Oshie, Ovechkin lead Capitals' Stanley Cup party into a street fountain

Hockey players party hard.

Why spend thousands of dollars to celebrate a championship at Disney World when there's a perfectly good street fountain to have fun in?

Alexander Ovechkin, T.J. Oshie and a bunch of their teammates from the Washington Capitals took their Stanley Cup celebration, which was in its second full day Saturday, to six inches of water in the streets of D.C. 

Oshie is one of four players from the Capitals with ties to Minnesota that won the Cup. The other three are Shane Gersich, Travis Boyd and Matt Niskanen.
