The Washington Capitals advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals last night after beating the Tampa Bay Lightning who went ice cold and didn’t score a goal in the final two games of the series after digging themselves out of a 0-2 deficit in the series and taking a 3-2 lead. ]

This is only the second time the Caps are playing in the Stanley Cup Finals and the first time since 1999, so it has been a LONG time coming for Caps fans and the future Hall of Famers on the Caps’ roster. Fans in D.C. showed up in droves to Capital One Arena to watch last night’s game and after the Caps won, thousands and thousands of Caps fans took to the streets of D.C. to celebrate their team’s win with most of them chanting ‘We Want Vegas!’

Here are some scenes of the jubilation in our nation’s capital last night:
