Stick with us and we’ll fill you in on all of the Cup’s various stops throughout the day.
The Cup’s first destination? The main quad at Georgetown University, a slap shot’s distance (okay a few slap shots) from the fountains where the trophy’s summer fun began in earnest in June. The Capitals may have lost Jay Beagle to the Canucks in free agency, but they still have a fan in Jack the Bulldog.
After Georgetown, the Cup made a stop at the Lincoln Memorial, which reminded of this beautiful minimalist print commemorating the Capitals' title.
From the Mall, the Cup traveled to Ben’s Chili Bowl on U Street, where Slapshot showed off his championship ring and posed for photos with employees inside the legendary D.C. establishment. Chili half-smokes anyone?

The Cup returned to the Mall, this time at the other end of the Reflecting Pool beneath the Washington Monument.
The Cup made one final stop en route to Capital One Arena at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. Capitals fans gathered on the steps of the museum to celebrate wins throughout last season’s playoffs.
