The Washington Capitals honored the World Series Champion Washington Nationals before Sunday’s game against the Calgary Flames. Since the Nats’ win, the two teams and city have been abuzz in a celebratory mood.

Various Capitals players including right wing Tom Wilson, goaltender Braden Holtby, and center Evgeny Kuznetsov wore Nationals jerseys as they were heading down to the locker room this evening. Captain, the team dog and veteran service dog in-training, jumped in on the pre-game mood as well.


The newest D.C. champions arrived at Capital One Arena with the Commissioner’s Trophy in tow. Nationals’ first baseman Ryan Zimmerman and outfielder Adam Eaton showed off their new hardware with the Capitals coaching staff. Zimmerman also read the starting lineup for the Caps, followed by Eaton downing a beer Oshie-style.


Pitcher Sean Doolittle had a little fun as well:


Prior to the puck drop, the Nationals were honored on the ice by the Capitals, with the Nats players, coaches, and staff donning white Capitals sweaters.

Nats pitcher Sean Doolittle tweeted a photo of himself holding the World Series Trophy and credited the Capitals with showing the Nats how to win a championship.

Capital One Arena’s sound system blared “Baby Shark”, which has become the Nationals’ unofficial anthem among fans.

Following Capitals forward Jakub Vrana’s hat trick, the Nationals went into a frenzy, tossing their World Series champs hats towards the ice:

The Capitals and Nationals are champions but most importantly, best friends. Once again, congratulations to the Washington Nationals for bringing a World Series title to D.C.!
