LOOK: Caps fans turn Nation’s Capital into party central

By Jesse Reed

Safe to say, Caps fans are getting into the spirit of Game 5 well in advance of the puck dropping in Las Vegas Thursday night.

The Washington Capitals hold a 3-1 lead over the Las Vegas Golden Knights and can close out the series to win their first Stanley Cup Final in 43 years.

This has fans in our Nation’s Capital going bonkers, shotgunning beers out in the streets, where there are lines going around corners to liquor stores and bars as they prepare to watch and celebrate together.

Just check out some of the pictures and videos that are pouring in.

No doubt, these fans have all been keeping up with their weird and crazy superstitions ahead of tonight’s huge game, too.

Good luck, Caps fans. For the sake of your hangovers tomorrow, we hope it was all worth it.
