Marin, who has been with the Capitals the past 10 seasons, spent the beginning of his day with his wife Rachel and the Capitals jersey-clad infant at their home in Alexandria, Virginia.

Marin, an Arlington native, was the fourth member of the Capitals to spend his day with the Cup in the Washington area. But the Cup will leave the United States capital for Russia, where Alex Ovechkin will begin the Cup's European tour with a public viewing in Moscow before the Russia-Croatia World Cup soccer quarterfinal Saturday.
