Capitals fans flood streets of D.C. just one win away from Stanley Cup

After big Game 4 win against Golden Knights, plenty turn out to celebrate @NHLdotcom

In case you haven't heard, Washington Capitals fans want the Cup.

And if you didn't know, just go ahead and ask them. They'll tell you.

Inside and outside of Capital One Arena on Monday, fans gathered to celebrate a big victory over the Vegas Golden Knights to put the team one win away from raising the first Cup in franchise history.

Former Capitals forward Peter Bondra captured video of fans shouting "We want the Cup" inside the arena after the victory.

Tweet from @PeterBondra12: No caption needed.

Outside, the team and former goalie Olie Kolzig shared a video of fans clad in red flooding the streets.

Tweet from @OlieKolzig37: Who says this is not a hockey town?

Tweet from @Capitals: �� #ALLCAPS #StanleyCup

One picture, taken from the vantage point of the 400 level inside the stadium by correspondent Brian McNally gives you a good feel for just how many people were outside.

Tweet from @bmcnally14: Looking west down G Street from the 400 level at Capital One Arena. The crowd also a block in each direction to the north and south on 7th Street. Insane.

Game 5 is Thursday in Las Vegas.
