Alex Ovechkin partied in a fountain again, but this time he had company.

Nicklas Backstrom joined the Stanley Cup and Washington Capitals captain to celebrate his Rocket Richard Trophy win at Fountains of Bellagio as part of the NHL Awards presented by Hulu.

Lynda Carter, the original Wonder Woman and longtime Capitals superfan threw it to the fountains, where Backstrom and Ovechkin were wearing tuxedos on a floating barge.

"We found the fountain!" Ovechkin yelled into the camera.

Then they danced with the Cup.

The clip was shot Tuesday, where the dapper dressed duo did not stay dry.

"We did [get wet] a little bit," Backstrom told NHL.com. "I thought we were going to get more wet."

Ovechkin was caught swimming in a fountain in Washington, D.C. two days after the Capitals won the Cup, and said Backstrom was instrumental in convincing him to do so. 

But they weren't going to go swimming in Vegas.

"We thought about [jumping in], but we can't," Ovechkin said.

"Someone told us we would get arrested," Backstrom said.
