Tonight, the Washington Capitals will host a group of local firefighters from the DCFD Engine Co. 2 at Capital One Arena for a special presentation of the 2018 Stanley Cup Championship Ring to the City of Washington, DC. Team captain Alex Ovechkin will present the ring to the firefighters who will accept on behalf of Mayor Muriel Bowser.

The Mayor’s Chief of Staff will also be on hand for the ring presentation. The ring will then be transported by Engine Co. 2 during a ceremonial trip to City Hall where they will be put on display. The ring will arrive just in time for the Mayor’s annual Open House, which will be held at the historic John A. Wilson Building on February 4. The event will kick off the start of Mayor Bowser’s second term. This year, she became the first woman ever re-elected as the Mayor of Washington, DC and the first mayor to earn a second term in 16 years.
