After the Washington Capitals defeated the Vegas Golden Knights to capture their first Stanley Cup in franchise history, some Rangers players and prospects took to social media to congratulate their Eastern Conference foes.

Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist congratulated his longtime rivals Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on Twitter earlier today.

Kevin Shattenkirk saluted his former St. Louis Blues teammate TJ Oshie on his successes with the Capitals.

The current NHLers weren’t the only ones to offer their applause to the Capitals. Rangers prospects Ty Ronning and Sean Day added their sentiments as well.

Here is to hoping that Henrik Lundqvist will be the next hockey great to win his first Stanley Cup.
