The Washington Capitals' summer with the Stanley Cup came to an end Wednesday night when they raised the 2018 championship banner and then throttled the Boston Bruins 7-0. But the festivities of last year's triumph did not end before the Cup, like any tourist, had a chance to see all the sites in the DMV. 
Tuesday the Stanley Cup visited The Sports Junkies and it was announced EB, Bish, JP, and Cakes were all getting rings.

The Cup had a busy Wednesday, first sneaking off to Georgetown, before going on a long jaunt around the city.

One place the Stanley Cup didn't visit this summer? Pittsburgh.
