title from one of the four major local sports teams, Ben Standig, Associated Press NHL guru/Conn Smythe voter Steve Whyno and NBCSW’s Chase Hughes gathered to discuss the wild night. Topics include how the Caps thrived in the postseason, Alex Ovechkin’s crowning achievement, Barry Trotz pushing the right buttons in his contract year, why facing the expansion Golden Knights worked for the Capitals and if one title can turn into a dynasty. Plus hear from an emotional T.J. Oshie in Vegas.
